Excellent resources to help prepare students for the Job Interview CDE can be found on university career services websites. Many of them provide detailed descriptions for resumes and cover letters, along with helpful suggestions, examples, and a list of action verbs to use. Interview hints and sample questions are usually available as well. Some of the career services websites I view regularly are:

University of Georgia: http://www.career.uga.edu/

Oklahoma State University: http://www.hireosugrads.com/StudentsAlumni/

Purdue University: https://www.cco.purdue.edu/Services/

Peen State University: http://studentaffairs.psu.edu/career/students/

In addition, be sure to review and study the scorecards for each activity in the Job Interview CDE. We use the scorecards in the National FFA Job Interview CDE guidelines that can be downloaded from the FFA website. https://www.ffa.org/documents/cde_jobinterview_2012.pdf

Please don't hesitate to contact me or your region contact if you have any questions about the Job Interview CDE.
