Developing a strong resume and cover letter

The purpose of this assignment is to present yourself professionally for employment in the field of special education through the development of a resume and cover letter. A cover letter serves as the specific introduction to a resume for each separate recipient, while the resume contains consistent, professional information regarding your professional background, education, and experience, no matter the recipient. A resume should be updated often as information changes or is added.


Using these sources as a guide:
