Applying for a Job. Revised. Employability Skills Series.
Farrow, Douglas R.
This student booklet on applying for a job is one of six in the Employability Skills Series, a set of instructional materials designed to teach secondary students and adults the skills involved in getting and keeping a job. The competency-based material is oriented to young adults but written at approximately the fifth-grade reading level. (An instructor's guide is available separately as CE 031 160.) Designed to help the student prepare for applying for a job, the unit focuses on four areas: pre-application (official papers needed for employment, resumes), filling out an application form, interviewing for a job, and post-application (followup letter, pre-employment tests, accepting a job, failing to get a job). A list of seven knowledge and performance objectives acts as a table of contents. For each objective there are several pages of instructions and some activities for practice. A performance test with performance checklist is provided for each knowledge objective. Answer keys are provided for activities and self-tests where needed. These other materials are also given: unit review and glossary. Two resume forms are appended. (YLB)
