World of Work
In this fun contest, you pretend you are applying for a job. The goal is to prepare you to actually apply for the job you are interviewing for in this contest.
√ You will submit an application and participate in an interview, just like you would in "the real world".
√ You need to come prepared with a job description, job application, and resume.
√ All information you present to the judges needs to be factual. Don't pretend to possess skills you don't have.
You will be judged on how presentable the forms look, your appearance, your non-verbal communication, and your interview answers.
