You Can't Get a Second Chance to Make a First Impression

Nobody's called me back... I think it's this recession! Set against the backdrop of the fictitious "JR THOMPSON COMPANY," the organization needs to do some hiring and this outrageously humorous video gives a glimpse into the inner workings of a human resource manager's mind. From screening job applications, to personal appearance, the HR manager's nightmare turns into a series of valuable lessons for students who will someday be applying for work.

Lessons include: Confirm the name, time and place for an appointment, find out about the company, don't have sticky hands, make sure you're neat and clean, don't wear offensive clothing or saggy pants, avoid excessively tight, suggestive clothing and heavy makeup, don't smoke or chew gum during an interview, and never bring a cell phone, pager, friend or relative into an interview, among many other valuable lessons. You should know your potential employer and never assume that how you look doesn't make a difference!

Ideal for Middle and High School Students ages 13-18
