Product Description
Resume...that's a button on the remote, right, Ms. Whimsy?



"Resume" is actually a magical piece of paper that's kind of like a remote crossed with a good up of coffee: it gives you control over what channels of your life potential employers see first, and motivates you to make your high-school-self as well rounded as you can be. Win-win!

This download includes worksheets to guide students through the steps of creating a resume and cover letter. These can be used as a stand-alone workshop or classroom lesson or as part of a wider unit. Use to help students prepare to make their own snazzy resume, or use for mock-interviews throughout the school.

Aligns with ASCA National Model Standards for Students A:C1.2, C:A1.6, andC:A2.6.


Are you thinking, "Yeah, we're not quite there yet"? Do your scholars need a reason to write a resume? Check out this 15 minute classroom guidance lesson on WDEP for Goal Setting!
