Assignment 2: Dropbox Assignment

Cover Letter and Resume

You want to apply for the position of Human Resources Director with a Fortune 1000 company in the field of retailing. The company "would prefer" applicants with at least four years of experience, though others can also apply. You are six months short on the preferred experience. However, you are absolutely confident of yourself and want to convince the recruiter about the same.

Keeping in mind the above scenario, in a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document, create a cover letter that convinces the recruiter about your competency for this job and a resume. Your cover letter and resume must incorporates the following:

  • The cover letter should be concise and to the point, following the 3-paragraph structure.

  • The resume must have an impressive, original objective statement and a summary of qualifications.

Assignment 2: Source of Revenue: Viability

Use the balance sheet and statement of income you downloaded for Ascension Health during Week 3. In a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, prepare a vertical analysis of the company for the years 2013 and 2014 and a horizontal analysis from 2013 (base year) to 2014 (subsequent year).

Discuss your findings. Here are a few, but not all, the questions you should consider.

  • Is Ascension Health growing?
  • What line items reflected the largest-percentage increases and/or decreases?
  • What is the financial impact these changes have on the company's financial viability currently and in the future?

By Tuesday, February 23, 2016, submit your 2–3-page report to the W4: Assignment 2 Dropbox.

Name your document SUO_HCM3005_W4_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.

Assignment 2 Grading Criteria
Maximum Points
Prepared a vertical analysis, listed all items of data and performed necessary calculations correctly.
Prepared a horizontal analysis, listed all items of data and performed necessary calculations correctly.
Drew valid conclusions about viability.
Communicated ideas and opinions explicitly and clearly in writing.



For W4, A2 you are asked to complete a Vertical Analysis and a Horizontal Analysis.  Please note that you are required to perform each analysis for two separate statements.  This means that you will want four separate analyses. I recommend using Excel and creating a separate tab for each analysis. 

In Doc Sharing you will find a short example of Vertical and Horizontal analysis that I posted this morning. I encourage you to review that example as it might help clarify some of the details that aren't directly outlined in the lecture notes.

Questions? Let me know!
Collapse Mark as UnRead Week 4 Assignments Danielle Philipson2/18/2016 12:00 AM
Now that you know a little bit about financial statements, we are going to spend Week 4 focused on how to perform critical analysis of financial statements. The assignments for the week are as follows:
  • A1 - Due 2/20
  • A2 - Due 2/23

For A2, be sure to complete the entire assignment.  This means that you have done all of the following:

1) Vertical analysis of entire Balance Sheet
2) Horizontal analysis of entire Balance Sheet
3) Vertical analysis of entire Statement of Income
4) Horizontal analysis of entire Statement of Income
5) Answered the questions listed in the instructions.

It is a good idea to use Excel for this assignment and to use a separate tab/worksheet for #1-4 above.  If you have questions, be sure to let me know.
