Get Ready, Get Set, Get a Job! Pre-Employment Activities for Grades 7-12.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Educational Services.
This publication was developed as a response to many requests for a logically ordered set of pre-employment activities for grades 7-12. The activities were developed for average classroom size and hours using the career developmental areas as a theoretical base. The activities are organized in 13 units that cover the following topics: a closer look at me; choosing an occupation; men, women, and jobs; vocabulary for job seekers; seeking employment; direct information; the resume; the application form; preparing for the interview; looking for a part-time job; keeping your job; termination; and personal finances. Each activity follows a standardized format of title of unit, title of activity, objective, procedure, suggested evaluation activities, notes for local adaptation, career developmental areas addressed, resource for the activity, and the student activity sheet. Activities within the publication refer to a folder called "Profile Me" which is described in the first unit and in which results of surveys and activities can be inserted so that students can collect information about themselves for future assessment.
