BA Project 1 Audience Analysis

Page history last edited by Brian Atiyeh 9 years, 5 months ago
  1. Begin by identifying the specific task your readers will perform using your communication
    1. What does Anderson say are the three key things Employers look for?  (p.25) How will your C.V. provide these? 
    2. What are the Three Ways Employers Read Resumes?  How can your resume accommodate these?  Is a one page resume enough? (p. 26)
    3. Save this short audience analysis on your roster in this question/answer format.
  2. Identify the readers' attitudes that are relevant to the communication
    1. How will you learn who your readers are and what they want?  Follow Anderson's "Guideline 1" by finding out as much as you can about who is likely to read your resume, about what their objectives are, and about what they want from an employee.  Use this Guideline to list several names of potential readers, what you can determine about their objectives as individuals within an organization, and what they will want from you.

The three things Anderson says employers look for are technical expertise, supporting abilities, and favorable personal qualities. My C.V. will provide these in a bulleted style including my past jobs, software engineering knowledge, and people skills through experience.


The three ways employers read resumes are initial screening, detailed examination of the most promising applications, and preparation for in-depth interviewing. My resume will better accommodate these by me finding out exactly what the employer wants or needs in a candidate to fill the position.


To find out what the reader wants, I went to their website and they already gave me a list of qualifications that I am required to have to apply to the job. Using extras that I've done is a good way to stand out from the crowd of applicants for these popular listings at Nvidia or Microsoft. An example of what Nvidia wants below

     Minimum Requirements:
          Minimum GPA: 3.5 
               • Pursuing BS or higher degree in Computer Science, or related degree (MS/PhD strongly preferred) 
               • Strong C/C++ programming skills
               • Some background in compilers either through coursework or projects
               • Good software engineering skills. Experience in working on large software  projects is highly preferred
