It is important for today’s graduates to prepare before beginning the search for an externship and/or job. Employers expect perspective applicants to display the proper attitude, to bring appropriate resumes and portfolios, to develop interviewing skills, and to research the company to which they are applying. 100% Externship Success equips students and instructors with the tools needed to plan and search for an externship and/or job. In addition, information on turning the externship into a job and being successful in a career is presented.
This textbook has a back-of-the-book CD with games and hands-on exercises and contains advice and guidelines for taking a personal inventory, writing a resume, planning for the interview, finding an externship or job, and working. Special features include self-assessments, exercises, reflection questions, summary lists, and case studies.
