What We Did
We finished our discussion of resumes.
Homework for the Next Class
Complete the final version of your memo. You will need to upload a copy to Blackboard and bring a printed hardcopy and score sheet to class. Be sure to follow the format guidelines we discussed in class.
Then, read "10 Resume Mojo Boosters Most People Miss." On Wednesday, you will take a short reading quiz on this article. If you have a printed copy, you can use it during the quiz.
Your Last Twitter Assignment: Many interviewers will ask this question: Why should we hire you? You have to know what makes you a standout, different from the other candidates. Using the hashtag #hireme, explain why you are different, better, more interesting than the other job candidates. Your Twitter participation will be evaluated on Wednesday, July 27.
Begin finalizing your resume, which you will submit as your final exam. The final document must look good. You can download and use this very bare bones template. Or you can use these samples as inspiration while you design your own. You lose 5 points for every sentence error, so proofread carefully. The resume is due Monday, August 3.
