Teach job etiquette

Dear Sir,

I am finding with a lot of students entering the work force or doing summer jobs, haven't any idea about job etiquette. Obviously they are not learning it at home, not even common manners. So I think we have to introduce it into the school curriculum. After all wasn't school created to prepare students for the work force? As a former teacher, I would start at ten years old. One child could act as the employer and one the potential employee. For teenagers; it would already be too late as they would have already gained “attitude”. They must be taught to make time, every time. Also that the world does not owe them a job and they are not doing their employer a favour by showing up.

They need to prove to their employer that they are worth their pay cheque and maybe work toward a promotion. Talking back to the boss is never an option. Trying to do the least amount of work will keep you in the position you are in, for a very long time, or could lose you, your job. Always being kind and courteous to your customers or clients, for in the end they are the ones who pay your pay cheque. It doesn't matter if students come from private or public schools, university or not, all of them need job etiquette training!
