Preparation: Research Resumes using the internet. Take notes.
First Response: Please provide us with the URLs (web addresses) for three sites that you felt provided useful information for resume building. Then for each site, tell us why you liked this site. What are three different types of resumes and when might you use each one? Now please start a resume of your own and attach it to this message. You need to at least have the three following: Objective, Work Experience, and Education. If you cannot attach a resume to your comment, just copy and paste what you have to the best of your ability. This is Due by Wednesday, August 14th before class (6pm).
Second Response: Please read two of your classmates responses and visit the sites he/she shared. What did you find helpful about the sites? Why? What could be improved on? Why? Please review the attached resume and answer the following questions: What type of resume choice did he/she choose (out of the three listed in his/her response)? Why is this type of resume a good choice for the field that he/she is going into (see Objective)? Or why might another layout be better? Based on the work history in the resume, what types of skills do you believe this person should focus on selling to prospective interviewers (i.e. detail oriented, good team player, etc.). What and why? And how might they better sell those skills? Do you have any suggestions for improving the information added to the resume or to the layout of the resume? What and why? Responses should be at least 200 words. These are due by Monday, August 19th before class (6pm).
