Today was the second day of our Applying for Jobs project. Students chose one of the seven positions that they wished to apply for. Then they got to work crafting their resumes and writing cover letters. The rule was that all of the information they listed must be 100% true. They listed the courses they have taken, their grades, their project experience, their test scores, etc. Of course, none of them are actually qualified to become a NASA chemist; that’s not the point. The goal of the project is to learn about the process of applying for jobs. And after today, the students are well on their way.
