Här kommer sista delen i vårt tema #ourfuturejobs. Första delen kan du hitta här. #ourfuturejobs part 1.
Eleverna har nu varit två veckor på PRAO och det var dags för dem att i grupp arbeta med att ta fram jobb som de tror att vi kommer att arbeta med 2057. Eleverna arbetade i grupper om 3-4 elever och alla diskussioner var självklart på engelska. Det var fritt fram för eleverna att skapa precis vilka jobb som helst. Arbetet med att skapa de nya jobben tog en lektion ungefär.
Nedan är upplägget så som jag gjorde det med min 8a:
#ourfuturejobs part 3
Today your groups will present the jobs you have created.
1. Pretend that you are the managing directors of a company. This company has 3-4 managing directors! You have created a new job that you would like to introduce. You hope that many people will be interested in working with you and you need to make your presentation interesting.
2. The rest of the class will listen to your presentation and they pretend to be interested in your job. You have to take notes to remember which job you would like to get. You have to ask questions about the job to be able to understand if the job is something that you are interested in.
(We are 20 students and the presentations and questions lasted about one lesson. Every group presented their job in front of the class and it felt ok for them.)
You are going to apply for one of the future jobs we created in class. You will need to write a formal cover letter, but also create something that draws attention to you. Why should YOU be employed?
– Write a formal cover letter. You write in school, and not at home.
– Create a Videolog where you talk about yourself and show the employer why you are the best person to hire! (Vlog is ok to create at home)
Cover letter: …
How to write a formal cover letter?
- First of all, discuss the questions below in your groups.
Take a look at the picture below:
How does the letter start?
How does the letter end?
How does the author present herself?
Would you like to employ this person? Motivate why/why not.
- We will then, together in class, take a look at the text and talk about the questions.
- You have written a cover letter during your Swedish lessons, remember?
THE BASIC ELEMENTS OF A COVER LETTER
- Greeting: Address your cover letter to the proper person.
- Opening: Write a personable, inviting opening paragraph that highlights how your skills are a perfect fit for the job.
- Hook: Highlight your past achievements as they relate to the job you’re applying for.
- Skills: Highlight additional relevant skills, such as computer languages or certifications.
- Close: Briefly recap your strengths as a candidate, and include your contact information. (monster.com)
