At the end of a lesson introducing terminology for jobs, have students design their own resumes. The teacher may pass out her own resume and discuss information that typically goes into one, such as past jobs held and education. Format and purpose, to convince a potential employer you are suitable for a job, should also be addressed. Discuss alternates to employment that might be listed, such as volunteer work or education, that students might put down if they have no job record. The students can then start work on their resumes and review a peer’s as time allows.

From this activity students gain valuable knowledge job search techniques while practicing writing and vocabulary skills.
