For this assignment, write a cover letter and rÃ©sumÃ© for a position advertised on Career360Â° or another online job board. Choose a job you are qualified for and that can accommodate your university schedule.
Follow the format discussed in class for your cover letter and use whichever rÃ©sumÃ© formatâ€”chronological or functionalâ€”best presents your relevant qualifications. In class, you will learn about which format works better in different circumstances, and you will need to apply that instruction when making your choice.
-Use only truthful information about yourself. Presenting false information on a rÃ©sumÃ© is unethical.
-Use your own words. Do not copy material from the textbook, class slides, another studentâ€™s work, or internet sources. Do not use a template or wizard for either document.
-Consult the cover letter and rÃ©sumÃ© checklists distributed in class (and posted on Brightspace) to ensure all assignment criteria has been met.
-Merge your cover letter, rÃ©sumÃ©, and job advertisement (in this order) into one electronic file. Save your document as a Word file.
