Supplemental Exercises and Activities for the Resume Project
These three exercises help students develop a better understanding of how to research the job market, a particular industry, and a specific ad they think they’d like to apply for.
Once they’ve conducted job market research, the next three exercises provide them with some resources and tips on how to begin crafting their own resumes by looking at others.
Finally, once they’ve created the resume, students need to consider the next steps in the hiring process. These could include drafting a cover letter, preparing their online process to be better curated for potential employers, and how to speak confidently in an interview.
