What's It Like to Work in An Office?

A FREE ten-task crash course in the cubicle life

Are you a high school student thinking about your future and wondering whether working in an office is for you? Are you an educator looking for practical exercises to complement your business class curriculum? Or maybe you're a parent who simply wants your teen to understand how to prepare for their future, whether that includes college or not?

Based on the Workplace Prep Program for High Schools (formerly the Mock Office High School Program, an in-classroom workplace readiness experience for teens), What's It Like to Work In An Office? is a crash course that will give teens a glimpse into what it can be like at a regular 9 to 5 office job (Note: this is not everyone's personal experience).

Once the participant registers for the course, they can consider themselves an employee of Dreamweaver Talent Management, a fictitious entertainment management firm with a roster of clients of various literary, acting and musical talents.

The tasks included in the lesson will take students through a series of assignments that will challenge them to think and communicate in a way that demonstrates their grasp of business classroom academics--while having a little fun along the way.

Note: Students: Complete the assignments for your personal use...or approach your teacher to ask about turning them in for extra credit! Instructors: Add the assignments to your in-class curriculum as a way to gauge your students' understanding of your lesson plan!

Chela Hardy has been working in an office environment since she was fifteen years old. She credits those experiences, along with her high school business classes, as the training ground for her career success as both an administrative employee and an administrative consultant (through AskChela) to entrepreneurs, speakers, and authors. Additional roles as a workshop leader and Adult Ed instructor (for Loudoun Count Public Schools) have recently led to her creating the Workplace Preparatory School for Teens (inspired by her Workplace Prep Program for High Schools).

Chela is also a published author, writing under the pseudonym Kamichi Jackson. Her most recent book, a young adult novel entitled K My Name Is Kendra, has been called a powerful novel that “gets right to the essence of what a young adult novel should be” by Publishers Weekly as part of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition and has steadily garnered rave reviews since its release.

Chela was born and raised in Connecticut but now lives, works, writes, and plays in Northern Virginia/DC Metro.
