Use It or Lose It is both a summary and an assessment. Complete the worksheet and think about the following questions:
- If your uncle came over tonight, sat down on the couch and said, “I really don’t think I like my job anymore,” what questions might you ask him?
- Is satisfaction with an internship different from satisfaction with a permanent job? If so, how?
This lesson should come after We CAN Get Satisfaction, What Do You Expect from a Job, and Sometimes We “Settle” Activity (optional).
Completion of Job Satisfaction - Use It or Lose It handout
This activity provides students with an opportunity to explore what is satisfying about their internships, either through personal experience or the experience of a colleague at the internship site.
This activity gives students an opportunity to reflect on their internship experiences and the key takeaways from related lessons, such as what skills, techniques, and concepts can be applied to college and future work.
