Your job package will include the following:
Cover Letter: This should be tailored to the specific job/internship you chose. Address the letter to the person who posted the ad and if there is not a name listed, see if you can contact the company to find the name of the appropriate person. The content should not repeat what is contained in the resume and must identify the specific job for which you are applying, highlight the qualifications that make you a good candidate for the position, and contain a request for an opportunity to be interviewed.
RÃ©sumÃ©: Your resume is a very personal sales tool that should be kept current. Youâ€™ll find a variety of sample resumes in class and should practice using different samples until it looks professional and reads well. The resume should be no longer that one page (two pages are recommended ONLY if you have extensive professional experience in the field of your choice).
References: Identify three individuals who would provide positive recommendations for you. Include their names, addresses, telephone numbers, and relationship to you. This is separate from your resume but should be printed on the same paper, in the same font and style, and with the same headings or personal letterhead. You would not mail this to a potential employer unless they requested references.
Thank-You Letter: This should be tailored to the interview that you had with the hiring manager of your position. The letter should highlight your top qualification for the position of interest, but not a restatement of your resume.
Copy of Job Posting: Copy of the internship/job posting must be attached to your job package.
Resume Clinic: During our â€œResume Clinicâ€ you will have the opportunity to get feedback on your resume and cover letter from your peers. Remember that a resume is ALWAYS a work-in-progress and your cover letter should be tailored for the position that you are applying (this document is not a one size fits all). By the time you hand in your final package, I EXPECT your resume and cover letter to be completely free of typos (-10 points each) and grammatical errors (-5 points each), just as they must be when you send them to a prospective employer.
You have to write on you own. no copy. please very cafefully on grammar and formal.
If you need any information I will send to you after.
