You're Hired! helps students learn important skills in the job search process, especially filling out applications and interviewing. Players take on the role of the employer, the manager of a convenience store. In the first stage of the game, they review applications for the job of assistant manager.
Since they do not have time to interview all applicants, they must choose which applicants to interview on the basis of the applications. It is a powerful learning tool, because the students themselves discover the value and characteristics of good applications by their decisions in the game. In the second stage of the game, players interview the remaining applicants.
