In-class activities for resume/cover letter writing: 

Bring in guest presenters to cover these topics: Hiring Manager at a local company, a certified resume writer, university professional, etc.

 Use a computer lab: Utilize class time to work on resumes and cover letters rather than having the students work on the document at home.

  Peer Critiques are NOT helpful – Have a resume expert review the documents either during the lab time or through email correspondence.

Job Description Activity – Have example resumes given to the students, then find a job posting online. Have the students choose the resume that is most tailored.
