The Job Interview
As a part-time college student, Karen takes jobs just to pay the bills, a practice that has given her a zigzag resume that leaves would-be employers wondering if she can commit.
In this dramatization, career adviser Avril puts job-hopper Karen on the spot with a tough-love approach to interviewing designed to shake Karen out of her complacency and help her land a dream job.
Topics include pre-interview research, types of job interviews and interview questions, the STAR interviewing response technique, and more.
The Career Portfolio
Emma and Lucy are high school seniors interested in a career in fashion. Their credentials are very similar, and when the two apply for the same retail fashion job and Lucy wins out, its her career portfolio that sets her apart from Emma.
But what exactly is a career portfolio? How is one created, and how precisely does it fit into the job application process?
This video tells all, as it explains the difference between specific and general skills, types of documents to include that illustrate those skills, and how to make use of the portfolio at an interview.
