Job Application Materials


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

  • Highlight relevant experiences (job and other)
  • Be Concise - Make it easy to read (no more than 2 pages)
  • 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
