CWEST Job Search Resources (Résumés, Applications, and Letters)
Welcome to the Community Writing and Education Station (CWEST) resource area for writing job search materials. This CWEST resource provides information about a number of job search documents WorkOne Express staff members have identified as important. These resources differ from other Purdue OWL job search documents because they are specifically designed for working class positions. Here you will find information on the following:
- Reading and using job ads
- Filling out job applications
- Writing résumés
- Writing cover letters
- Writing follow up and thank you letters
- Sample documents (Job ads, résumés, cover letters, follow up and thank you letters).
We also provide suggestions for further job search document resources on the Purdue OWL.
Instructors/Administrators: Download the CWEST job search document materials flier here and post it around your center to help raise awareness of these resources.
