  2. 2. GETTING THE JOB- RESUME • Know how to make a successful resume, and include as much information as you can on yourself and your strengths; this will make potential employers more likely to consider you. • Scout out some potential workplaces on the internet or newspaper. Some businesses will put up “now hiring” signs on their doors or windows as well, pay attention to these!
  3. 3. GETTING THE JOB-RESUME This is a good example of an easy, successful resume. The easiest way to create a resume is to use a template, which can be found online. Include all important information about yourself, and follow what the template outlines for you.
  4. 4. GETTING THE JOB- RESUME • Hand out your resume to many places you’re considering to work; not just one. The more you hand it out to, the more likely you are to get a call back. Don’t just depend on one potential workplace. • If you don’t get any calls back at all, wait a while, go back to hand them out again! However, be careful not to be annoying 
  5. 5. GETTING THE JOB-INTERVIEW • Once you are contacted by a potential employer, you will be asked to come in for an interview. When getting ready for the interview, it is usually helpful to look good. Most potential employers are more likely to hire people that present themselves as nice looking, on the first meeting. To them, it shows respect and confidence. • Confidence is also important. Hold your head up and speak with a clear voice, but try not to seem over confident or cocky. • **Note** Some employers prefer you not to wear access jewlery (ie; piercings) but it depends… each employer will be different.
  6. 6. GETTING THE JOB-INTERVIEW This man is a good example of a “first sight” experience for a potential employer; Good posture, attentive look, and nicely dressed.
  7. 7. GETTING THE JOB-INTERVIEW • How you talk to the potential employer is very important. • Confidence is key • Answer all his or her questions with complete honesty, employers will recognize the honesty. Highlight your strengths, but don’t boast about them. • He or she will ask many questions; they could range from simple to personal. Be prepared to answer either or both.
  9. 9. GETTING THE JOB-INTERVIEW • Each potential employer will have different questions for you, here are the most common ones: • “What interests you in this job?” • “Why do you want this job?” • “What skills or abilities do you have?” • “What will you do to contribute to this company?” • “What does ‘Customer service’ mean to you?” • “What challenges are you willing to face?” • “What more would you like to know about this job/company?”
  10. 10. GETTING THE JOB-THE CALL BACK • After your interview, the employer will choose to call you back, or not. If you are unsuccessful, they will probably not call you back. You can call them to ask, but again, try not to be annoying. • If they call you back, and say you got the job, Yay! Good job! Be polite and say thank you, and if they don’t specify, ask when you will be starting.
  11. 11. THE JOB • Congrats! You now have a job! Work hard at your job, and try your best!
  12. 12. WORKPLACE SAFETY • Once you have your job, it is important to know how to keep safe while you’re at it!
  13. 13. WORKPLACE SAFETY • Everyone needs to be careful and aware of the risks associated with a job. Every job has risks, but certain ones more than others. • Some common workplace injuries that can be prevented are: • Cuts, Burns, slips and falls, bone fractures, concussions, muscle strain, sickness. • You can prevent all of these with proper instruction, training, and sensibility!
  14. 14. WORKPLACE SAFETY • Did you know, young workers are more likely to get hurt on the job than any others? This can be for many different reasons, such as lack of experience, fear to ask for help, or stress from outside sources such as school or friends. • All injuries are preventable though, so make sure you know your rights and risks!
  15. 15. WORKPLACE SAFETY-RIGHTS • As a worker, you have certain rights to keep you safe. Such as: • The right to proper training for any part of your job • The right to refuse an order if you feel unsafe • The right to ask for help when needed • The right to participate • *Remember, just because you are new or inexperienced does not mean you should be in more danger than other employees!!*
