Understanding your audience jigsaw

3 students
30 mins

In this activity, students will work together in groups of three to explore a scenario. They will practice preparing a resume for a fictional student using three resources: a job description, a personal profile of a potential applicant, and a resume template.

The activity is designed as a jigsaw, which is interactive and holds students accountable for contributing to the work equally. At the end of the activity, the class will work together to develop a rough draft of a resume for the sample applicant.
