[SOLVED] Part A: Discussion (use apa citation), Part B: Comment on two posts(separately).
Im studying and need help with a Computer Science question to help me learn.
Part A::: For this discussion, you will be writing a professional profile. You will need to find a job posting that interests you and then write the professional profile section of your resume so that it clearly shows why you would be a good candidate for that position. Make sure you include strong nouns and verbs to describe yourself and the experiences and skills you possess or plan to possess when you actually apply for a position. You may use the job posting you identified in Module Four, or you can focus on a new career opportunity. Please use from one of the three below job postings:
- Application developer – https://www.higheredjobs.com/search/details.cfm?JobCode=177125862&Title=Application%20Developer
- Network administrator – https://www.higheredjobs.com/search/details.cfm?JobCode=177126150&Title=Local%20Area%20Network%2FSystem%20Administrator
- Computer and information systems manager – https://prestigestaffing.jobs.net/en-US/job/information-systems-manager/J3T0Z873VZ5B5HLX9P4
SNHU Career Advising, available through the MySNHU Student page, offers a wide variety of career support information. For this discussion, you will be focusing on the SNHU Career Resume Writing Guide. (An accessible text version of the guide is also available.)
The Resume Writing Guide breaks the resume down into five distinct sections. For your post, you will be focusing on Section 2: Professional Profile. After reading pages 911 of the guide, you should have a better understanding of what should be included in your profile, and you will have seen some examples of how it should be written.
Part B::: In your response posts, provide constructive feedback on other profiles. Consider suggestions for clearer understanding of values and interests, stronger verbs, and more details concerning accomplishments or skills. Response to the following two posts:
