Resume and Job Letter (9/19/07)

The Resume and Job Letter assignment was the first semi big class assignment. For some reason I had quite a bit of trouble with this assignment. I just could not understand the directions and I couldn’t get on the right track. I struggled all the way through this assignment. Knowing what I do now I would like to go back and change everything that I did.

First I would start by changing my work ethics. I would of started earlier instead of waiting for the last minute. I was very unprepared for this assignment and it showed in my grade. I did not believe I was going to need to set aside as much time as I should of. Instead I waited till the last minute and tried to finish it in one sit down.

Another problem that I struggled with in this assignment and many more through the year was editing. At the beginning of the year my editing tactics were terrible. But this also falls back on me waiting till the last minute to complete the project. Buy doing this it was really late when I finished there for I was half asleep while editing, which turned out to be a bad idea. So of course I was missing easy mistakes and received a poor grade. Knowing what I do know, I and confident that I would be able to go back and complete a better resume and job letter.

This assignment was difficult for me because it was hard for me to pretend to apply for a job. Since it is going to be such along time before I will actually apply for a job, it was hard for me to complete the resume. One main reason was I had none of the requirements that were clearly stated in the job opening. In my profession you have to pass many tests to even be looked at. I will not be taking any of these tests until I graduate. So I was having to pretend that I had completed the test and accomplished many other tasks just to fill up the resume portion.

In the course it says that if you are not planning on applying for a job any time soon that hopefully this will help learn how to research, and apply for a job more quickly and effectively. I believe that I did accomplish this goal. I will be able to research job openings and find information about the job as well. This was a good learning experience. I believe that when the time comes for me to actually apply for a job I will be able to put together a good job letter and resume.
