What It's About

Congratulations on finishing level 1 of your first job survival skills journey! You have successfully made it through the challenges of level 1 and are now ready to move on to level 2.

While nailing the first 90 days at a new job is important, obtaining permanent status in any job is likely your end goal as an employee. Unit 2® recognizes 11 attributes that are fundamental to achieving this status and considered necessary for career success.

  • Trustworthiness – Employers seek out reliable employees they can trust to fulfill their responsibilities without fail. Honesty, reliability, and consistency are all traits most valued in the workplace.
  • Cooperativeness – Teamwork is necessary for success in the workforce. Being able to work with others, communicate proactively, and support others to achieve their targets are some of the cooperative skills employers seek.
  • Appearance – Appearance plays a key role in first impressions, and it’s believed that people’s attire should communicate professionalism and dedication. Proper hygiene, grooming, and appropriate dress code help project a positive image of oneself.
  • Language – Communicating effectively and appropriately is essential at the workplace. Verbal, written, and non-verbal communication skills all play important roles in workplace interactions.
  • Sociability – Building relationships and establishing strong networks are critical. By being sociable, one can build social capital and create opportunities that enable one to establish a successful career.
  • Tolerance – We interact with people from different backgrounds every day, and therefore, understanding diverse cultures, beliefs, values, and lifestyles can provide a unique advantage for creating effective communication and cooperation at the workplace.
  • Self-Control – Control over one’s emotions and behaviors is essential for workplace success. Understanding your reactions to different situations and managing them effectively is critical to maintain positive relationships with coworkers.
  • Self-Esteem – Maintaining a positive mindset and a positive self-image is essential to project a confident and positive image of oneself. Positive self-esteem can lead to better decision-making skills and boost productivity.
  • Focus – Staying focused and attentive to one’s responsibilities and commitments is key for success. Avoiding distractions, setting priorities, understanding the critical path, and time management are some strategies that can help maintain focus.
  • Customer Friendliness – Every business wants to please its customers, so it stands to reason that employers value employees who possess strong customer-service skills. Stellar customer service requires empathy, problem-solving skills, and a people-first approach.
  • Responsibility – Employers look for employees who are accountable for their actions and tasks without external follow-ups. Demonstrating responsibility means fulfilling commitments, completing responsibilities on time, and prioritizing tasks to meet deadlines

“The students responded well to First Job Survival Skill 2: (Job Permanence and Moving Up)... and the humor helped them “digest” the material more readily.”

Diane L. Marks, High School thru Adult Special Education/At-Risk Teacher, Portland, OR

What You Will Learn

With more than four hours of instruction, six modules and teacher’s guides, and countless activities, this model is ideal for teachers and administrators who want to use this program to teach the crucial skills to help students survive and thrive in the workforce.

Who’s Gonna Know?

In the first module, your students will learn that honesty, reliability, and responsibility are all part of being trustworthy. Being a dependable employee who keeps their word is essential to building good working relationships with colleagues, clients, and management.

Look Out For #1

Being cooperative and helpful in the workplace creates an excellent employer-employee relationship. In the Look Out For #1 module, students will learn that demonstrating self-control and leaving personal issues outside of work is paramount in the workplace. The importance of communication and teamwork is also emphasized.

Gotta Be Me!

First impressions are everything, and your first day on the job sets the tone for your entire career.

In this module, you’ll learn how to dress appropriately for your workplace, the do’s and don’ts of office small talk, and how to conduct yourself in a professional manner.

Customers Are a Pain

No matter what industry you work in, you’ll encounter customers who are less than pleasant. Being able to handle customer complaints without losing your cool is a valuable skill that can make or break your career. This module will teach you how to make customers feel welcomed, how to maintain professionalism, and how to handle complaints calmly.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Being a quality employee means showing your boss that you’re listening, engaged in the task, and focused. Organization and attention to detail are paramount to success in any job.

This program provides 49 minutes of instruction split into three parts, along with a teacher’s guide to assist with the learning process.

The Boss Will Understand

This module’s emphasis is on being responsible, positive, and living the work ethic. Bosses appreciate employees who can keep their personal lives at home, maintain a positive attitude, and are dedicated to their work.

With 45 minutes of instruction and a teacher’s guide, this program is a valuable tool for any new employee.

"You know why I believe so many new employees have trouble on their first job? I think it's because they assume I'm going to relate to them like a parent or caretaker… like they're someone deserving of special treatment and infinite tolerance! That's an unfortunate workplace delusion and exactly what FJSS 3 addresses."
