Premiere Date:Thursday, May 05, 2005
This program is a mix of dramatic scenarios and documentary formatting. The dramatic segments look at individuals wanting to improve themselves and get good paying jobs. The documentary portions feature employers, counselors, job seekers, and people who have gone through the process of self-evaluation, training, and job searching. This episode focuses on the interview process. An interview is a chance for an employer to see if a job applicant is right for the business and also a chance for the applicant to decide if the job is desirable. The program presents the four main parts of an interview: Opening - where you meet the interviewer and make small talk; Answering Questions - where you try to present your skills and experience in their best light; Asking Questions - where you ask questions you may have about the company; Closing Moves - where you find out what will happen next. Examples of interviews are given and employers talk about what they look for in an interview.
