Veech-Townzen, Annette M.
Designed to help students obtain job skills and abilities that will help them on the job, this guide presents three weeks of lesson plans enabling students to perform each step in acquiring and holding a job in a simulated business. Following suggestions for obtaining products requiring no capital outlay, a brief description of the five departments within the simulated company (Office of the President and Vice President, Secretary, Bookkeeper, Advertising Department, and Salespersons Department) is provided. Topics covered in the lesson plans are letters of introduction; application completion; phone interviews; personal interviews; business operations in the classroom; and responsibilities of the president, vice president, secretary, bookkeeper, and salespersons. Sample want ads, application letters, interviews checklists, memos, and daily work directions are included. (MN)
