5-2: Cover Letters
Learners review the job postings in the paper or on http://www.jobsnorth.ca and choose a job they would like to apply for. They review the sample cover letter and then use the template to write their own cover letter for the job they chose.
You should have learners review the research section about functional and chronological resumes before they write their resume.
Learners develop a chronological or functional resume. There are examples of both of these resumes on the handouts. Learners can also research examples on the Internet. Several good websites are given.
