Module 2 Getting Prepared

<< Back to Punch-In Employment Course

Organize, plan and practice for job success.

The Getting Prepared module will help you learn about some of the skills involved in finding and keeping a job. It's important to take some time to get ready for the job search.

Start by asking yourself a couple of questions. What type of positions are you looking for? What employers do you want to target? Consider other factors such as what job location you are looking for, benefits that you might be interested in, as well as company culture. Thinking about work readiness skills, such as your work ethic or leadership style, will also help you to write a great resume and cover letter. Thoroughly explore all the sections of this module. The work done here will help you in every phase of the process, including being successful at a job once you've accepted it.
