The Independent Living Series was developed to help students prepare for the real-life challenges of working and living on their own. The first step towards real independence is having a job and making your own money. Getting a Job provides detailed information about what it takes to apply for and get a job.


Students will learn how to conduct a job search using websites, employment agencies, newspaper ads, and networking. There are step-by-step instructions about how to apply for a job. Including how to write a cover letter and resume, how to fill out a job application, and prepare for a job interview. 


The second part of this book follows five young adults on their journey to get a job.  Students will get familiar with how to read and understand job postings.  They will learn about writing different kinds of cover letters and resumes and how to prepare for a job interview. And then how to evaluate a job offer. The five jobs featured are fast growing jobs that are accessible to most students.   


Follow-up activities include practical application math, basic comprehension questions to reinforce understanding, and practical writing exercises. Some questions ask students to think about the information given and express their opinions and ideas. 


The vocabulary section includes a glossary of words and phrases students may not be familiar with plus activities to test understanding of the new words and phrases.
