In this assignment, you will read about, “skill gaps,” (the skills people have as opposed to the skills that employers need to fill available jobs), writing a resume and cover letter, find a job opening that looks interesting, and then write a resume and cover letter for that job. Start by reading the following scholarly articles in ProQuest and below. The readings explain how to write an effective resume and cover letter that includes your abilities to acquire new skills.

Read the case information about “skilling-up” below:

“Skill Up” to Land that Job”

News abounds about a “skill gap,” or the difference between the skills people have as opposed to the skills that employers need to fill available jobs. The job resource website Quintessential Careers offers this advice to help close an individual’s skill gap.

  1. Look at certification or technical training programs as ways to acquire new skills. Professional associations or community colleges are excellent resources for building competencies.
  2. Become an apprentice. Some professions such as electronics, plumbing, or machining offer paid apprenticeship programs.
  3. Volunteer at a nonprofit. It’s a great way to gain knowledge about how to use databases, build websites, and learn accounting procedures that you can transfer to a paying position.
  4. Freelance. Expand your skills on the Internet as a freelancer, a contractor, or a “micropreneur.”

Remember that old saying: Anything that’s worth having is worth fighting for. Be ready to fight to land that job.

Critical thinking and discussion: How can you leverage your current talents to earn money while you look for a job in your chosen field? Besides learning new skills at an unpaid position, what else can you gain from volunteering? Why is it important to constantly update your skills?

You should also submit a well-written summary that discusses the following three questions: How can you leverage your current talents to earn money while you look for a job in your chosen field? Besides learning new skills at an unpaid position, what else can you gain from volunteering? Why is it important to constantly update your skills? Your essay should include an introduction and a conclusion, and also make use of the Background Info, utilizing correct citation and reference style.

 

The following is an additional question. A paragraph is fine.

You have received an email from a graduating student, the son or daughter of an acquaintance. This young person wants advice: How does he or she get a job like yours?

The student asks, “What do I have to do? What is the most important advice you can give me? Was there an element of luck in your career choice, and your success? If so, can you explain to me what it was?” 

Compose the two or three paragraph reply. Be clear, concise, logical and effective. You are free to advise the student to either pursue your career, or to avoid it. Set these paragraphs off in quotation marks.

Following your reply, explain exactly you think it is effective. As before, you should make full use of the module sources, providing citations and references as necessary.
