Day 5 – 9.10 – Employment Project – Cover Letters

September 10, 2014 by Brian Harmon


Return to the prompt from Monday and revise/augment your response.  If you have already written significantly (and are happy with what you’ve composed) add some personal anecdotes about your experiences with industry/academic collaboration.



  • Carolyn Miller’s “What’s Practical about Technical Writing”
  • Peer review resumes
  • Discussion of multimodal options for resumes
  • Cover Letters – Traditional and Video



  • Bring in a draft of your cover letter
  • Search for a creative resume that you might like to emulate
  • Depending on your experience, explore some beginner tutorials on the Adobe Creative Suite.  We’ll be working primarily with Illustrator next week. Here is one example.
