Dear Mr. Oceanic,


It is in great honors to welcome you aboard the Nautilus! After reviewing thousands of resumes, I am pleased to announce that we have decided to hand pick you to come aboard and work as Science Teacher of this great ship. After reviewing your resume, I find that you are highly educated in all areas expected to know.

I do expect you to read the manual of guidelines to the Nautilus and you will be quizzed on this the first day on the job. If for some reason, you do not pass, you will have 2 other times to retake the test. You will not be able to work until this test is passed and if for some reason you fail on the 3rd try, we will have to ask you to leave. You will also be expected to read 20,000 leagues under the sea by Jules Verne. You will be expected to incorporate this novel into you lesson plan for the students. You will receive 7 teacher books a month prior to starting work. The following subjects are as follows: Physics, Geology, Oceanography, Chemistry, Biology, Geography and Meteorology books to use for your lesson plan. By the first day at work, I expect you to have one months’ lesson plan prepared, which I will look over and approve. You will also be expected to review the following chapters in the Study guide: Scientific method, Ocean Facts, Properties of water, and Phytoplankton.

You will be paid for your time previous to starting work due to the amount of reading and work leading up to employment. This pay will be $2000.00. If you do not pass the quiz on the guidelines, and are asked to leave, you will be expected to pay that amount back. Your salary will be $90,000.00 with a bonus at every quarter, which is 4 months into your stay. Your students will be tested on all materials at the end of your 8-month period and if 90% get an 85% or better, you will get a $10,000.00 bonus, and be asked to stay on as Science Teacher aboard the Nautilus. Your 1st day on the job will be July 1, 2004 and we are looking forward to having you accompany us on our journey. If you have any questions, Please feel free to contact my Secretary, Mrs. Gossip at the following
Number 1-888-234-5678.

Welcome Aboard,


Sargent Smothers
Captain Nemos’ 1st Asst.

Dear Ms. Mateo:

Thank you very much for your interest in the Assistant Marine Geophysicist position with the Nautilus. I have reviewed your letter of interest as well as your resume and I am very impressed. Your oceanographic qualifications are extensive and you seem confident in your knowledge and capabilities. Therefore, at this time, The Nautilus would like to extend employment to you.

Your salary will begin at 100 dramas a day which will increase depending on improvement. The Nautilus has all the equipment that you will need, so please do not feel tempted to bring anything with you. Please be prepared to work several hours a day working on catalogin and GSI projects for the Captain.

We require all employees to sign a Confidential Disclosure which has been enclosed for your review and signature. This basically states that you will not have any contact with the outside world during the period of your employment with the Nautilus, and that upon completion of your term of employment, you agree to be forever bound to silence of any of the information learned, witnessed or otherwise while aboard the ship.

There is also a Code of Conduct which each employee must adhere to which, to summarize requires the following:

- No vocal debates regarding religion, morals or politics with any person aboard the ship;
- No communication with non-employee passengers; and
- No land leave permitted for any reason within your term of employment.

We require that you be ready within 24 hours to meet at the South Bay Docks at 1:15am precisely, where a man named Mr. Maring will take you out 1 mile to sea in a red rowboat where you will be picked up for duty aboard the Nautilus. You will need to undergo an immediate physical before attending to your quarters and orientation.

Sincere Regards,

Sgt. K. Pepper
The Nautilus

Kimberly,

I thought that you letter of employment to Ms. Mateo was very organized and well written. The letter informed the applicant that the policies aboard the ship are very strict and to the point. In the letter it states that Ms. Mateo’s qualifications are extensive, but it does not go into any detail of what they are. I also didn’t notice what she needed to do prior to starting to work, other than her physical. Your letter doesn’t state and study guides, notes, terms or novels that she should brush up on. I was quite intrigued by some of the words you used. For instance, What does the word Dramas come from? Also, I had no clue as to what GSI and Catalogin projects were. But they do seem interesting! I noticed that you letter stressed very highly just how secretive the job was and that the confidential disclosure was to be signed and turned in. I also like how this mystery man would come and row her to 1 mile out in the ocean, in a specific color of a rowboat. This job seems interesting and yet scary at the same time. Great job and good luck in all of your endeavors.

Dear Kimberly Jackson:

I am pleased hear about your recent acceptance of the new Nautilus worker. Acceptance letter is a wonder to marvel at. Your requirments are clear and concise. Your words are articulate and precise. Your confidentality disclosure clause is a very nice element. The salary of dramas is very original and a very fair wage. I must believe by the way the letter is written, that you took very careful considerations to writting it. I not quite sure about not being able to bring any equipment on board. What if a person has a special pencil or trustly paper? I congratulate you on your well writtten paper.

Dear Stacy Blodgett:

Your letter response to Mr. Oceanic was very well written. Your test requirement is a very interesting idea. The required reading is a very good idea, many employers require new workers to read manuals, especially a code of ethics. It is very nice that you had specific salaries and bonus set. I disagree when manatory test of the students. What if students come from a submarine with little property taxes? These students would start off with a grave disadvantage. The idea works in theory, but not in rational practical means. Your contact information is very inventive, Ms Gossip is very well-knowned and like in teh submarine community. Tahnk you for including contact information for the worker if he or she has any questions. Nice job.

Sincerly,

Captain Nemo

Kheim,

Your hired letter of employment to Maria Henry was very clear and precise. It contained great information in regards to responsibily with the crewmen (hey why not women?) on the ship. You stressed that she needed not only be a Psychologist, but also a leader, someone they could look up to and respect. I didn't find in your letter anything stating what she needed to do prior to starting her job, such as brushing up on terms, reading and such. Your letter gave all the info needed as to starting and ending time, and pay. I must say, it must be a strict ship to live on if you can't leave your room or use the bathroom without permission. I did find a couple of spelling errors, but overall, I thought you did good! Keep up the good work!

Best Regards,
Stacy

Hey Stacey,
I really like your acceptane letter to Mr. Oceanic. You seem very professional and strict at the same time. That's good. I think your letter is clear on waht you expect and what should be expected of you from Mr. Oceanic. I liked the way you emphasized the novel. I think that if I was getting hired from you I would be happy, but at the same time I would be very careful of keeping up with my studies.

Dear Kimberly,
I was very impressed with your letter of acceptance. You are a very detailed person which is really good. Your descriptions of the job are right on the dot. The salary took me from a loop I don't know what dramas are but wahtever they are they must be pretty good. I also like the way you out lined your requirements toward the bottom of your letter. You can tell that the person writing is a person of responsibility and dignity, ready to start guiding. I would be honored if I had a boss like this.

Dear Ms. Gutierrez:

We are honored to inform you that have been hired for the position of Underwater Tour Guide aboard the Nautilus. We were deeply impressed with you letter of application that it became evident that you are the applicant we desire for the following position. The high level of expertise that you currently possess as a tour guide provides us with the security that you will be able to successfully and effectively fulfill the position as the Underwater Tour Guide aboard the Nautilus.

The position as Underwater Tour Guide consists of basic requirements and duties such as the following:

*creating tours with an itinerary to follow

the aid of the "viewing glass"
*ability to classify organisms

These are some of the basic requirements and duties that are required for the following position. As these are the basics to the position we highly suggest that you incorporate any creativity that you percieve will be effective in fulfilling the position.

As it is obvious that you have an immense knowledge of the sea we don't believe that it is neccessary for you to further prepare yourself for the postion.
