Activity 6a – RESUMES(Assigned as of Monday, December 3 – Due Friday, DECEMBER 7)

Resumes are often your first opportunity to create an impression on a potential employer. Before we start creating our own (or editing and uploading one you may already have) we want to see what is out there. Take a few minutes and Google “resumes” and see what you can find. Email a PDF or link to one that you find particularly interesting to mfollett@sd35.bc.ca with the subject “RESUME I LIKE” so I can find it and so we can include in our next activity.
