Procedure

First, you need to explain about resumes and what students should include in a resume. They need to include the specific skills they have that would help them obtain the job they would like to pursue.

After that, students need to do some research on the Internet about the occupation they would like to pursue. They need to find out the educational requirements and job requirements (what they would do in the job). They also need to think about their skills to see if they have the skills to do the job they might like. It's important to think about their future occupation and see if they would have the opportunity to obtain the job. Finally, they are ready to write their resume. They need to make sure their name and contact information is at the top. Then, they should include any skills they have that relate to the job they want to pursue. After that, they need to list any educational courses and experiences they have had that would relate to the occupation they plan to seek. When they have completed their list, they need to write a resume they think would help them get the job they would like.

Grading

You can grade the students on the research and how well they wrote their resumes for the job they want to seek.
