Step 1 About You

In this Step, we want to learn about you. You and your V-Partner can sit down together and go through the questions in this Step.

It is recommended before you start this section, you print the Jobseeker Workbook and the V-Partner Booklet from Getting Started.

Read below the questions for Step One. Your V-Partner can write your answers down using the Jobseeker Workbook or V-Partner Booklet. You also can use the ‘Answers and Script’ section found in the main menu. These will help later on.

We have some questions below for you to answer. Your V-Partner will ask you some questions too.

If you want a head start, feel free to write down some answers ahead of time. This may help you remember when you speaking with your V-Partner.

  • Stop at any point if a question gets a bit hard and go to another question.
  • Try to have an answer in each question if you can.
  • Don’t worry about having perfect answers or trying to guess what an employer wants from you.
  • This section is about the things your life has taught you. Later we will discuss how your life lessons could help an employer.
