The instructor's manual contains teaching hints along with the content, case studies, a presentation checklist for job interviews, a glossary of cultural terms, and an annotated bibliography of 26 items. The student workbook includes an "exploring cultural values" test, a brainstorming worksheet, a worksheet for documenting the job search, a script for telephone contacts, sample job interview questions, a critique sheet for practicing job interviews, and a glossary.
