Landing and Keeping a Job

Using the format of the sitcom The Office, this entertaining yet informative program illustrates the importance of transferable job skills: problem solving, communication, and teamwork. When the employees of Anders-McMillan hear about possible layoffs, they learn how their own experiences in volunteering, school, and extracurricular activities have helped them develop skills that can be used at any job. Grades 9 and up. Closed captioned. Color. 24 minutes. Learning ZoneXpress. ©2010.


"If you like The Office, you'll love this program - scripted, shot, and edited exactly like the NBC sitcom - which discusses an important aspect of landing and keeping a job: transferable job skills. An entertaining program that will also serve as an effective motivator, this is recommended."
Video Librarian July/August 2010

"An invaluable and instructive resource enhanced by included teaching materials, Secrets: Landing and Keeping a Job is very strongly recommended especially for school and public library collections, particularly given current tough economic times."
—James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review 2010

"Students had no problem being able to identify the top three transferable skills after watching the video. They were also able to describe work, school, community, and family experiences that can help individuals gain these skills."
—Susan Turgeson, FACS Teacher at Menomonie High School, Menomonie, WI

"It was a fun way to learn about transferable skills. I liked the format. I almost forgot I was watching an educational video."
–Junior at Menomonie High School, Menomonie, WI
