This creative and challenging
program turns a learning environment into a realistic job
interview site. Individuals learn how to write a resume, go
on job interviews, complete jobs applications, and write
business letters. It is designed to turn every student into
an applicant and every teacher into an instant interviewer.
This well-organized binder contains a teacher's manual, five
student work packets, a wallet resume, an interview
review/form, and an application correction form. All
materials are reproducible. The comprehensive student work
units teach the necessary skills for finding a job.

preferences, and qualifications to decide if they should
apply for specific jobs. Students are taught about help
