Product Overview

Jason has had a string of bad luck: he was fired from his job, his car got repossessed, he had to move back in with his mother when he was unable to make rent on his apartment, and his girlfriend dumped him. He is feeling unmotivated and discouraged, but also recognizes—at his mother's insistence—that he needs to start contributing to the household. Following his mother's orders, he heads to the local strip mall seeking employment. How hard could it be to get a job, anyway?


Learning Objectives

This case is designed to be taught in a course for non-MBA students that covers following concepts: - The challenges encountered when searching for a job and planning strategies to mitigate them - The hurdles people of color and other marginalized people can face when looking for jobs - The value of different employment opportunities available to job seekers - The process of transferring experience and particular skills to available positions - The importance of displaying professional and appropriate behavior during the job-search process and potential interviews
