Complete the on-line readings as assigned below:
Weekly assignments will be given in class. Unless otherwise assigned, they
will be due in class the following week. Late assignments will not be accepted.
You will have your choice of final projects for the class. Below is a brief
description of each choice with suggestions for materials to include. However,
each portfolio or job search packet should be individualized to your own
needs. Check with the instructor about pieces you would like to include
in your packet.
Draft Portfolio - For students in drafting, graphic arts, printing, technical
Mini-Portfolio: A presentation piece,
fit for mailing, that includes 5-8 reduced pieces (drawings, plans, posters,
photographs, etc.) with a resume and introductory letter. The Mini-Portfolio
should be letter-size or smaller. A cover is optional, but a nice touch.
Presentation: If you already have,
or would like to do, a full-size portfolio, another option is a formal
presentation to the class or to the instructor. The presentations will
be 10 minutes long. (You will probably need 15 - 20 pieces.)
Job Search Packet - For general or technical students without samples of
Job Search Campaign Plan: A packet
of job search materials, together with a schedule for activities and sample
forms for collected employer data. The packet will be an overall tool to
organize an individualized job search. Job search materials should include
resume, personal data sheet (e.g., a practice application), reference list,
transcripts, employer hit list, etc.
Career Portfolio: If you really want
to be creative, you may organize a collection of job search materials along
with descriptions/photos/responses (from instructors/employers/clients)
of your accomplishments. These materials should stress strengths and skills.
For example, in your cover letter, you may refer to a research project
you completed. Following the letter, you may include a final statistical
report of the project (perhaps submitted for another class.)
