Ling 305W—Resume & Cover Letter Unit Analyzing Resumes Assignment: For this assignment, you will analyze two resumes for Design, Organization, Content, Style, and Community Values (DOCS). You will need to bring a resume of an individual who is currently working in a field related to your major. This may not be a resume from the internet or from a book. You need to provide an original document from a person that you personally contacted or with whom you are acquainted. You will need to bring two (2) copies of the document. Next, you will analyze the resume that you provided, and you will analyze a resume you receive from a classmate. Discuss these resumes using DOCS. For the analysis of two resumes: 1. Introduce your topic in a way that provides a bridge between your audience and yourself. Your audience is your instructor and classmates. You need to state the reason for the assignment, introduce authors of both resumes, determine their audiences, and describe the community values that their audiences might have. 2. Select one resume and analyze it in detail with respect to DOCS. Then, look at the second resume and discuss its DOCS by comparing/contrasting it with the first resume. When you compare both resumes, you need to provide explanations why they would differ or be similar (based on audience expectations and community values). Attach copies of both resumes to the back of your analysis. 3. Summarize your findings and make general statements about resume as a genre.

First, I examined April Moo’s resume from the field of social work in detail. Second, I evaluated Isabel P. Richter’s resume from the field of education. The audience for April’s resume are non-profit organizations and agencies. Isabel addresses her resume to medical centers and colleges and universities. The community values shared by both April and Isabel’s audiences may include shared life experiences, shared understanding of language, shared cultural values, and shared disciplinary values. Upon analyzing these two resumes, I found the differences and similarities in DOCS. Resume 1 DESIGN • Headings: April used headings to help her audience see the entire outline of the resume and navigate to a specific information. • Bullet points: The author used bullet points to emphasize her main points. Also, using bullet points allows authors to save valuable space to cover enough relevant experiences and information. ORGANIZATION • Division/Classification: The resume is divided into six sections such as “Education,” “Relevant Skills,” and “Work Experience.” This was used to show April’s audience the relevant information contained under each division. Last name 2 • Listing: The important dates are listed in chronological order beginning with the most recent ones. CONTENT • Education: April presents her education at the beginning of her resume because she thinks it is the most important part of the resume. • Relevant Skills: The author provides relevant skills after Education to showcase to her audience her key capabilities and strengths. STYLE • Power Verbs: April uses power verbs such as organize, raise, assist, and counsel to demonstrate her strengths and highlight her qualifications for the position. • Use of Acronyms: The author uses acronyms such as KOSD, UWSD, KPBS, and IRC and defines what they represent. The use of acronyms makes it unnecessary to keep typing long names. VALUES • Shared Disciplinary Values: April addresses her skills in communication and leadership and work experiences with non-profit organizations and agencies as a case worker, youth coordinator, and interpreter. She has the values of social work that qualify her for a professional position. • Shared Cultural Values: The author has a high level of community involvement and education. April has been the cofounder of many clubs and has been involved in local community services such as KPBS and the International Rescue Committee Peacemakers Club, which addresses refugee life experiences and issues in Myanmar, her homeland. Last name 3 Resume 2 DESIGN • Similarities: April and Isabel both use bullet points and headings in their resumes. • Differences: The headings of April’s resume are bolded and underlined; whereas, the headings of Isabel’s resume are just bolded. ORGANIZATION • Similarities: The authors use division/classification and listing in their resumes. • Differences: Isabel organized her resume different from April’s. April presents her education at the beginning of her resume. In contrast, Isabel presents her education at the end of her resume. CONTENT • Similarities: Both resumes include education and work experiences, both of which are relevant information to cover in a resume. • Differences: April’s resume contained additional information about her relevant skills, internship, honors and awards, and local community services. Isabel’s resume only covers information about her experiences and education/training. STYLE • Similarities: Both authors use power verbs to emphasize their strengths and capabilities, and also acronyms. Examples of power verbs used in Isabel’s resume are facilitate, develop, managed, reconciled, and inserted. Isabel also used acronyms such as SDSU, ABC Children Center, and CA Early Childhood Mental Health. • Differences: Isabel did not define the acronyms because she might have assumed that audiences may know the acronyms due to the fact that they are widely used. Last name 4 VALUES • Similarities: Both authors have shared disciplinary values and shared life experiences because of their education and work experiences. • Differences: April has more shared cultural values than Isabel because April has a higher level of community involvement from volunteering and interning. After analyzing both resumes from the two different practitioners, I believe the authors did an excellent job in presenting relevant information about their education and work experiences that prospective employers typically seek. However, there are areas of improvements that both authors could potentially make. For example, April’s education was not placed in chronological order and she could have used more power verbs to demonstrate her strengths and capabilities. Isabel’s resume is too long, and it arguable contains too much information about her work experiences. Instead, she could have mentioned a few key points in her Experience section. For example, in one part of her Experience section, she has more than fifteen bullet points. I prefer April’s resume because it is easier on the eyes thus making it more navigable for readers and of course, potential employers.

I first examined Carolina Morales Cabrera’s resume, which so is seen to be of the interest in the field of detective works. I also had the chance to work on Antony Elias Califa’s resume who is greatly involved in the geographical field.
