Resume and Cover Letter
For both the resume and cover letter, you’ll start by finding a job posting (e.g., on Indeed) that: • requires a college degree in your field, is of interest to you,
and has an adequate description of requirements / skills required to allow customization.
(Note that many employment agency or government job postings do not meet thisstandard.)
For these assignments Follow the format of examples in the book (Figures 13.11 through 13.14 for resume, or Figures 13.16 and 13.17 for cover letter).
