This two part resource teaches job seeking and workplace communication skills to ESL learners.

DVD scenarios present key topics, which are further explored through activities and listening exercises in two books.

Book 1 Getting a job follows Sam a young school leaver, and Olga, a recent arrival in Australia in their search for work. It focuses on topics such as writing resumes, telephoning about jobs, cold canvassing, networking and interview skills.

Book 2 Getting on with the job sees Sam and Olga in their new jobs, and looks at the workplace communication skills, behaviour and personal attributes valued by employers in Australia. Topics include following workplace instructions, socialising at work, negotiation and teamwork.
