  1. 4B – HSD:R should be titled HIGH SCHOOL DRAFT PLAN: REFLECTIONS
    • The score assigned on the report given score is correct for 4B
  2. 5B – OCC:R should be titled OCCUPATION EXPLORATIONS: REFLECTIONS
    • The score assigned on the report given score is correct for 5B

My sincere apologies for the error. Please contact me at mfollett@sd35.bc.ca if you need any clarification.

Activity 9B – COVER LETTER: PEER REVIEW Reflection (Due February 19)

In your Learning Log, create a dated entry with the following title: COVER LETTER: PEER REVIEW – What Did I Learn? and reflect on what you learned through the editing of your and your peers’ cover letters. What edits did you need to make to your own? What errors were common in other letters? What impact (if any) did editing your peers’ letters have on you or your cover letter? How did the feedback process go as you shared ideas?

Activity 9A – Cover Letter: Peer review & Edit (Due February 19)

Having discussed some of the possible “gate keeper” practices as they relate to Cover Letters, edit your Cover Letter (if you feel you need to again) and print out a copy. Trade with a partner and with a coloured pen or pencil (NOT BLACK OR BLUE) highlight and tag any element of their Cover Letter that would keep them out of the “interview pool”. Print your name in the same colour on the resume and trade back. Trade with other partners (ensuring different colour pens/pencils for each edit) until no more can be found. Edit your electronic cover letter, print it out again, staple both copies and hand-in to Mr. Follett.

Remember – The edited version will be assessed so you want to be sure your partners are thorough. Your edits on your peers will be as well so be thorough when editing for your partners.

In your Learning Log, create a dated entry with the following title: Occupations: Cover Letters – What Did I Learn? reflect on what you learned about yourself in creating as you created a cover letter in MyBlueprint. What information did you need to gather? Was this your first cover letter? What challenges did you find in writing the letter?  Did creating a cover letter create any or resolve any concerns?

activity 7 – cover letters (Due January 23)

Now that you have generated some post-secondary plans and a resume, it is time to create a COVER LETTER to use in applying for a particular job. This MUST be tailored either for a part-time job (to pay for your post-secondary plans) or a full-time job (assuming you have completed your post-secondary plans and are applying for a related job). You need to tailor your letter for a job posting from the career opportunities available in www.myblueprint.ca and ***submit the link to that job posting at the same time.

Click on WORK>COVER LETTERS and create a new cover letter called “Cover Letter – ‘company name you’re applying for’. Please enter your data into the cover letter sections of MyBlueprint.ca. This will turn your information into a cover letter you can use, or export to Microsoft Word for editing later if you want. If you already have a cover letter, you are welcome to simply enter the data you have into MyBlueprint rather than working from scratch, but as this will also be part of your CLC portfolio in 11/12, you need to have it in MyBlueprint.

SPELLING, GRAMMAR AND PUNCTUATION COUNTS! We will be using a “gate-keeper” process as discussed in class as part of your cover-letter assessment.

When you have completed your COVER LETTER in www.mybluprint.ca,
1) use the PREVIEW>EXPORT>EMAIL links as shown in class and email me a PDF version of each at mfollett@sd35.bc.ca and then
2) click turn-in on this assignment and attach the link for the job posting you found in MyBlueprint.ca (or elsewhere online if you want to look at Monster.ca or another resource).

This will be part of the final portfolio you will present to your parents outlining some of your plans for after secondary school.

Activity 6C – Resume reflection (Due January 23)

In your Learning Log, create a dated entry with the following title: Occupations: Resumes – What Did I Learn? reflect on what you learned about yourself in creating as you created a draft resume in MyBlueprint. What information did you need to gather? What actions do you need to take to expand your resume?  Did creating a draft resume create any or resolve any concerns?

Activity 6B – Resumes (Due January 23)

Now that you have generated some occupation ideas,  it is time to create a RESUME (pronounced “re-su-may”) to use in applying for a job to help pay for them. This can be tailored either for a part-time job to pay for your post-secondary plans or a full-time job assuming you have completed you career goals. You can create a fictional company you are applying for or use a job posting from the career opportunities available in www.myblueprint.ca. (I would recommend tailoring it to a summer job you’re interested in applying to now to make it relevant.)

Click on WORK>RESUMES and create a new resume called RESUME DRAFT. Please enter your data into the various sections of MyBlueprint.ca which will turn your information into a resume you can use, or export to Microsoft Word for editing later if you want to turn it into something similar to the examples you have submitted in 6A. If you already have a resume, you are welcome to simply enter the data you have into MyBlueprint rather than working from scratch, but as this will also be part of your CLC portfolio in 11/12, you need to have it in MyBlueprint.

SPELLING, GRAMMAR AND PUNCTUATION COUNTS! We will be using a “gate-keeper” process as discussed in class as part of your resume assessment.

When you have completed your RESUME in www.mybluprint.ca, use the PREVIEW>EXPORT>EMAIL links as shown in class and email me a PDF version of each at mfollett@sd35.bc.ca, then click turn-in on this assignment and tell me it is completed when you are done. This will be part of the final portfolio you will present to your parents outlining some of your plans for after secondary school.

Resumes are often your first opportunity to create an impression on a potential employer.
