Introduction: This unit is designed to walk students through the process of developing their first resume in an interactive format. After years of teaching resume writing and grading hundreds of resumes, I’ve learned that using a process to improve the resumes as much as possible before I review them allows me to provide students with the meaningful feedback.
Student Goals: By the end of this unit, Students will:
• Utilize parallel grammatic structure.
• Develop an effective, powerful resume geared toward a specific career opportunity.
• Understand the importance of writing to the audience’s needs.
• Identify and describe their own professional skills and experiences.
