Please respond to one classmate here: Lohn

  • Discuss your experiences as you worked through that activity.
    • I could not work through the activity as it only asked me three questions and told me I had mastered the exercise. Reading through the posts, someone else also experienced the same issue. If anyone has insight, I would greatly appreciate it.
  • Describe the question in the activity for which you felt least prepared and explain why it was difficult for you 
    • I did not feel there was any question that I was least prepared for during the activity. However, I did have to stop and think about the question referencing action words and whether we should begin the sentences with those words. I must admit it was not something I had given much thought to. I have a resume completed and ready to insert the last of my education after the BSN program. I went back into my resume and looked for those descriptions and noticed some sections could benefit from using them.
  • Describe the most important takeaway from the experience.
    • My most important takeaway from this experience is that there is always an improvement for things I felt were up to and beyond standards.
  • Detail how you will use what you learned in this unit and the Active Verbs activity to promote yourself in your cover letter, resume, and responses to interview questions.
    • I will use the knowledge of this activity to use more descriptive and attention-grabbing words on my cover letter and resume.
    • The main focus of the resume is to touch on the experiences that are relevant to the position I will be applying for after graduation.  As an adult learner with many years of experience behind me, I will need to make sure that my resume is concise and only use experiences that relate to the position I am seeking (APA, n.d.)
