 Résumé and Cover Letter

 For this assignment, you will locate a job advertisement from within your field or major, then create a résumé and cover letter to apply for that job. Feel free to apply for a “future” job by imagining you’ve completed up to a four-year degree.

Ultimately, you are marketing yourself—your experience, education, skills, and professionalism—to an employer.
