Learning Activity 7

Two handouts

7-1: Cold Calling

Cold calling is the art of approaching an employer by telephone. Learners read the information about cold calling on the handout and then write a script for calling a company or organization about a job. They practice their cold calls with classmates.

7-2: Job Interview Skills

Prepare learners for the world of work by role playing a job interview. Ask learners to practice interviewing and being interviewed for a job. The handout provides questions and other pertinent information for job interviews.

The instructor can also set up mock interviews for each learner. Give them a job description and interview time. Ask them to dress up and come prepared for the interview. Tape the interview and discuss it afterwards. Tell each learner positive things they said and did in the interview and one thing they should work on.
