    Career Prep With UPS

    What: On Wednesday, October 5th, Leyden will host Career Prep with UPS. This is a chance for students to learn about: how to get hired, how to keep a job, and leadership through our panel discussions, period 1-3.  Each period has a different theme, so even if a student is in multiple classes that participate, they will get something new out of each period. For students to really engage, we ask that the Juniors and Seniors turn in a resume to you. These students will have the opportunity to conduct a mock interview!  

     

    Why: This day highlights our careers areas, and gives students a dry run at interviewing and resume writing.  The idea is that when the next interview really matters he/she will be prepared.

    Resources:

    • Here is a clip with examples of good and bad interviews. (4 Minutes)
    • Here is a clip with tips for students with little or no work experience. (4 Minutes)
    • Here is the top 10 interview mistakes. (3 Minutes)
    • The Bad Resume - This is an example of a bad resume (with real mistakes).
    • The Good Resume -  This is an example of a good resume structure with a list of action verbs.
    • Do’s and Don’ts  - This is a reminder of best practices for interviewing.
