The Job Seeker: Do You Have What It Takes? (Enhanced DVD)
This program puts three job seekers against each other and a host and his assistant. It follows a reality TV show format and shows the role that cover letters, resumes, research, applications, and preparation play in determining who should be hired for an open job. There is intense competition in the show and the three job seekers must go through several different challenges, the same types of challenges that any job seeker would face. They are trying to win a spot as an international travel guide. Advice on job seeking is given throughout the program. Viewers learn from the success and failures of competitors, and they learn what is needed to get hired. A worksheet is included and available on the internet.
