It's hard to find a good job. To compete students need to speak articulately, write effectively, and present themselves confidently. They prepare for the workplace by creating a résumé, gathering letters of recommendation, practice writing a cover letter and resignation letter, and going through a mock interview.
Professional Documentation Instructions and Links
Professional documentation presents information about your background, experience, skills, and other peoples’ opinions of you. Having this information all together makes it easier for you to apply and show your suitability for a job or scholarship. Put copies of the following documents in the Job Readiness section of your Capstone binder. You should also keep digital copies of key documents so you can update and customize them for prospective jobs in the future (see Online Storage). At a minimum the information should include the following artifacts.
Mock Interview Instructions and Links
To gain further experience so you are better prepared for the workplace, you will meet with another adult who will ask you questions as if it was a real job interview. He or she will also evaluate your performance in the areas of preparedness, body language, voice quality and content just like your peer practice interview. After the interview you will send a thank you email to the interviewer.
