Transcript

When you search for a new job, you might *first* think about how much money you could earn, or what work experience you have had in the past.

But other elements are important, too.

You may have family obligations that require a flexible work schedule.

You may be looking to start a whole new career.

Or maybe English is your second language.

You may want to consider the area where you live, like what kinds of jobs are available, which jobs pay the most, or which jobs offer certain benefits.

These factors determine which jobs you look for, as well as *how* you look for them.

While every job seeker has specific needs and wants, you can make finding a job easier by searching for advice on the internet and sharing information with others.

In this activity, you will research tips for finding job opportunities in your area.

You will brainstorm some of the goals *you* have for *your* next job.

You will create a job search guide in Google Slides to collect the information you found.

Google Slides is an application that helps you create and edit visual presentations to share information with others.

Then, you will share your tips with others to create a class presentation.

By the end of this activity, you will have created a collection of slides with tips about how to get a job in your area that you *and* your class can use.

Others in this class may learn from the tips you share and you may learn from their tips as well.

To start, open a new tab in Google Chrome, or go to google dot com.

Then, open Google Drive.

Google Drive stores the files you create in Google applications, as well as files that are shared with you.

These files are *not* stored on your computer.

They are stored privately on the internet.

You can access them from *any* computer or mobile device with an internet connection after signing in to your Google account.

Create a new Slides presentation.

Click “New,” then select “Google Slides” and “blank presentation.”

Name your presentation “Job Guide.”

This is the filename that will appear in Google Drive.

Your presentation will automatically *save* in Google Drive every time you make updates.

There’s no need to save while you’re working.

Once you’ve created and named a new Google Slides presentation, move on to the next video to start writing your job guide.

Now, it’s your turn: Create a new Slides presentation and rename it “Job Guide.”

Then move on to the next video.
