Drama Planning 10 - Jobs Unit

It's time to find a job, but how do you know which jobs are right for you?

In this unit, you will learn about employability skills, build your job portfolio (which includes a resume and cover letter), and learn about the application and interview processes.

You will be working on a variety of activities in this unit of study.  See you teacher for specific details. 

Where do you start?

  • Check Library and Community Center bulletin boards.
  • Talk with family members or friends' families? Perhaps there is an opening where they work? Or, they know of an opportunity that might be of interest.
  • Look through the Classified Ads in the Newspapers.
