The presentation covers preparing and applying for jobs, and having the individual’s desired career. The presentation covers a variety of topics, but prefers to have students inquire about their concerns and interests to develop specific discussion areas. The presentation develops the employer’s perspective, so job applicants may: appropriately provide resumes and applications that interest an employer; respond to interview questions and ask questions of the interviewer; and, negotiate the benefit package for an offered position.
