Undertaking Job Development & Engaging Employers
The unit content provides candidates with a detailed understanding of the informational interview shift from Discovery to Job development. The candidate will move into assessing the potential opportunities and laying the foundation for job negotiation. This process begins with the populating of the list of 20 for each of the identified vocational themes. The candidate will then identify the unmet needs of a business and make clear that the job seeker appears to match the core work and culture of the business. If the job seekers skills and ideal conditions are matched informational interviews will be conducted to seek out potential areas for performance and quality improvement. This assessment of unmet needs within a business is essential to creating a unique and profitable job match of mutual benefit to employer and employee.
