At the time of our final, please bring the following document as part of your grade:
Imagine that you are being considered as one of two candidates for a management position in a field that interests you. You consider this to be the opportunity you have always wanted. The team you manage is diverse and includes individuals both younger and older than you are. The decision-maker, Mary Cadbury, asks both of you, as her chosen candidates, to write a personal letter describing:
1. The type of manager you aim to be - the attributes you bring to the work environment
2. How you will motivate your team to do their best work
3. How the formal study of management has enabled you to be the strong candidate you are.
Note: The above must be typewritten and without errors. It can be as short as one single spaced page, or as long as two. Be succinct, but be thoughtful and above all else, honest and convincing. How will you showcase your skills to an employer you really want to impress?
