Landing Your First Job

This class will be for student 15 - 19 years old. They will be learning tools and tricks to landing their first job. I will be providing them first time resume writing tips and how to complete an employment application. After we review the resumes and the applications, we will conduct mock interviews for either a grocery store cashier or restaurant team member. The students will have an opportunity to interview one another.

I will provide them mock interview rating sheets, and resume paper to keep. It would be preferred if the class was an even number.

Materials: Students should bring/come with: Laptop is preferred - We will work on resumes together as a group. Come dressed in interview-ready attire

About Your Teacher: My name is Alexis Davis. I have over 10 years of domestic and global Human Resources experience. I possess a degree specializing in Human Resources Management. My HR passion is developing talent, being an influential leader, and problem solving.

At the age of 15, I walked into my first interview. My palms were sweaty and my heart was palpitating. I sure was nervous!!! I did not possess the tools I needed to prepare for the interview; but with my ability to write and speak clearly, as well as the level of maturity I exhibited during the interview, I was offered the job on the spot. I was handed a bright green shirt and told to report to work the next day. Needless to say, I was the best Dollar Tree cashier they ever had. :-)
