First Year Students Competencies 13 & 14 Review

If you decide to change jobs, you should work a two week notice.

A job application should be filled in completely using blue or black ink.

A previous employer is a suitable reference for a job application.

You should ask permission from someone before listing them as a reference.

A resume should relate to one's job objective. It should also include work experience and education history.

An entrepreneur must be able to take risks and deal with competition.

If you have a job as a stock clerk, acceptable behavior on the job is to concentrate on stocking.

If you are in a meeting, it is acceptable to make a list of work-related jobs that need completion during parts of the meeting that do not apply to you.

If you work in a job with flexible hours and a coworker gets upset/makes negative remarks, you should continue to do your work as usual.

If two employees are being considered for a promotion, they should both cooperate and be polite at work until the selection is announced.

If you oversleep and do poorly on a test, at your after-school job you should still perform your job to the best of your ability.
