ENGL 2311 Employment Portfolio
To produce an employment portfolio for potential employment at your dream job.
Part One: Mock Interview—Answer the interview questions on D2L in complete sentences as if they were being asked by a potential employer. Your responses may be typed directly into the textbox or attached as .doc, .docx, or .pdf files. NOTE: Take advantage of any opportunities to elaborate about yourself and your experiences. This is your chance to provide insight the resume and cover letter cannot.
Part Two: Cover Letter—Compose a 1- to 1 ½-page cover letter using class notes and your textbook pages as guides for content, organization, and formatting. Your letter should include an address to a real company in your desired field. NOTE: Cover letters should begin with a clear expression of interest in a particular position. The remainder of the letter should elaborate on (without repeating) information you’ve provided in your resume.
Part Three: Resume—Create a resume designed to help you earn a position at your dream job with a real company in your desired field. Use class notes and your textbook as guides for organization, length, and formatting. NOTE: Read notes carefully to determine the appropriate format and organization. These are crucial for your success with this assignment.
