Lesson 20

Today we discussed the process of submitting a job application, resume and then interviewing.  Page 48 in the Citizens Guide lists important things to remember for a job interview.  We discussed how you should NEVER 'lie' or 'exaggerate' your skills on an application or during an interview.  It's best to highlight positive qualities and your willingness to learn. For example, at this young age, students can mention how they have chores at home or help with younger siblings, showing they are responsible for completing tasks.  Each student discussed a quality they possess that they can mention in their interview.

Next week we will hold job interviews in class.  IT IS NOT intimidating or scary!  It's just an opportunity to practice what we have learned and reinforce skills for future reference!  

Homework:

1.  If your student hasn't completed the job application as noted above, please complete (Page 45)

2.  All students should complete the 'Making the Right Impression’ (Page 47).  Let your student answer these; sometimes parents try to sway their student, but this is time for them to be honest and insightful.   Spelling doesn’t matter!

3.  Have your student review the list of items they should remember while interviewing. (Page 48)

**Make sure students bring their Citizens Guide and Green Class Notebook to class each week!**
