Careers (A Course of Study). Unit IV: Applying for the Job.
Designed to enable special needs students to write resumes and complete application forms with employable accuracy, this set of activities on applying for a job is the fourth unit in a nine-unit secondary level careers course intended to provide handicapped students with the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed in the world of work. Chapter 1 contains a pretest, vocabulary list, and eleven activities which provide practice in filling out the various parts of an application form (with emphasis on references, educational background, personal health history, job training, and work experience). Practice in completing three personal data sheets is supplied in the second chapter, and students are required to complete five out of seven actual application forms in the third chapter. Following a discussion of two personal resumes, students are asked to write their own resume. A posttest concludes the unit. (The other eight course units which include activities on job search methods, job interviews, and keeping and changing jobs are available separately--see note.) (MN)
