Young people seeking employment usually do not have a great deal of job experience, yet they have probably already built up an impressive array of transferable skills without realizing it.

This program helps students understand that skills they have acquired at school and in their personal lives may help them land their first job. Planning outings with friends, raising money for charity, and playing video games are some of the activities that enable teens in the video to develop proficiency in communication, problem solving, and using current technology—all valuable abilities with which to enhance their resumes. 

Video Segments

1. Communication Good communication skills involve listening, understanding, clear verbal ability, following instructions, interpreting directions, and the use of body language.

2. Teamwork and Problem-Solving Skills Two young men assemble something, but without reading the instructions, they assemble it poorly. Problem-solving skills include thinking clearly, thinking laterally, working through the problem step-by-step, using strategies, and brainstorming ideas.
