1- Identify two online job-search resources available to job seekers looking within the open market and explain the advantages of each.
2-The first step in a job search involves (1) analyzing your interests and goals and (2) evaluating your qualifications. Provide an example of a question that you should ask yourself for each of these areas (for a total of two questions). Then, explain the importance of examining each of these types of questions. You can refer back to the activity in Week 1 where you examined your listening and soft skills.
3- You want to build your personal brand for your job search. Using the examples in your textbook as models, write a tagline that describes what you do and who you are. (You may want to include information from your top five strengths as identified by the Strengths Finder assessment.) Then write a short elevator speech (two or three sentences) which shows that you are aware of the unique and meaningful contributions that you can make to a professional organization.
Assume that you are in a job interview for a position in your field. The interviewer is using situational and behavioral questions to test your thought processes and to find out how you have reacted in specific situations. For each of the following two questions, write your response as you would deliver it in the interview.
1- Your supervisor has just told you that she is dissatisfied with your work, but you think it’s acceptable. How would you resolve the conflict?
2- Describe a situation in which you were able to use persuasion to successfully convince someone to see things your way.
