An employment proposal is a document which contains an account of the qualities and achievements of an individual presented to a potential employer in the hope of securing employment. Such an employment proposal must not be overstated, though the candidate for the job must be able to present himself well. It is the basis on which further communication may be established between the employer and the employee and thus, it must be written carefully.
