Lesson Plan

Professional References

To gain an understanding of the importance of professional references, class members engage in two projects. First, individuals examine an online review site (Yelp, for example), paying particular attention to the positive and negative referrals. The second activity focuses on who job seekers should and should not use as references and why.
