You have been asked to be on a search committee. And, you just happen to have begun the reading for the module on resumes and job applications.

After carefully reviewing the applicants’ documents, return to the discussion. Use the following questions to structure your discussion with the other members of the search committee.

1. Of these three candidates, who do you think should be first in line for an interview? Second? Third? Why?

2. What specific revisions would make each candidates’ resume and cover letter more effective?

3. For all candidates, are there stages in the communication process that you think the candidate should have paid more attention to? What are they? What would you suggest the candidate do when applying for a job the next time?
