Applying for jobs can be a time-consuming, nerve-racking venture even for the experienced professional. It can be especially daunting for recent graduates who are entering the workforce for the very first time. The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL), well known for its helpful writing resources, has created this practical guide to assist with Job Search Writing. Readers will find four sections to explore: Preparing an Application, Job Search Letters, Resumes and Vitas, and Video Resumes. This last section may be of special interest as it discusses the use of video aids for job applications, from planning to filming to editing footage. Readers interested in a more traditional application may appreciate the ample collection of Model Letters or a helpful discussion on resume page length among other great resources.
