This competition evaluates the understanding of employment procedures that a student will face in applying for positions in the occupational area for which he or she is training. The competition consists of three parts. The first is the receptionist’s preliminary evaluation. The second portion is the completion of an employment application, and the third portion is an in-depth interview.
