Name: ______________________________ Date: ____________________ English IV Honors Beowulf Cover letter and résumé assignment Scenario: Beowulf, the greatest known warrior in the land of the Geats (and Anglo-Saxon England, for that matter) has run into a problem: boredom. Upon returning to his homeland and following the great celebration in honor of his victory over Grendel and his overbearing (not to mention quite beastly) mother, things begin to quiet down. In fact, Beowulf finds himself with nothing to do! With no monsters to kill and no adventures to be had, he cannot find anything to fill his spare time. One day, Beowulf has an idea. Instead of lying around on his hay mattress all day, he decides to send his résumé out to all of the kings and lords of the land to make them aware of his services. There’s only one problem; Beowulf does not know how to write a résumé, Therefore, he has come to YOU, the most educated person in the kingdom to compose his résumé for him! It is now up to YOU to give Beowulf a fair chance at employment by translating all of his attributions into a well-written, true to character résumé! Directions: Create a résumé based on Beowulf’s actions throughout the poem. Additionally, you may choose to include any goals/actions/experiences that you believe Beowulf may have during the time between the first and second to last sections of the poem. Beowulf’s résumé must contain the following information: 1. Objective: This is typically one sentence that states the goal of the applicant 2. Education: Lists the institutions that the individual has attended and any special educational training or skills he may have received. List most recent first. 3. Professional skills: Any specific skills that the applicant has gained either through working or that would aid in his/her application to a future employment opportunity should be listed here. 4. Work experience: Specifies the last 2 or 3 jobs that the applicant has had. (Note: This should be pretty well established for Beowulf.) List most recent first. 5. Reference: This section lists people who would be willing to testify to the character of the applicant, hopefully in a positive manner. This can sometimes be former employees, co-workers, or individuals who have known the applicant for some time. Be creative! Categories that are not specifically addressed within the text are to be filled in by you with wit and imagination. This assignment is worth a total of 100 points.
