Looking for appropriate career options requires you to engage in a variety of activities, including performing a self-assessment, networking, and searching for the correct job situation. Your goal: to be offered an interview with a targeted employer.

For many IT positions, employers will include technical interview questions or a separate technical interview to determine a candidate’s strengths and level of knowledge.

Imagine a job interview with someone in one of the companies you have targeted. Write a description of three or four ways that you would prepare for the interview. Include some tough questions that you expect to be asked and explain how you would handle them.

To be invited for a job interview, you have to demonstrate that there is a good “fit” between the organization’s needs and your qualifications. You’ve performed part of this by creating a resume tailored to the specific requirements of your targeted employer and position.

For this task you will create a cover letter that introduces you to your prospective employer, outlines your skills, how they align with the requirements of the targeted position and how they add value to the company. You’ll then submit your cover letter and resume using the Assignment submission process required by the targeted employer.

Follow these steps for each of the 2–3 prospective positions and employers that you identified in the previous unit:

Draft a cover letter (no more than one page) to convey your core message, your career objectives, and how your knowledge, education, skills, and general background enable you to make a significant contribution to assist with their business needs. Refer to elements in your portfolio to support your case. In addition, take note of key words within the job listing of the prospective employer and work to include these in your cover letter.
