Conclusions

This chapter emphasizes the persuasive job that applicants take on when preparing their cover letters and résumés. Therefore, the rhetorical considerations of purpose, audience, and arrangement are paramount. In addition, applicants must take political considerations into account at several points in the job search process. Finally, applicants should not be afraid to stand by their ethical constraints. The job search is not a product-processing enterprise but is a rather unpredictable encounter among human beings. The process is both objective and subjective, and candidates should do their best to evoke the person behind the qualifications.
