Today all students will be effective communicators. Today all students will complete an assignment that can be used as a cheat sheet before the interview. We will be looking at questions the interviewer will ask you about the company and yourself. Then we will look at questions you will ask the interviewer at the end of the interview.
Your answers must be thought out before the interview. The goal of the interview is to get to know you, so do not write down one-liners. You will need to provide extra insight into why you state what you do. For instance: What are you plans for the future?
If you answer, "Go to school." the person interviewing you has not learned anything about you. On the other hand, if you say, " I have always been interested in the ocean, so my goal is to begin looking into being a marine biologist. I know that I might change my mind along the way, so I am open to other avenues."
We are working under the career tab today.
Today all students will be Effective communicator. Today all students will complete the interview questions. Being prepared for questions in an interview can be the determining factor between getting the job or not. We will develop three different categories of questions that are applied during an interview: questions you will ask the interviewer at the end of the interview, questions the interviewer will ask you about your personal goal and career perspective, and questions the interviewer may ask you about their company. All three of the categories are equally important and should be thought out before the interview, not during the interview.

Directions for journal writes:
The purpose for writing journal writes is to fulfill the argumentative writing for the term in this course. We focus on reading the article four times. Rationale: the first time you read the article you are reading for main point. The second time, you will spend most of the time fighting with your brain as it will tell you that you have already read this and it does not want to read it again. The third time you read the article, you brains says "Okay, I get it what is this article really talking about. The fourth time, you mind is ready to really work with the information and help you form a strong opinion on it. We will practice with the first journal write.
1st sentence: A strong hook stating your stand (stance)
2-4 sentences support your stand (stance
5th sentence is your thesis- what is your main point you are driving home to your reader?
The journal writes are to be exactly five sentences- no more, no less. Your sentences must be complete sentences (not a two or three word sentence). Your goal: To convince the reader that your stand is the only option, period.
Caution: DO NOT start your sentence with "In the article I read I agree..." this is not a HOOK. Your reader will be bored to death, make it something interesting to spur the reader to want to read your paragraph.
Today all students will be quality prducers. Today all students will complete the Myers and Briggs personality profile. This assignments is the foundational assignment for 7 different assignments, so please DO NOT GO AHEAD. We will be taking the results and creating our first Google Drive Document.
