Write a memo addressed to a prospective supervisor to introduce yourself. Your memo should have four headings:
- Education— including goals and accomplishments.
- Job Information—where you have worked and your responsibilities.
- Community Service—volunteer work, church work, youth groups.
- Writing Experience—your strengths and weaknesses as a writer, the types of writing you have done, your knowledge of and experience in writing e-communications, and the audiences for whom you have written.
