At the end of this week’s discussion about resume revision, please write a mini-SWOC analysis of how things went for you. As usual, organize your analysis with the SWOC headings–Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Challenges.

Here are four questions to guide your analysis:

  • What positive qualities did your resume have as you began the process of updating?
  • What weakness did you notice on your own or after reviewing material in the folder “Readings and resources for resume upgrades” at the top of our Week 4 Module?
  • What opportunities did your teammates highlight for you as you worked to update and improve your resume?
  • What challenges have you encountered in this process, from inside yourself or from the outside?

Aim for about a page in length, including your memo heading. 

Please submit your analysis here. Continue to practice a Plain Language layout–with bold section headings and with paragraph breaks to “chunk” your analysis into meaningful units within sections.

I’m looking forward to reading your SWOC analysis as a preview to reading your new version of your resume!
