Dress for Success

    Assignment Due: 04/10/2020

    Think about the rules that we have learned about dressing well for an interview.  Remember, there is a difference between what you wear out with friends and what you wear to an interview. A good rule of thumb is to dress how you would for church. I want you to groom and dress yourself for a job interview (play dress up) and take a picture and send it to me at 352-362-3285 (my cell).  Watch the Youtube video below called 6 Tips for Your First Job Interview.

    Assignment Due: 04/17/2020

     

    Ask your mom to assign you an area in your house that you can organize.  Do you remember when we worked at Walmart we were trained to pull the canned goods forward.  We learned how to sort, fold and stack.  I want you to use those skills you learned and apply them to your home pantry, closet, drawers etc. (pick one) Be sure to take a photo before (no judgement zone) and send me a picture of your finished results. I want you to have this finished and the picture sent by Friday, April 10. I am sending you a picture of our work closet.  You guys remember how our closet looked in the classroom.  Ms. Churchill has organized it for us.  I wish I had taken a before picture but I did not. She did an amazing job, She's hired!

    Watch each of the interviews including your own.  Use the knowledge that you have gained in class to write what you liked and what you did not like.  Rate the student on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the highest).  Make sure you give evidence to the score.  For example, "I gave Ashanta a 5 because she had very good eye contact, she was calm and seemed to answer the question asked thoroughly."
