Week 11: Applying for Jobs

Quinn WarnickWeekly Updates

During Week 11, we’ll continue our discussion about the job application process, focusing on cover letters. Before you come to class, please review Allison Doyle’s “How to Write a Cover Letter” (we covered this in Week 4), and read “A simple how-to for writing that killer cover letter,” by Anna Helhoski.

Your portfolio task for Week 11 is to draft an “About Me” page for your website. Depending on how you’ve structured your site, you may also need to create a “Welcome” page. Please be ready to show me an early draft of your site (which should also include an HTML version of your résumé) during class.

If you need help any with your site, come see me during office hours (T 2–5, W 9–12) or email me.
