Putting It All Together
This assignment has 3 parts. Be sure to check off each one so you know that you accomplished it. You will be creating a personal résumé in Microsoft Word, and a PowerPoint presentation, and then zipping these files with your Excel spreadsheet that you created for the Week 4 Project into a compressed folder (a .zip file) to upload to the Week 5 Project submission area.
Create your résumé for when you are about to graduate from your program of Psychology. Don’t limit yourself to experiences and achievements you have today; you may add experiences and achievements you expect to have by the time you graduate. Later, you can keep adding skills and experiences to your résumé as you complete classes, gain more job experience, or change jobs.
Tip: You learned about tables in Week 2. Tables are great for creating résumés. Most of the time borders are turned off on the tables after the résumé is created although sometimes a top or bottom border is turned on to separate categories. However, the easiest way to create your résumé is to use a Word résumé template.
Click on the link below, Week 5 Project Tips, for some visual aids on how to tackle this week’s project.
Part I: The Resume
Create your résumé based on the following criteria in Microsoft Word and save it as W5P_Resume_LastName.docx. Remember that the program will automatically add the extension of .docx.
Part II: The PowerPoint
Create a new PowerPoint presentation and save it with the file name of W5D_Presentation_LastName.pptx.
All slides should be formatted creatively and appropriately.
Part III: The Zip Folder
Create a new folder called W5P_LastName. Put your résumé Word file, your PowerPoint file, and your Excel file from Week 4 Project into this folder and “zip” the folder following directions below to upload one file as your Week 5 Project submission. In the Comments box, briefly share your experiences with completing this project.
This is a handy way to treat multiple files. Once uploaded, be sure to download and unzip your folder to make sure that it contains exactly what you want in it. Sometimes in a rush, students upload empty folders and lose one-fourth of their grade for the class. Don’t let this mistake happen to you!
