---------------------------------------- Assessment------------------------------------

Very good job application package. Each component (analysis of the want-ad, cover letter, résumé, and follow-up) is well organized and clearly developed.

Grade: 95

 [RJS1]The student started his analysis of the job posting here on the next page. You will note the explanation of how the analysis is organized.

 [RJS2] of the requirements for this job. The next step is to integrate all these details into the cover letter.

 [RJS3]Give the date you accessed the website or when the job announcement was posted.

 [RJS4] agreement error: See QA-Compact (p. 163). Or, study Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL) Grammar Handbook: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/599/01/

 [RJS5]Be explicit when asking for an interview.

 [RJS6]The cover letter effectively reviews how you qualify for the job criteria mentioned in the position description, but you could make a more specific request for an interview.

 [RJS7]Rather than say what you're responsible for, tell the reader what you actually did. For example, start sentences with stronger verbs, such as "maintain", "organize", or "coordinate."

 [RJS8]Include dates - at least the years you took the training.

 [RJS9]Include dates - at least the year.

 [RJS10]Good follow-up letter. It effectively reinforces your eagerness for the job and your strengths. However, one way to make the follow-up letter more effective is to write about something you hadn't mentioned before, perhaps something you forgot to say during the interview. That prompts the reader to remember the interview, and you in particular.

 [RJS11]Out of place. The complementary close should precede your name.
