2. Analysis
The students will be watching a video presentation (Spencer, Linda)How to Write a Great
Resume and Cover Letter. . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAthQKLhBTs. After
playing the video, the students write down important points they got. Allow them to jot
down these points in their notebooks. Give them a minute to do this. Three to five
students will be randomly selected to share their insights to the class.

resume.

The students will be sharing their thought on how writing a good resume can create an impression
to the employers. They will then discuss importance and give qualities of a good resume.

IV. ASSESSMENT (PERFORMANCE TASK)


PRACTICE
A.
1. Students will be provided sample resumes to review. One comes from a high school graduate
with little motivation, job experience or sense of professionalism. The other is from a sharp
student who graduated from a state university and has been active acquiring several skill sets.
2. Go over both resumes as a class. First, have students spend a few minutes writing down errors
and needed improvements in the first resume.
3. Next, go over the second resume. Compare and contrast the two resumes, explaining why the
second student’s is better and writing these aspects and reasons on the board or chart paper.
Students also can suggest improvements the second student could have made.
4. You may want to note that there is no single best way to structure a resume. Additional sections
that could have been included in the samples are Computer Skills, Honors and Awards, and
School Activities. Ultimately, the resume should be tailored to the specific job for which one is
applying.

Here are some points to cover when reviewing the sample resumes.
Sample missteps in the first resume:
a. Unprofessional, cutesy email address.
b. The Statement of Objective and Summary are unprofessional and not workplace-relevant.
Photography might be a skill for her, but she has not emphasized how she has used this skill
professionally.
c. Time availability should not be included on a resume.
d. There are several typos.
e. Uses unprofessional wording (e.g., "awesome," "cool," "cute," "pics"), as well as inappropriate
clipart and exclamation points, which have no place in a resume.
f. No date is listed for her high school diploma; there is no description of coursework that might
be relevant to the workplace.
g. Her work history isn’t in order (jobs should be listed in reverse chronological order), and she
included a questionable volunteer experience (cupcake tester) under Work Experience.
h. Her descriptions of past job duties fail to emphasize skills gained (e.g., "flip burgers and fill
condiment containers"), and also reflect negatively on her customer service skills (e.g., "deal
with annoying customer requests").
i. Includes information that doesn’t pertain to job skills (hobbies should only be listed if they are
highly related to the job for which one is applying) (ex. Eye color, height, religion)

Sample good qualities in the second resume:


a. Based on the professionally stated objective, there are listed skills that are relevant to his
chosen career field.
b. Had no spelling errors or inappropriate/unprofessional wording.
c. Arranged his work history in reverse chronological order.
d. Described past job duties in a way that emphasizes his skills and leadership qualities.

The students will be provided with a sample of a resume for critique. They are needed to
highlight the areas for improvement and the strong points of the resume. They will then rewrite
the sample resume in a separate sheet of paper.

V. ASSIGNMENT
The students will create their own resume and encode it directly on a computer. If ever the
students would have access to a computer, remind them of the following format in creating a
good resume:
Resume fonts & sizes:
a. The most common font to use is Times New Roman, in black and size 12 points.
b. Other serif fonts (with tails) to consider that are easy to read include: Georgie, Bell MT,
Goudy Old Style, Garamond.
c. Popular sans serif (no tails) fonts include: Arial, Tahoma, Century Gothic and Lucida
Sans.
