Readings for the week of March 1

Work for the week of March 1

  • Go to the What Would You Propose? Discussion in Canvas, and post your responses.

  • Examine the Example Proposal for Job Application Materials to see the kind of information to include in your proposal. The example is an extensive proposal that would earn an A. The proposal is worth 50 points of your grade for Project 3. Here are some related tips:

    • Be sure that you include all the required sections, as explained in the proposal instructions.

    • Document outside resources that you consult as you research job application materials for your field. You do not need to document conversations or the class texts; but do note any other resources (e.g., books, websites) you consult. You can use whatever documentation format you are most familiar with. Here are some tools if you are unsure what to use:
  • Submit your proposal by 11:59 PM on Monday, March 14. Early submission is recommended if you are thinking of a job application project that might be unusual. Follow the submission instructions to turn in your work. The grace period for the proposal ends at 11:59 PM on Monday, March 21.

  • Watch for feedback after you turn in your proposal. I have never had to turn a proposal down, but I do ask for changes occasionally. You are responsible for the suggestions included in the feedback.
