Fixing Resume and Career Plans ---Look at him. I’m not the only one happy about editing! When you see the pencil…write what you see down!

For those of you who were mysteriously absent yesterday… You need to find a job in one of my job packets, or think of a job that you would like to do within the next year (can’t be a doctor by next year!). You can also think of a school you’d like to go to next year. Then, think about what the perfect candidate for that job or school would be like. Your response should be a 5 – 7 sentence paragraph.

Making your resume attractive I’m putting you in groups for this! It’s editing time, and often we cannot see where our writing could be improved. You each have a list of what I’m looking for in a resume. Look over each other’s and then write comments on it. Then, write a paragraph (5-7 sentences) reflection about how you feel about the changes you offered to others and the changes that were offered to you.
