Exercise 2. Read the information about writing resumes. Then write your cover letter of a college student applying for the first full-time job and resume to accompany cover better.



How to write resume:

1. Name, address, home phone, business (or message) phone.

List this information prominently at the top of the page. Be sure to give useful phone numbers; a prospective employer should know where to reach you, day or evening. If you do not wish your present employer to know you are job hunting, ask someone to take messages for you when you are at work.

2. Position objective, as specific and brief a job title as possible.

3. Qualifications in brief: a short summary highlighting your education, experience, and skills to capture the attention of and assure the reader that you can do the job. Elaboration (but not repetition) is included in the body of the resume.

4. Experience summary

5. Educational background (can go before work experience if it is more job-related).

The purpose of this background is to indicate general and specific training for a job. A person who has little or no educational training would omit this item.

COLLEGE NAME, City, State, Degrees, majors, dates. If you received no degree or you are presently attending college, give the number of units completed (or say “degree candidate”), major, date, place.

High school: List if you have not attended college. Add dates and areas of specialty.

6. Personal paragraph

You may wish to include a statement describing personal attitudes toward work that make you a valuable and unique employee.

The type of presentation may be chronological, functional, or a combination of the two.

Chronological

Begin with your most recent job and work backward.

March, 1994 – Present: COMPANY, City, State, Job Title. Add a brief, concise description of what you did.

In this type of resume, you may wish to include a section on community service, military service, or whatever applies.

Functional

The information is arranged by areas of competence, expertise. Or effectiveness, such as public relations, management, organization, program development, sales.

List several key functions that are related to your position objective.

Follow each category with the businesslike action words you’ve collected, such as “planned” and “classified” ; then give a summary of the type of thinks you accomplished. You may either list employers and dates at the end or note them on the company’s application form.

Combination of chronological and functional

If this format suits your experience, be sure that special skills relevant to your position objective are highlighted.

Cover letter of a college student applying for her first full-time job

5401 Monroe Street Mobile, Alabama 36608 April 11,1989   Ms. Jill Jones Director of Marketing PTT Corporation Dogwood, AL 36309   Dear Ms. Jones: As a word processor at Datatime Company last summer, I had occasion to meet with people from PTT. It was your sales representative, Joan Cari, who referred me to you. I was impressed with both your product and your personnel. This June I will receive my bachelor`s degree in marketing and sales from Peachtree University. I would like to be considered for a training position in marketing with eventual sales responsibility at PTT. I am an energetic, enthusiastic person with a commitment to whatever I take on. My involvement in student affairs led me to plan and execute a successful campaign for student body vice-president. As vice-president, I met and negotiated with faculty representatives and members of the board of trustees and hosted visiting guests of the college. My senior project in marketing won departmental recognition, while my 3.2 GPA put me on the dean`s honour list. With these qualifications, I feel that I can make a positive contribution to PTT. I look forward to meeting your campus recruiter , A. J. Lupin, next month explore a marketing trainee position. Sincerely yours, Chris Cross

Exercise 3. If you decide to apply for a job in the western countries, you will probably need to form two documents: a later of interest and a resume. This is way how to do it. Read the letter of interest and a resume and try to write your own documents of the same kind.

a) a letter of interest

Dear Sir or Madame,

I graduated from Kyiv State University in 1985. Now I am finishing my post-graduate studies to defend my candidate thesis this winter. My major subject is called the theory of literature, which includes the study of the history of Ukrainian and foreign literature.

I am interested in working in the Ukrainian department of your University as a teacher of Ukrainian and Ukrainian literature for the school year 1995 – 1996. In high school I gained experience teaching Ukrainian to foreign students. In your department I could assist in the teaching of grammar, conduct a class in Ukrainian conversation or give lectures on Ukrainian literature.

If you are interested, please write me at the above address. I will look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely,

Petrenko I.I.
