GENERAL TIPS
Your job application materials should have a clean, easy-to-read format. For the purpose of this assignment focus more on content than format.

Resumes
  • Highlight relevant experiences (job and other)
  • Be Concise - Make it easy to read
  • Use Action Verbs  (see vocabulary section)
Cover Letters
  • Write it to a specific company, know what they are looking for
  • Make an impression - have personality
  • Express why you are a good fit
  • Remember it's not about what they can do for you, but what you can do for them
  • Before writing try to answer these questions
  • Correct language usage matters

Phrasal Verbs
Phrasal verb is the name given to an English verb which is composed of two or three words. One verb is combined with a preposition (like on, in, under) or an adverb (like up, down, away). Sometimes a phrasal verb can have a meaning that is very different to the meaning of at least one of those two or three words separately
