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:

Part 1:

Using either the Functional, Chronological, or Combination Résumé format from our textbook, craft your résumé.

Part 2:

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.
