Steps to Getting a Job. A Unit of Study Designed to Teach Students Job Seeking Skills.
Arbetman, Edna; And Others
Designed to enable teachers to help job seekers become familiar with basic job search skills, this teaching unit was written for young people or inexperienced job seekers and is intended as a beginning guide. It may be used with many types of job seekers including high school students, Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) participants, adults with limited job experiences, displaced workers, and for any person who has not looked for a job in a long period of time. It may also be modified to use with disabled and English as a Second Language (ESL) students. Lesson plans are provided for teachers, and experiential and hands-on materials and activities are provided for students. Each lesson plan includes the purpose, materials, time, and procedures needed for each session. Fifteen lessons are presented in the following categories: (1) an introduction to the world of work; (2) how to introduce yourself to employers; (3) how to find job openings; and (4) how to prepare for and follow up on job interviews. An 18-item bibliography is included. (JW)
