Resume (15 Points) and Cover Letter (15 Points)
For both the resume and cover letter, you’ll start by finding a job posting (e.g., on Indeed) that:
• requires a college degree in your field, is of interest to you, and
• has an adequate description of requirements / skills required to allow customization. (Note that
many employment agency or government job postings do not meet thisstandard.)
For these assignments, you’ll first develop a draft which will be shared with your peers for feedback.
Follow the format of examples in the book (Figures 13.11 through 13.14 for resume, or Figures 13.16
and 13.17 for cover letter). Your final draft will be submitted to Blackboard for grading after peer
feedback has been incorporated. Your job posting must be included with each deliverable.
Both your resume and cover letter must be customized to reflect the job posting that you selected.
When submitting your final draft for grading, please include a brief, separate note explaining how you’ve
customized for the particular job to which you are applying.
