Self-Marketing

Part I

For this assignment, you should first complete the following tasks:

  • Initiate a focused job search using industry key words and document your results. Search using a job board of your choosing
  • Build a professional-quality resume or CV that offers a clear representation of you and your skills. Explore the CSU-Global Career Center for additional support. (SEE ATTACHED)
    • Note: You may fictionalize company names, reference information, contact information, or any other information that you feel may compromise your privacy, although the resume/CV should reflect your qualifications as accurately as possible.
  • Conduct a practice interview either on your own (using flash cards with prepared questions), with the help of a friend/family member, or with a professional in your field.

Part II

Next, develop a well-written paper that includes the following:

  • The results of your job search
  • Summary of what you learned in building a resume
  • An assessment of your experience in a practice interview, including what you learned that you can apply to a real life interview.

Deliverables

Submit your resume and paper as separate documents. Your paper should meet the following requirements:

  • Be 3-4 pages in length, excluding the title and references pages.
  • Cite three articles/material from credible sources to support the position you take.
