The final assignment of Unit 2 is a 500-word formal memo in which you should reflect on the following things (in addition to anything else you think is important):
Resume Content: How did you tailor your Big List/blueprint resume into a position-specific resume? Describe the differences between the two and explain why you did things that way. How successful do you feel you were? Did you break with any of the genre conventions? Why?
Resume Format: How did you create effective resumes visually? How do the two designs differ and why? Which do you like better? What design principles did you employ, and how successful do you feel the results were? In using software such as Microsoft Word, what did you learn and what were you frustrated by?
Cover Letter: How did you approach writing the cover letter? What was difficult for you? Do you feel you made effective arguments for a job interview? What could you have done better?
Gaps in Your Qualifications: What items, if any, did you make up and why? How can you manage your education now so that your future applications (in which you cannot make things up) will have similar qualifications and experience?
