Certified Speech Communications Educator with 20+ years of experience teaching about job preparation and future careers.  In addition, I have worked in several managerial roles that have required interviewing and hiring.
Learners will be encouraged each day to return with items in the "Get a Job" process to work on for forward progress, this will include:
+A list of current job openings they are interested in (bookmark or Save to PDF)
+Collect 3-5 references, their contact info, & permission to use
+Brainstorming a list of activities, accomplishments, & skills for their resume
+Work on Resume Worksheet or Template
+Compose a draft email for their cover message
+Watch video about FAQ interview questions & complete the worksheet
+WORKSHEETS: References, Resume, & FAQ Worksheets will shared before class starts. +PRINT or COPY DOC: These can be printed or copied in Google Docs for the student to type their work on.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
3 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
JOB SEARCH: Google For Jobs will be used as a tool for class, because this search method collects vacancies from different sites. This way, a job seeker does not have to login / logout on different job sites and no accounts are required. 
GOOGLE WORKSPACE: There will be screen sharing from a Google Slides presentation, so no account is necessary.  If your learner chooses to "make a copy" of any of the provided Worksheets or Templates in Google Docs/Slides, they will need a Google account.
SAFETY: Since job searches & resumes are specific to each individual, I ask that you please remind your student of Outschool's safety policy and to be aware of it during our live class time.  As a general rule, they shouldn't share any personal information about themselves or your family.  Personal information can include, but is not limited to, full name, birthdate, personal email address, address, or phone number.  If they feel comfortable, they can share their location at the country or state level, but it is not required.
