Technical Writing – Week 3 Assignment
Resume and Cover Letter
This week, you are tasked to write your Résumé and an Application Letter targeted toward a position of your choice where your skills, education and work experience would be relevant. This resume can be targeted to a mock business. The goal here is to create a resume that will showcase your talents and be useful outside of this class.
Writing a quality résumé and accompanying application letter is a process of self-reflection and self-promotion. You need to accurately represent yourself, celebrate your accomplishments, and demonstrate your abilities and experience, but you do not want to oversell yourself.
This assignment has two parts:
Using either the Functional, Chronological, or Combination Résumé format from our textbook, craft your résumé.
Then, write a letter of application using the format in our textbook.
Once you have completed these documents, combine them into a single document with your letter first and your résumé second, and submit this single document to the week three drop box.
