Resume {Résumé} and Cover Letter Writing for College and Career Readiness Materials includes templates, samples, outline organizer, and rubrics for grading. Updated to include EDITABLE Google Drive templates, rubrics, and prompts you can share securely with your students, or edit for your own use!

This IS included in my mega bundle: ALL of my WRITING RESOURCES GROWING BUNDLE.

Cover Letters: Make sure your students are ready to write a formal letter of application for a job, college, internship, or scholarship. I wrote a detailed template with pointers and precise formatting. I also included two sample letters (one for an internship and one for an entry-level machinist position).

Résumés: Writing a resume can be very tricky, but with my comprehensive template and samples, it'll be a much easier process for students.

Editable Rubrics: I included several rubric options aligned to the Common Core State Standards AND two that do not include the standards in case you teach in a non-Core state.

Editable Cover Letter & Resume Templates: The editable templates are provided via a link to Google Docs and Google Slides templates for the resume pre-writing organizer, resume (five different editable templates), and cover letter (three editable samples).

Editable Writing Assignment Prompts: I recently added assignment prompts you can customize for your students.

This bundle is not just for students. If YOU need help writing your résumé and letter of application, I included a sample for a teacher.
