Job searching

  • Man with resume

Purpose

Learn how to find and obtain jobs.

Description

Invite the stake or ward employment specialist to share with the youth how he or she helps prepare individuals to find employment. Ask the employment specialist to help the youth with some basic job-search skills (such as networking, interviewing, or writing resumes) and tips (such as dress and grooming and how to appear calm and confident). Consider letting the youth practice these skills with each other (for example, in simulated interviews). You could also give them time to prepare their own resumes or practice filling out job applications. Discuss how different careers could affect your family and Church activity.
