This lesson plan is extremely useful for students of all ages.  Though the lesson suggests that it is best for adult learners, the information is useful even for freshman students.  Everyone should have a professional resume to help give them the competitive edge in a job search, and this lesson plan can help with that.  I LOVED that the lesson covered resumes, cover letters, AND portfolios.  That was extremely important to me.  I did however think it could be condensed slightly.  The lesson was meant to take about three hours, which was too long for my purposes.  I also did not use the final exam, although that is a nice feature.  Overall I really enjoyed the lesson and even learned a few things myself from it.  I would recommend using this lesson in the classroom.
