Choose a job posting (you may search your local classifieds, Craigslist, company job boards, or other sites), and craft a resume and cover letter tailored to that job (see Chapter 18).
Your submission should be a three- to four-page Word document. The first page should contain the text of your job ad. The job advertised must be current, accessible from a source such as Craigslist or an employment website, and relevant to the professional contexts studied in ENG 315.
The second page is your cover letter. This should be formatted as illustrated in the examples from the course text and should include features such as your contact information, a salutation to the employer, and body paragraphs that explain your qualifications and interests as an applicant to the particular job youâ€™ve identified on the first page.
The third and fourth pages constitute your resume. This part of the assignment should be formatted to standard conventions (as illustrated in the course text and/or by your instructor) and include information such as educational background, employment history, and your objective as an applicant.
