Finding and Applying for Jobs-Writing a Letter of Application (Cover Letter)
This is a great activity for a career education/business course in which you are teaching a unit related to finding and applying for jobs. This activity allows students to practice writing a cover letter. The first page explains what a cover letter is and shows the formatting and what should be included in each paragraph. The second page has the students look at a help wanted ad and they must pretend to apply for the position. You can edit the ad to have students pretend to apply for whatever you would like.
Please see our store for a great blank résumé template, directions for several great online résumé builder sites, a template for writing 3 personal references, and a grading rubric for a résumé, cover letter and personal references. We also have great holiday word searches/scrambles/trivia, keyboarding materials, Microsoft Office materials, business-related materials, and icebreaker activities.
