Cover Letters

Last quarter we learned career related vocabulary, job interviewing skills, how to give job feedback, and how to write memos. This quarter we have learned about career planning resources, and how to write covers letters and resumes. We will tie it all together doing mock job interviews next week.

Cover letter activity:

Students were asked to think about what kind of work they would like to do in the future. They completed a career interest inventory which confirmed many of their choices.  Then, they were asked to write a cover letter to a fictitious employer responding to a job listing (many students wrote about their dream jobs). This is the final product :)
