  • Real Speak: Interview native speakers at your school or in the local community about how they landed their current job. Why did they change jobs? Was there a time in their life that they had difficulty making ends meet? Did they have connections that helped them get a foot in the door at a company?

  • Internet Search: Conduct an Internet search to find three job offerings in your particular field. What are the minumum qualifications for each? What benefits, in additon to the salary, does the company provide?
