Lankard, Bettina A.
This learning module is one of a series that teaches the competencies of "Job Search Skills," part of the "Work Skills" package--a set of competency-based instructional materials written for low-level readers that prepares students with specific job search and job keeping skills. ("Work Skills" is part of the "Connections" package, which represents a synthesis of significant work on education and employment and presents a coordinated set of resources to assist school administrators, counselors, teachers, and employers in helping students in their school and work transitions.) This competency booklet covers three tasks needed to prepare for the job search: choosing a job and preparing for employment, compiling information for applications and resumes, and preparing the resume. Each task is coordinated with operational units, a performance objective, and a step-by-step procedure for performing the task as well as suggestions for evaluation. Each operational unit contains some or all of the following: a competency statement, a task statement, a unit title, a performance objective, steps entailed in completing the performance objective, and one or more information sheets.
