Unit 6 - Looking for a Job

| Between the Lines | 4e secondaire | English

Students may eventually look for a summer job to pay for their apartment when they enter CEGEP, or simply to have a bit of cash to spend on something they like. This unit will give them hints that might help them land that very important summer job. They will learn how to prepare for an interview or how to write the resumé that will guarantee their success as a teenage job hunter. It will answer the question “Is a job during the school year a good thing or not?”
Finally, they will learn a little bit about themselves while reading.
