We can’t keep the Stanfield materials on the shelf, they’re that popular!
Module 6 was originally developed as a stand-alone curriculum. Due to its relevancy, it is now an essential part of First Job Survival Skills. The three parts focus on crucial job interview skills and what your students can do to prepare for a positive self-presentation when they first meet the boss—how to guarantee they’ll get their foot in the door. This module is narrated by Ken Allen, a successful job applicant. Ken tells of his experiences of being rejected for job after job even though he was well qualified for several of them. After examining how he was presenting himself and becoming aware of several mistakes he was making throughout the job interview process, Ken finally landed the job he wanted. His narration points out mistakes he made and how your students can avoid making the same ones.
The child who is ‘left behind’ most is the one who leaves school without transition readiness.
