You need to find an advertised position that you would be likely to apply for when seeking an internship or graduate position. It should be relevant to your degree and realistic for your level of experience. Constructing your Employment/Internship Application is an exercise designed to develop your professional writing skills and your ability to understand and respond to the requirements of job applications in order to secure interviews. This assessment also tests your editing skills and attention to detail, to ensure that your application is error free and of the highest quality. This assessment item is designed to be used by you as an ongoing working document to assist you in securing an appropriate internship position or employment upon graduation.

1. Professional email

• Present your email in a Word document that contains the following parts:

◦ Email address/to

◦ Subject line: Your name, MNG03236 Application

◦ Body

◦ Signature.

• Each part of your email should be grammatically correct and have no spelling errors or inappropriate abbreviations. It should contain a brief message explaining the purpose of the email and list the attached documents (i.e. your cover letter and CV and a response to the selection criteria).

• Your ‘signature’ field must contain your name and contact details. Ensure these are professionally presented and clearly shown. This will allow a potential employer to quickly contact you if they have difficulties opening the attachments.

• Note: Although you will be uploading the text of your email as a Word document you should address the email to the person and organisation that you are applying for a position with and include.

2. Application letter and CV Application letter

• This should be an application letter written in response to an advertised position. You should choose a position which will be similar to one that you wish to gain for your future internship or graduate position.

• The letter should be a maximum of one (1) page, typed, single-spaced, A4.

• The letter should follow correct five paragraph, business letter format as per the template available in the Unit Content section of the MySCU/Blackboard site.

• Insert a section break (not page break) at the bottom of your cover letter to ensure that your layout stays as it should when transferred across different computers. This will also assist you in setting up footers on your résumé.

• Do not use a footer or page number at the bottom of your letter.

• Your application letter always comes before your résumé.

Résumé/Curriculum Vitae (CV)

• A résumé or curriculum vitae (CV) is the standard and accepted way of setting out in an ordered and factual format, the key aspects of your professional background or working history.

• This should be part of the same Word document as your application letter and start on the page directly after your application letter.

• You must include a footer with your name and page number on pages two and three of your CV (i.e. not on the first page).

• You must include page breaks at the end of each page to preserve formatting and page layouts.

• Your CV content should be appropriate for the type of position you are targeting.

• It must include personal contact details, previous education, work history, skills, achievements, and contact details for three referees.

• Your CV should be no more than three (3) pages, typed, single-spaced.

• See guidelines for the format contained in CV guides and templates in the Unit Content.

3. Response to one selection criteria

This is a separate document headed, ‘Addressing the Selection Criteria’. This will be for an advertised job of your choice that requires applicants to address the selection criteria as part of the application process (typically these are government roles). This job can be different from the one you are targeting in your application letter and CV. Select one criteria from this document that you will address. Use the wording of the selection criterion as a sub-heading and following the guidelines relating to selection criteria from Topic 2 (Understanding the application process), address a single selection criterion in 2–3 paragraphs. See the MySCU site – Assessment Tasks and Submission link – for the feedback sheet for this assessment and be sure to check your work against those criteria before submitting, via the link in the Assessment Tasks and Submission part of the MySCU site.

3. Response to one selection criteria from the selected job advertisement

Customer service- 

As a café manager, it is my responsibility to maximise ultimate customer satisfaction. Besides supervising staff and operating the establishment, café manage has to offer the best guest experience. It includes greeting customers, asking them to seat and offering them the menus. One of the problematic aspects of the job post is dealing with guest complaints that may be related to the quality or price of the foods or pitiable customer service. 

I already have experience in customer service and the way customers need to be handled for influencing their repeat visit to a restaurant. I can apply the same skill as a café manager for guiding staff to deliver exceptional service to the guests and maximising their experience and satisfaction. Customer service remains at the core of any hospitality business; as this kind of companies are entirely customer-driven. I have already worked as a restaurant manager, and I know the way employees need to be motivated to delivering exceptional service to the customers. I am aware of the importance of excellent communication and collaboration among staff for making the activities smoother and avoid repetition of work. It is essential in predicting and understanding customers' need and preferences for serving them the best. I have an excellent skill of interacting with customers, understanding them and offering them the service and products as accurately as they expect. I can train my staff according to the changing needs and preferences of the guests. As I have also taken training on managing food and beverage department and worked in this department in a restaurant, I can monitor the freshness of the coffees and snacks offered to the customers for ensuring the best quality products are provided to them. One fact that I genuinely believe in offering high quality of beverages is not enough for influencing the buying behaviour of consumers positively, but it also demands a great ambience and outstanding service provided to them. In short, they need attention. Therefore, while managing a restaurant, I used to take feedback from customers individually for making them feel valued and knowing if anything affected their experience with the restaurant negatively. This process worked in gaining customer attention and spreading positive word of mouth about the company outside. Hence, I can improve the customer service of Espresso Warriors significantly by applying my skills of customer handling and complaint management.
