Go Deeper and Broader: Reflective Process of Résumé Generating
Abstract: The conversation about creating a résumé rarely extends beyond instrumental "get-the-job" résumé writing. This experiential learning project of generating a résumé takes a different approach by engaging students in a course-long activity based on reflection, research, and abstraction. This project equips students with all résumé 's, job interview's, and personal professional growth plan's essential components: (1) building blocks of résumé, (2) factual examples for answering interview questions via storytelling, (3) questions for the interview, (4) short-term plan for acquisition of necessary skills, knowledge, and capabilities, and (5) long-term plan for acquisition of necessary skills, knowledge, and capabilities. This project introduces students to a process that they can use throughout their academic and professional careers to assess their competitive professional posture and remain marketable.
