You are getting ready for a job interview. Get ready, set ... go.

Rehearse Pretend you are the interviewer and interviewee and play out the interview.

Dress Wear nice and comfortable clothes.

Time Be there early.

Smile and relax Interviews are not school exams with 'right' or 'wrong' answers. They enable the employer to see if you could fit in with the job and the company's working style.

Here are a few activities you can research on this week's topic:

1 Summer jobs: what kinds of jobs could you do? What wages do they offer? How can you apply? What will they bring you in terms of experience?

2 What are you fit to do? Find out what you really like doing and are good at doing.

3 Interview people: if you have a few jobs in mind, ask adults who do these jobs why they like their jobs, what they don't like, what a typical working day is like and what they studied at school.
