Employability Skills /WOW

Days Until School Ends

 
 
Mock Stock Exchange Competition: University of Denver
                               Overview :
This elective class has a unique and very special way to gather their students together from different backgrounds. The class mainly covers life out side of "school" where the kids learn and interact with real life situations.
 

 


Employability skills are an important part of students’ learning and fundamental to creating an employable individual. Students must have skills and knowledge necessary to be good citizens, effective parents, productive workers, and, most of all, life-long learners. These standards are designed to promote successful transition from school to work.

 After an Interview:

 How to write an Effective Interview Thank You Letter:

The key areas are the initial thank you sentence, the skills summary recap emphasizing a strong fit, the request to be considered, and the salutation. The interview thank you letter should be no longer than four or five sentences, and sent as an email. For example:
 
Hi (Interviewer's name),
 
Thank you for meeting with me yesterday to discuss your job opening. To summerize our conversation, my strong background in sales combined with my knowledge of the industry are a perfect fit for the job opening. I am excited about the prospect of bringing my skills and expertise to your company, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
 
Sincerely,
 
(your name)
