Some of the most important documents that we write in our professional careers are the ones related to getting jobs in our professions. And even when we don’t “know what we want to be when we grow up,” most of us will still look for a job at one point or another.

Some of the most important documents that we write in our professional careers are the ones related to getting jobs in our professions. And even when we don’t “know what we want to be when we grow up,” most of us will still look for a job at one point or another. The purpose of this module is to get you familiar with the conventions of typical job correspondence and to give you useful practice in creating a set of job-search documents that you can use after this course. Because these sorts of documents are everyday necessities for any professional (specially those who are nearing graduation), you will work on these documents from now until the end of the semester—at your own pace. By this point of the semester, you should be confident with modifying page design, writing audience-specific correspondence, and solving documentation issues in a more self-sufficient manner. I’m happy to answer questions, but the point of this exercise to help you approach writing that is often formulaic (résumé and cover-letter websites are everywhere online) and ineffective. Now’s your chance to break the mold and apply what we’ve been learning to something that is commonly accepted, yet seldom questioned.
For this module, you will complete a job-correspondence packet, which will include three documents:
Résumé
Cover letter
Follw-up letter
By the end of this module, you should be able to:
Use job-search tools common to the professionals in your field.
Discuss your professional goals and work history in accurate, yet compelling, ways.
Produce business correspondence according to accepted conventions.
Activities
To be eligible for full credit on this assignment, you must complete the following:
Read chapter 15 in your textbook.
Identify a job opening in your field or area of interest. (The job that you identify must be real; you will include a copy of the job listing with your packet.)
Create the three documents listed above. Be sure to include the appropriate elements as discussed in class and in your textbook.
Submit your final packet.
