Research and explain best practices for resume and cover letter writing
After years of hard work, you are finally graduating from college. You are very excited and eager to start a new career in your field of study. Prior to starting your job search, you need to develop a job search plan. Write a research paper of 5-7 body pages using APA style to outline a job search plan that thoroughly addresses the following items:
Develop a professional career goals statement that is suitable for use on your resume. Explain the rationale underlying development of this statement, and describe how you expect it will be perceived by prospective employers.
Prepare an in-depth analysis of how your skills, experiences, and education match the type of jobs for which you will be applying.
Identify at least 3 jobs for which you will be applying, and discuss what you will need to apply for these jobs. For instance, will the employers require each perspective applicant to fill out a job application prior to the interview, or do they only need to submit a resume and cover letter?
Research and analyze 3 different companies where you are planning to apply for the types of jobs listed above. Discuss your findings, and assess how your skills, experience, and education would allow you to contribute to the attainment of each company’s mission.
Research and discuss best practices for resume and cover letter writing, and explain how you will incorporate these into your job search strategy.
Integrate research leveraging at least 4 different scholarly sources (e.g., research journals) from the AIU Online Cybrary.
