Exercise for Lesson 10: Resumes & Cover Letters

This exercise is relatively simpler than the other exercises which we’ve had throughout this class. Because the most practical and helpful exercise for this lesson is to write your own resume and cover letter, this is what we’re going to be doing. Below are more detailed instructions.


Write a cover letter and resume for yourself. Let’s say that you’re going to submit it to your dream company and that this resume will get you your dream job. Remember the guidelines that we set for writing cover letters and resumes in the previous lesson. Below are examples to help you through this exercise.


Cover Letter:

June 4th 2014

Dearest Mr. Johns,

You’ll find attached to this letter my resume and my portfolio. I heard about your company through my friend Elena Leonards who used to work in your Marketing Department. She informed me that there might be an opening for someone with my social media expertise.

I’m a freelance blogger/SEO expert and have been working for 5 years, now. Among my clients have been prominent companies like Gatorade and Starbucks. I am now seeking regular, corporate employment as an online marketer because I find that freelance jobs are taxing and are also very unpredictable. I hope that you find my attached portfolio to your liking; I’ve included other website statistics/marketing work that I’ve done for other corporations.

I would love to hear back from you once you’re able to review my resume and body of work. Kindly let me know by giving me a call or sending me a message at 0987-5643-2937. You can also reach me via e-mail at diondra@gmail.com. If I still don’t have word by Friday next week, please don’t be surprised if  I give your office a call.

 Respectfully yours,

Diondra Norrell
