· Create an effective cover letter.
· Compose an effective resume.
Resume and Cover Letter
Using the job you identified in Module 1, following the guidelines from the above readings, write a resume and a cover letter applying for the job. Submit your resume and cover letter. Remember and apply what you’ve learned so far on persuasion and writing letters. Using materials from Module 1 on goodwill communication and from Module 2 on persuasion will be helpful. In addition, materials from Module 3 on negative communication may come in handy to prevent negative impressions. Please avoid re-stating your resumes on your cover letters. Focus on your strengths and make your case a compelling one.
Your submission should include a well-written resume and cover letter. These documents should apply what you have learned in the course. Both are to be formally written in a professional way. Please use proper English. Your resume and letter will be graded on overall effectiveness and how much and how well you applied ideas from the readings. This includes their ability to generate goodwill and convince your prospective employer on your strengths, while preventing potential negative impressions. Achieving these would make a compelling case for your application and hence, give you an opportunity to be interviewed.
No citations and formal bibliography are necessary for SLP 4.
