Part of Lesson Plan: Preparing for Competitive Events: The Job Application and Interview Event
Activity Overview / Details
Students should complete a sample job application. This should be put in the portfolio but it's a good idea for students to take an extra copy to any job interview. At the competition, they will have to complete one there.
Point out to the students that if they take a completed application, they will have all information necessary for the application used by the company to which they are applying for a job without having to ask to use a phone book or the internet to look up info.
I also point out things including:
--don't leave blanks in the application; it either shows that there are things the applicant does not want to share or the applicant is not interested enough in the job to complete the entire application. Encourage students to either put a line (--) or n/a in a blank for which they do not have an answer.
--use blue/black ink to complete an application
