Careers (A Course of Study). Unit VII: Now that You've Got the Job--How Do You Keep It?
Designed to enable special needs students to learn how to hold a job and how to change jobs when necessary, this set of activities is the seventh unit in a nine-unit secondary level course intended to provide handicapped students with the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed in the world of work. In the first chapter entitled "How Do I Keep My Job?" good and bad work habits and attitudes are covered in six activities which involve the analysis of hypothetical situations, discussion of basic work habits, and discussion of common causes of promotions and firings. A total of fourteen hypothetical situations on the subject of getting along with employers and co-workers are presented for analysis in chapter 2. Reading and discussion questions supplied in the third chapter on changing jobs cover assessing one's true feelings about his or her job, quitting a job, steps to take after being fired, and resigning. A posttest concludes this unit. (The other eight course units which include activities on job search methods, job applications, job-related forms, job interviews, changing careers, and budgeting are available separately--see note.)
