My First Job

The first day on the job—not to mention the first week or the first month—can be an overwhelming experience. This program empowers job seekers as well as new hires as they explore the issues surrounding what is invariably a major life change. Students are introduced to the preparations typically needed to survive, and possibly even enjoy, their first day. These include planning transportation to work, company orientation, identifying and reporting to supervisors, getting to know coworkers, fitting into a team, and occupational health and safety issues. An employee’s rights and responsibilities are also an important topic. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online. (25 minutes)
