    For this assignment, you are going to find a job advertisement online that you would potentially want to apply for someday. You’ll then create a custom résumé and cover letter for this specific job, and then fill out the Interview Research Worksheet for your chosen job.

    You will submit a link to the job advertisement, your custom résumé, your cover letter, and your completed Interview Research Worksheet to your instructor.

    NOTE: You can use your actual work and volunteer experience as you create your résumé and cover letter for this assignment, so you’ll be able to use them as starting points when applying for jobs in the “real world.” If you are still building your work work experience, complete this assignment for the job you want in the future.
