A Training Manual to Facilitate the Job Seeking Process.
Heck, Edward J.; O'Neil, James M.
This manual, designed for students who wish to optimize their chances of presenting themselves in a favorable way to potential employers, is written in a style that tries to avoid being overly prescriptive to increase the probability that college students will read and use the information. The purpose of this training manual is to provide students with different kinds of information about the job interviewing process. The materials are divided into three sections, including pre-interviewing preparation, the process of job interviewing, and post-interview assessment. The manual's objectives for students are: (1) to specify how to write letters of introduction, vitae and resumes; (2) to specify different interview strategies; (3) to learn how to prepare for the actual job interview, and (4) to learn how to improve one's skills after the interview. The pre-interview section focuses on such topics as personal preparation, letters of introduction, and resumes. The process of interviewing section includes a definition of the interview process, the kind of information to share during the interview, typical questions asked during the interview, and important questions that the interviewee might ask. The post interview section offers suggestions for the interviewee after the interview. Examples of letters of introduction, resumes, and the vita are included at the end of the manual. (Author/JAC)
