After exploration, decide on job, find out requirements, write cover letter, resume, request letters of recommendation. Mail or fax them to jobs. I created a cover letter, resume and letter of recommendation. I mailed it out. After I decided which 2 jobs to inquire about, I sent my cover letter, resume and letters of recommendation to both job locations. I put together a list of potential jobs that I may qualify for. I changed each template for each cover letter's location and information. I have one resume that fits both job descriptions. The letters of recommendation state skills I've gained through each volunteer position. A secretary, met with our group to proof read and help us perfect our cover letters and resumes. Each member mailed out letters to at least two job employers. We created a group Logo and business cards, so that our club could help other people with disabilities find jobs.
The interview I followed up on my letter, I went on a interview. I practiced answering my interview question list with my freind.Then I went on the interview. My group had a meeting where we practiced interviewing with one of our parents who is an employer. She went over all interview criteria, such as how to think about what to say, restate questions and how to dress. We also sent Thank You Notes, after having interviews.

Then they gave us a seminar to conduct practice interviews. We also were given a how to session on: Dress for success, positive attitude awareness, etiquette. We sent Thank You Notes.
