Day 6 – 9.15 – Cover Letters

September 15, 2014 by Brian Harmon

Freewrite:

Based on your search for creative resume examples and what you might already know about video cover letters, write a blog post that explores the relative applicability/practicality of a more creative approach to your employment project.  In other words, can you imagine a situation where you would consider deploying a non-traditional approach to your job search? Be specific about why/why not.

 

Discussion:

  • ABCs of Cover Letters
  • Peer Review of Cover Letters
  • Remixing the Cover Letter (group work)

  • (If time…practice with templates in Illustrator)

 

Homework:

  • Bring an advertisement or movie poster (digital) that catches your eye and read through the instructions and links on THIS page.
  • Bring your flash drive.

 

Notes:

  • NO CLASS NEXT MONDAY.
  • Employment Project Due Date CHANGED to 9.22.
