Students prepare for the  real-world of work learning about job applications.

 

 

JOB APPLICATION LESSON PLAN

 

 

This lesson may be used to prepare students for the real-world of work.  Students practice writing and filling out sample job application forms.  Includes printable worksheets, and sample resume.  Multiple levels for different age groups.

 

SUGGESTED GRADE LEVELS

Middle School through High School.  Secondary Education. Special Education. Teens.

 

OBJECTIVES

Students learn how to fill out a job application form.

 

 

 
 

 

PROCEDURE

Print out the sample job application forms below, which include fictional businesses.  The students should practice filling in the job application.

 

Each application step (or difficulty level) progressively adds additional information for the students to fill in.  Students should take their time filling out multiple copies of each step, each time working on neat handwriting, correct spelling, correct information, etc.

 

Students may pull the information to use on the form from the sample resume, or may use their own information.  The sample resume is a success resume -- a beginning step towards writing a professional resume for middle school students with no formal job experience.    This format gives students an idea of thinking about the things they need to do to be successful in the real world.  It is not a real resume, but it gives students an early idea of what a resume is all about.
