Work for the week of October 6
Go to the What Would You Propose? Discussion in Canvas, and post two replies: your original reply to one scenario in the bulleted list, and your reply to one classmate in your group.
Examine the Example Proposal for Job Application Materials to see the kind of information to include in your proposal. The example is an extensive proposal that would earn an A. The proposal is worth 10 points of your grade for Project 3. Here are some related tips:
Be sure that you include all the required sections, as explained in the proposal instructions.
- Document outside resources that you consult as you research job application materials for your field. You do not need to document conversations or the class texts; but do note any other resources (e.g., books, websites) you consult.

Submit your proposal by 11:59 PM on Monday, October 12. Early submission is recommended if you are thinking of a job application project that might be unusual. Follow the submission instructions to turn in your work.
Watch for feedback on your proposal late next week. I have never had to turn a proposal down, but I do ask for changes occasionally. You are responsible for the suggestions included in the feedback.
If you have any questions about the assignments, post them in the Questions about Projects 3 Discussion in Canvas.
