CULAR 271 AD Work Experience: Getting the Job You Really Want 5th Edition paperback book by J. Michael Farr, Jistworks, Inc.

Course Content:
CULAR 271AD Work Experience: Food Services class will consist of one hour of lecture weekly during the spring and fall semesters.
The following topics may be discussed: Time Management, Stress Management, Resume Writing, Interviewing, Men & Women in
the Workforce, Organization Skills, Communication Skills, Work Issues, Careers, Career Assessment, Job Fairs & Placement,
Restaurant Startup and Growth, Culinary Issues, and Service. This information will be presented through lecture, class discussions,
videos, guest speakers, and internet access.

A student missing 20 percent of a course shall be dropped by the instructor. Five late attendances or early departures per semester will
result in a grade reduction.

Students must sign in/sign out on the attendance form. No student may sign in/out for another student.

It is the student’s responsibility to drop by the official deadline. If you wish to receive a refund, transfer enrollment fee, or
nonresident tuition from one class to another you must officially withdraw or transfer by the official deadline. The period depends on
the length of the class, regardless of when you enroll. If you wish to drop a class and not have a “W” on your record, you must drop by
the official deadline.

Students who officially withdraw by completing and signing a withdrawal form in registration or the Admissions Office with a date of
last attendance within the required drop deadline are considered as having never attended. Note: Students who withdraw or are
dropped from classes an excessive number of times are subjected to probation and dismissal.

*The grade of “C” or higher is required in CULAR 271AD Work Experience: Food Services. No “incompletes” are given for
grades in the Work Experience Program. If Work Experience is not completed, a student will receive an “F”. The employer
determines your worksite grade which counts for 50% of your final grade.

                                              Student Requirements / Program Guidelines

*All students enrolled in the VCWEE program must read, complete, sign and date a Student Liability Form. Work schedules (specific
days and hours) must be documented on your application (back of green form, #5). All liability issues between work-site/agency and
LBCC District must be agreed upon in writing prior to any student working.

Students must be enrolled in Work Experience by August 17, 2009 for semester-length classes.
See current class schedule for registration deadlines for late starting classes. You can access the electronic schedule of classes on the
college web site. http://schedule.lbcc.edu/

Check your registration receipt carefully! Make sure you are in one Work Experience Program for the semester and that the class
number on your receipt is correct. It is your responsibility to make sure you are enrolled correctly.

The Work Experience Program you have enrolled in should be directly related to and supplemental to the college courses in which
you are enrolled.

Semester requirements include:

*Resolve any liability issues prior to starting work.

*Successful completion of the VCWEE Program (which includes Work Experience and Work Experience Issues).

*Completion of the correct number of employment hours for the number of units enrolled in.

                                             Paid Employment              Volunteer
                   4 Units                     225 Hours                  180 Hours
                   3 Units                     150 Hours                  120 Hours
                   2 Unit                       75 Hours                           60 Hours

*Only hours worked during the Work Experience Program session you are enrolled in (time between start and end dates of the class)
can be counted for Work Experience credit. Students who enrolled after the start of the class can count hours worked toward Work
Experience credit, starting from the date he/she enrolled and not the start of the session.

*No transferring of classes after the class is over.

*The grade of “C” or higher is required in the Work Experience Program. The Work Experience Program consists of a combination of
Lab (Work Experience) and Lecture (Issues class). You have to successfully complete both to earn any credit. All students must be
employed, successfully complete the number of objectives (3) and hours required for the amount of units enrolled in.

*No “Incompletes” are given for grades in the Work Experience Program. Requirements have to be completed within the time frame
of the class.

*Enroll in only one Work Experience Program per semester. A student can enroll in a maximum of four semesters of the Work
Experience Program with the possibility of completing a maximum of 16 semester unit’s total. An exception to the maximum of four
semesters would be the Culinary Arts (CULAR) and Computer Applications & Office Technology (CAOTO) VCWEE Programs
because there is only one occupational work experience course offered in those fields a semester. In Culinary Arts you only have the
opportunity to complete two units per semester as only CULAR 271AD is offered each semester. In Computer Applications & Office
Technologies you would only have the opportunity to complete three units per semester as only CAOTO 272AD is offered. In the
above mentioned courses you would be able to take them more than the four semesters until you’ve had the opportunity to possibly
earn the maximum 16 units (or close to it).

*All required paperwork must be filled out completely and have appropriate signatures where needed. In preparing your time cards
make sure you write in the month the time card represents and the days of the month in the appropriate boxes on the card. It is usually
helpful to look at a calendar when filling the month and days in. Time cards have to show the specific work schedule for each day
worked. Example: If you worked from 8:00 am till 1:00 pm on August 27th/Wednesday, in the box on the time card that is for that
day you would write in 8:00am / 1:00 pm = 5. This shows the specific work schedule you worked for that day and the total hours
worked for that day. Record the total hours you work each week in the “Total Hrs per Week” box at the end of each week on the card.
After you have completed all the hours you will be working for that month, add the total hours you worked each week for the total
hours you worked for the month and record it in the “Total Hours for the Month Box.” Credit will not be given for any time cards that
are not legible. You should have one time card for each month of the class session. Do not put hours for two months on one card.
If you didn’t work every month of the session you will have a time card for that month (or months) with a notation on the card (or
cards) that no hours were worked that month. Time cards have to be readable, so hours can be checked. Make sure all hours are
accurate and totaled correctly on each card. At the end of each month your supervisor has to verify the hours you worked by signing
the card. Hours on any card that hasn’t been signed by your supervisor will not be counted toward your total hours worked. The
signature on the time card should be the same as the person you have listed on the front of the (green) application for supervisor and
the same person who signed the back of the pink work sheet as supervisor. Completed time card(s) should be turned into the
instructor each month. Make sure you are using your Work Experience time cards for the Work Experience Program. Don’t confuse
them with any other time cards. Please do not record any hours on time cards in military time.

*A minimum of Three On-The-Job Learning Objectives are required each semester. The objective form is to be used to submit the
objectives that you, the supervisor, and your instructor agree upon. Objectives must be job related, learned on-the-job, specific,
realistic, measurable, and attainable within the time frame of the class session. They must be within the scope of the job assignment,
but must reach beyond normal assigned duties. You are required to discuss your ideas with your supervisor and obtain his/her
assistance in establishing the objectives. The supervisor will be the one who evaluates your performance on your stated objectives.
All three objectives must be successfully completed to receive credit for the Work Experience Program. In developing on-the-job
learning (performance) objectives a uniform criteria and suggested format can be helpful in preparing a preliminary draft:

                  CRITERIA:         1. Job related / Specific
                                    2. Measureable
                                    3. Achievable within the semester
                                    4. Learned on-the-job

    FORMAT GUIDELINES:                       “My objective is to:_____”(What)
                                    “This will be measured by:_____”(How/method)
                                    “This will be accomplished by:_____”(When/date)
                                    “This will be evaluated by:_____”(Who/name)

Remember! College credit is given for accomplishing new or expanded learning experiences, not simply because of working. Some
examples of right and wrong objectives are attached.

*The Work Experience Program provides opportunities for students to acquire college credit for work experience obtained on-the -job.
Along with enrollment in the Work Experience Program, a student has to have at least one other class related to the discipline
in which the student is assigned.

*If you are Self-Employed: (Instructor approval is required) A Self-Employment Approval Form is required which you can obtain
from your instructor. You must identify a person who is approved by certificated personnel (instructor) to serve as the designated
employer representative. This representative cannot be your instructor, classmate, subordinate, you, or related to you. The
representative shall agree in writing to accept the following employer responsibilities: (1.) Assist the student in identifying new or
expanded on-the-job learning objectives. (2.) Assist in the evaluation of the student’s identified on-the-job learning objectives. (3.)
Validate hours worked (check total(s) of hrs. worked each month and sign time cards) (4.) Notify instructor of any change in work
status. Besides the responsibilities listed, the agreement should also contain the representative’s address, phone number and
relationship to business (if any). The agreement is to be signed and dated by the employer representative, instructor, and you. For
your convenience the agreement has been included in the Self-Employment Approval Form. When all is completed and approved the
form is to be attached to the back of the (green) application. Failure to turn in a completed approval form (with all the necessary
signatures) at the beginning of the semester can result in not being able to use self-employment as your job for the Work Experience
Program. Not all instructors will allow you to use self-employment as your job for work experience. It is up to the instructor’s

*In the (rare) event of Changing Jobs your instructor and supervisor are to be notified immediately. Approval is required before any
change can take place. A change in jobs means a change in objectives and a new set of paperwork has to be filled out and approved.

*If your job Supervisor Changes while you are in the program, you are to notify the instructor immediately so information about the
new supervisor can be noted on your paperwork. Failure to do this can result in a loss of hours and/or credit, due to another signature
on the time cards (or other paperwork) that has not been approved. Signatures should coincide throughout the paperwork unless a
change has occurred and the instructor has recorded this on your paperwork.

*If the instructor approves that you can use the hours from Two Jobs (as long as they are within the time line given for the class and
meet the criteria) to obtain enough hours for your units, there is to be two sets of paperwork (one complete set for each job) and a
minimum of three (3) different objectives for each job (= total of 6 different objectives). This means a student has to successfully
complete 6 different objectives to earn credit for the program. When using two jobs and one job is non-paid and the other is paid, you
would add the hours of both together to get your total hours worked. The amount of hours needed to qualify for units is determined by
the job where you worked the most hours.

Example: Non-paid = 40 hrs. + Paid. = 30 hrs. = Total 70 hrs. Non-paid
                        (qualifies for 1 unit Non-paid)

Example: Non-paid = 30 hrs. + Paid. = 40 hrs. = Total 70 hrs. Paid.
                        (qualifies for 0 units Paid)

*Minimum employment time for the following units of Work Experience is:
                      4 Units (work experience class)      12 weeks
                      3 Units (work experience class)       9 weeks
                      2 Units (work experience class)       6 weeks

It is up to the individual instructor’s discretion whether or not he/she wants to go by the above listed minimum employment time. The
instructor may feel that the above listed minimum employment time is not enough time to earn the units. In this case you will go by
the amount of time the instructor wants. It can be made to be more employment time, but not less. Make sure you are clear on what is
expected of you.

*Student Liability Form –This form is mandatory for all students to read, complete, sign and date prior to starting work.

All students are to be aware of Job-Site Injury Procedures.

*Risk Services will have forms for you to complete. The procedure to follow will be sent to your Instructor through Risk Services.

*Application – (green form / front side) All forms must be filled out completely. On the front page of your application under “Work
Experience Employment” (#3) it will ask for the name of your Supervisor. The person you list here has to be the same person who will
sign all your time cards, the contract and the back side of your learning objective work sheet as your Employment Supervisor.
Under (#4) it will ask for your Evaluator. The person you list here will be the same person you will list under “E” for all three
objectives on the learning objective form.
If you list the same person for Supervisor and Evaluator (#3 and #4), then that person is the one you will list under “E” for all three
objectives, who will sign the back side of the learning objective form as Employment Supervisor, will sign your contract, and sign all
your time cards.

In short – the name(s) listed must coincide throughout your paperwork with the signatures.

*Application – (green form / back side) On the back side of the form there are some questions that are usually answered wrong or not
at all. Listed below are descriptions of how these questions are to be answered:
Position Title (listed under #5) – is asking for the name of your job. Do not put intern or volunteer. Examples: office assistant,
athletic assistant, camera assistant, reporter, cook, teacher assistant, computer maintenance, cashier, accountant, advertiser, assistant
manager, sales associate, gardener, nursery worker, etc. What you write as your Position Title on your application form should be the
same thing you put on the front side of your learning objective work sheet as Position Title.

How long employed here? (Listed under #5) This question is asking for the amount of time (if any) you have been working at your

Date you enrolled in the Work Experience Program this semester? (Listed under #5) This question is asking for the date you
enrolled in this class.

Date you started working within this semester? (Listed under #5) This question is asking for the actual date you started your
employment within the semester you are enrolled in.

The reason for these questions is so it can be determined that you are using work hours within the start and end date
of the class when you are enrolled. Keep in mind if you enrolled late, hours you would use for the Work Experience Program would
start from the date you enrolled, not the start of the semester.

Be sure to check Paid or Volunteer, depending on if you are being paid or not for your employment.

Fill in # of hours you will be working weekly. If you are not sure, put an approximation.

Above #5 on the back of the green application write in your work schedule (specific days and hours). Any change in the days
or hours must be recorded. Please notify your instructor of any changes.

*Work Experience job duties - This is listed as #6 on the back of the application. Here it is asking for you to put down what you do at
work (please elaborate). What you write here should coincide with what you have on your Objective Work Sheet for Job Description.

*Directions and map to your place of employment - This question is listed on the second page of the application listed under #7. In
answering this question use LBCC (specify LAC or PCC) as your starting point. The question is asking for two things:
                           (1.) Write directions to your place of employment

                          (2.) Draw a map to your place of employment
               (Map and directions may be done on a computer and submitted by attaching the results to the application)

*Record of past employment - This is listed as #8 on the back side of the application form. It is asking you to account for any
employment you’ve had in the last two years. If you have not worked before, just put “No Past Employment.”

** After filling out both sides of the application completely, make sure you sign and date the back side of the form where indicated.

*Objective Form – Fill out both sides (front and back) of the pink form completely.
I have noted a few things students usually want clarification on to help you fill your form out correctly.

Position Title: Should be the same thing you listed on the back side of your application form (under #5) as Position Title. Do not
write intern or volunteer.

Job Description: Should be the same thing you listed on the back of your application form (under #6) as Job Duties.

Letter “C” under objectives one through three: Need a date within the semester you are enrolled that you are going to accomplish the
objective you have listed.

Letter “E” under objectives one through three: Only one person’s name (first and last) is to be listed here and it must be the same
name you listed on the front page of your application form as Evaluator.

** The back side of the objective form is to be signed by your Instructor and Employment Supervisor. Sometimes the Employment
Supervisor’s signature is not legible. Please print the name of your Supervisor below his/her signature if the signature is not readable.
The person who signs this form as the Employment Supervisor must be the same person you listed on the front of your application
form, as your Supervisor under the Work Experience Employment section.

*All instructors have time lines that have to be followed. It is important that you turn in your paperwork by the time lines you are
given. It is your responsibility to make sure your paperwork is in on time, legible, filled out completely, accurate, and has all the
required signatures. Only original forms (not copies) will be accepted by the Work Experience Office.

*Students who fail to meet the program requirements and have not dropped the course will be awarded the grade of “F”. It is the
student’s responsibility to withdraw from the course……not the instructors.
*Failure to meet any of these requirements can result in no credit for the Work Experience Program.

*Thank you for participating in the LBCC Vocational Cooperative Work Experience Program. If you have any questions, do not
hesitate to ask your Instructor or call Patricia Bergen at (562) 938-4938 or mailto:pbergen@lbcc.edu. The Vocational Cooperative
Work Experience Office is located at 4901 E. Carson, L.B., CA in room F106.

Examples of Learning Objectives

All objectives are to be on-the-job objectives. An on-the-job objective means the objectives is learned on the job.

Below are examples of many good objectives. However, no matter how admirable the objective, it should be stated in specific,
measurable terms. In each case the same objective is stated in two different ways. “A” is the correct way (specific and measurable)
and “B” is stated the wrong way as it is either too general (Vague/ Not specific) or not sufficiently measurable. All objectives are to
be learned on-the-job.

A) Prior to the end of the semester I will have constructed a web site consisting of at least 6 Display Ad layouts which have been used
by customers of the newspaper. My supervisor will evaluate my work.
B) I will learn to do layouts for newspaper display advertising.

A) I will improve communication with my clients through direct feed-back by asking clients how well I communicate with them and
keeping a record of their answers. My supervisor will check my record and this will be completed prior to the end of the semester.
B) I will improve communication between my clients and myself.

A) By ______(date within semester), I will take inventory of all stock items and make a list of items which have had no demand for 6
months or more and submit it to my supervisor.
B) I will take steps to weed out all dead and obsolete stock.

A) Prior to the end of the semester I will increase the number of maintenance follow-up reports from 2 to 4 per week and track them
on the computer for my supervisor’s review.
B) I’ll try to do more follow-up reports.

A) I will increase monthly sales by 10% by selling related products, increasing my product knowledge, and by studying various
“sales” oriented texts. My supervisor will evaluate through review of sales receipts and it will be completed by _____ (date within the
B) I will increase my sales each week.

                                                      Creating a Collegiate Environment
                                                          Long Beach City College
                                                          Office of Student Affairs

In The Classroom
Creating a proper teaching environment is the cornerstone of getting a good education. Everyone at Long Beach City College is
responsible for helping to create this environment, including students. Simple rules of courtesy apply.

    .    Respect for the Instructor - This means arriving on time, not leaving early, bringing appropriate materials, not speaking with
         other students while a lecture is in progress, not bringing food or drink to the classroom, not being loud, boisterous, or

    .    Respect for Other Students - This means not interfering with the rights of others to listen and participate, not being
         disrespectful, not using inappropriate language, or harassing others in any way.

    .    Academic Honesty - Lack of honesty in the classroom is considered a very serious offense. Any form of cheating on tests,
         turning in work which is not one's own (plagiarism), talking during tests, furnishing false information to instructors, or
         knowingly misrepresenting oneself to the College is grounds for disciplinary action. The consequences of cheating are
         severe and may include the possibility of expulsion.

    .    Instructor's Rights - An instructor has the right to remove a student from class at any time he/she considers a student's actions
         to be interfering with a proper collegiate environment. The instructor may also refer the incident to the Dean of Student
         Affairs for disciplinary action as warranted.

    .    Student's Rights - All students have a right to due process. If classroom conflicts occur, discuss them with your instructor
         during his/her office hour. Additional resources for help include the Department Head, Instructional Dean, and Dean of
         Student Affairs.

On The Campus
Like the classroom, creating a proper campus environment is also of great importance to assure academic and individual success. The
Board of Trustees has established campus-wide standards of student conduct and simple campus rules which are enforced at all times.
These are particularly important in large common areas such as the cafeteria, bookstore, vending, campus offices, College Center,
Student Center, Activities Center, campus quads, athletic areas, and other highly frequented areas.

Standards of Student Conduct

Dear Employer:

The student presenting this letter to you is a Long Beach City College student interested in participating in the Cooperative Work
Experience Education program. Cooperative Work Experience Education is a joint venture among employers, students, and Long
Beach City College. Its goal is to provide relevant, quality education, which results in benefits to all parties involved. A study of
employers who participated in cooperative work experience has shown that co-op students improve their productivity more rapidly
than regular employees do. Lowered retention is an additional cost benefit advantage employers gain by participating in the
Cooperative Work Experience Program. The student receives special career guidance; college credits, and develops three measurable
objectives, which include new or expanded responsibilities or learning opportunities that will improve skills on the job. This program
also helps the college keep abreast of current developments and expand relationships with industry and the community.

Following are the ways we are requesting you, the employer, to be involved:

By signing……A monthly time card (which the employee must fill out) verifying the employee’s work time.
By allowing…One telephone call and one short visit by the instructor to discuss with the employee’s immediate supervisor the
            employee’s measurable objectives and job performance.
By signing…..The performance objectives form indicating that you are in agreement with the tasks developed for the purpose of
            providing new or expanded responsibilities or learning opportunities that will improve the employee’s job performance
            during the semester.

If you have any questions please feel free to call my office at (562) 938-4502. Thank you for your participation.

Withdrawal from Class:

If you are enrolled in this class at the start of the semester but never attend class by the first census date of the class (see the deadlines
at http://admissions ), you will be considered a "No Show" and I will drop you from the class. In all other circumstances, if you
must withdraw for any reason, you are responsible for dropping the class through Admissions and Records or online. If for
some reason you decide to drop the class early in the semester and do not wish to receive a "W" grade on your transcript, you must go
to the Admissions and Records Office and drop the class by the date indicated as the last day to drop and receive a "W" (Again see
http://admissions.lbcc.edu) If you have not dropped the class as of this date, you will be assigned a letter grade (A,B,C,D,F) for the
semester, whether or not you attended class.
