The job search I am looking for is from Union Pacific Rail Road Freight Transportation. As a Train Master
Initiating the job search
In the SLPs for this course, you will assume the role of a currently employed professional wanting to change careers. Each of the SLPs will focus on different phases of the job search. In each SLP, you will apply the business communication principles covered in the module.
Search for companies you are interested in working for, or jobs you are keen on. You may begin your search at an employment website (such as Monster.com, usajobs.gov, etc.) and find a job opening that interests you. Save the existing job advertisement for a position you are interested in.
You will be completing the subsequent SLPs using this job opening you identified.
Write a generic email, using principles from routine and goodwill emails, to inquire about your desired position. You may ask questions related to application procedures, deadlines, references, or any other detail. The objective of this email is to build rapport with the company and notify them of your interest, and the possibility you may be submitting an application later on. Include the actual job advertisement in your submission. This could be a pdf document, or a link to the advertisement.
Following the email, write an essay explaining the principles and good practices you followed while creating it.
Submit your assignment by the module’s due date.
