For this discussion activity, you will need to post your response first before you are able to see what others have posted.
- Using references from Anderson’s book to support your claims, what are some of the most important concepts to keep in mind when designing career documents, specifically a Cover Letter, Resume, etc? Make sure you are using MLA-style citations to reference your sources.
- What sorts of contextual factors must you keep in mind as you think about a reader for a particular job position in your field?
- Review the sample Resume and Cover Letter. What suggestions would you provide this writer? Please note that John Doe needs help as a professional colleague, so the suggestions you are providing should be conveyed in a professional and helpful manner, since providing suggestions is a task that you may very well be asked to do in a future professional setting.
Use quotations, summaries, and paraphrases from the Anderson textbook and any previous materials assigned to help you respond to these prompts.
