Description: One of the key characters in the study of Medieval Japan is the Samurai. The Samurai were brave and fierce warriors, yet also wrote poetry and engaged in floral arranging. They contracted themselves out to provide loyal service to the daimyo (feudal landowner). You are a brave, skilled samurai. Your daimyo has recently died and you need to find another to serve. You need to prepare a resume and a cover letter that will lead to you being hired by another daimyo. The main purpose of a resume is to list your skills and achievements in a generalized manner.
