Product Overview

Taking the Next Step: A Guide to Creating High School Resumes and Portfolios is a unique resource that helps students turn high school classes, activities, and accomplishments into resumes and portfolios that get results. Students learn how to organize important information about themselves - their objectives, skills, education, and work and volunteer experience. Through the use of extensive worksheets that act as a data source to which students can refer throughout their careers, students become aware of their values, their responsibilities, and areas where they need more experience. They are also able to clarify their career and education goals, explore available resources, and determine their life direction. Special features of the text include The Data Minder, which provides students with a portable source for important information; extensive coverage of resumes and portfolios; The Career Decision-Making Model, which helps students learn to be self-directed and make effective decisions; inspiring examples of resumes created by real students; and an extensive table of possible careers, education requirements, and salary information from the Occupational Outlook Handbook. In addition, students learn to develop networking skills, contact potential employers, complete applications for employment, and understand the skills required for retaining jobs. Students will gain experience in answering interview questions and writing the business communication pieces of cover letters and thank-you notes.
