Allow your students to learn from the experience and findings of other groups by having them share the results of group work with the rest of the class. They can share through group oral presentations, poster presentations and group reports. If you use group writing, you can ask students to provide feedback on the reports of other groups, based on the specified marking criteria.
Presentations and reports might be about the key issues and findings associated with the group task or research project, or the processes of group work—what worked, what didn’t work, and how the group could improve next time—or they might involve a combination of the two.
Summing up, the presentation or cover letter is the presentation that you make from yourself before the company who is offering the job position, and if it is well written, in both contents and aesthetics, it might open the doors of the working market pretty fast.
The presentation or cover letter, must be presented in an impeccable appearance, in both orthographic and type and letter, including the type of paper used. It would be better if you do not write more than a page or sheet of paper.
The following is a general structure to follow for the body of a critical paper. Be sure to include a suitable introduction and conclusion, as described in the previous section, How to Write a Whole Composition.
Adapt it to specific assignments as appropriate.
You cannot do only one model of presentation letter for different positions and / or companies, because they are rapidly intercepted and eliminated by the human resources departments, because they consider that the person is not showing any sign of interest towards the company he or she is applying to work at.
The take home point here is that the scientific format helps to insure that at whatever level a person reads your paper (beyond title skimming), they will likely get the key results and conclusions.
• Personal information: name and last name, postal address, phone and e – mail address.
• Company information: name and charge of the person that we are addressing ourselves to, name and address of the company.
• Greetings: Dear Mr. (Miss, Madame, etc.)
• The body of the presentation letter must not exceed the four paragraphs limit:
o Point out to what position we are applying for.
o Indicate the reasons for which we are applying; among them, we must highlight why we are applying precisely to that company.
o Mention which qualifications we have to apply to that position.
o Indicate the most important aspects of our working and formation experience, which must be related to the working position.
o Highlight what you are offering to the company, in a brief and concise way.
o Refer to the fact that you are enclosing your curriculum.
o Apply for a job interview, pointing out you telephone number and / or contact e – mail address.
o Thank the company for reading your presentation or cover letter and considering your petition, say good bye.
Writing a group report requires effective organisation, time management and communication skills. Students often find report writing on their own challenging, and group writing can be even more intimidating if students are not given some guidelines as to how to approach it. Without guidelines, one or two students in a group often end up writing the group report, and this can create workload issues, and resentment when marks are distributed.
A well written presentation letter means telling the employer, in a few words, who we are and why we are interested in working with him or her; on the other hand, a cover letter poorly written will not show the employer anything interesting about us or about our expectations, despite we might be the perfect fit for all the requirements of the job position’s profile.
This option can result in the writer taking on too much of the workload. It may be suitable, however, if the non-writing members of the group have been given responsibility for other major tasks. The advantages include:
The obvious disadvantage is that students, particularly those who could improve their writing skills, do not get the opportunity to practise their writing. In addition, the report does not benefit from the diverse ideas and experience of the group, and doesn’t prepare students for a team presentation if one is required.
When we talk about not knowing how to do it, we mean that we do not know that before reading our curriculum, what the responsible staff of the human resources offices read is the presentation or cover letter, and that is through it that they decide whether to read or not the curriculum.
