This on-the-job documentary teaches students the 7 skills they need to be successful employees. Video follows real life teens as they tackle their first jobs—waiter, grocery clerk, ice cream shop scooper, cashier, garden nursery worker—and learn what it takes to be a success.
Good communication skills, leadership, adaptability, problem-solving, negotiation, computer literacy and the ability to juggle multiple demands are skills that will take teens from their first jobs through a lifetime of working. Each teen models these skills on the job; each boss talks about how mastery of these skills can help an employee move quickly up the ladder of success.
Viewers also learn why these skills are fundamental to success in any job and how they can be further developed, strengthened and transferred from beginning jobs to more complex jobs.
