NOTE: This Career Exploration event is utilized AFTER students complete a résumé, cover letter, interview questions, and research the company of choice for a potential job. The resources for those specific lessons are listed below in the


Career Ready Education TPT store:













The objective for the event is to prepare students in the Business, Finance and Marketing sector, while focusing on performance-based skills that will be valuable to any career. Various business community individuals are chosen by the teacher and they assist with the implementation of this event.

There are three education sessions simultaneously transpiring throughout a one-hour time frame:

1. Interviewing

2. Video Interviewing

3. Job Offer Analogy

All business community participants interview students, as well as, lead a video interviewing and a job offer analogy seminar within 1 hour. Lesson plans are provided for all Business Community Volunteers and are located in this resource. See pages 6-7 for agendas.

All business participants currently understand what candidates need in order to obtain jobs in the marketplace and are able to provide guidance and support for the students. Eva Foxwell decided to integrate the business community for a “REAL WORLD” experience, thus allowing more time for the finance portion of her curriculum. Mrs. Foxwell’s curriculum provides 100% hands on learning that all students will be able to utilize for the rest of their lives. Her overall program is based on the understanding of what skills students need to perform at a high levels and encompasses written and oral communication skills, organization awareness, actively listening, problem solving, critical thinking, project analogies, collaboration, effective time management, intermediate Microsoft Office skills, business ethics and professionalism in the workplace. She continues to consistently improve her programs to provide a high-level education environment for her students.

Praise for Eva Foxwell’s Methodology and Outcomes

Business Technology at BSS has given my son real life, applicable skills that will help him tremendously in his academic and professional life, and have already been invaluable in the high school application process.  Eva Foxwell’s dedication to her students and genuine desire for them to succeed is incredibly impressive; the respect that she so naturally earns from her students truly brings out the best in them. Proud BSS Parent


Mrs. Foxwell gave my son a confidence I had never seen before! She established a trust with him, but with all her students. She was not just their teacher, she was and is a trusted and safe person they can go and talk to about anything! My son is now in high school and frequently brings up Mrs. Foxwell's class. He shakes the hands of others with confidence and speaks to others with conviction. This is all due to the way Mrs. Foxwell taught them. She gets to know her students (her kids) and their families. I have been very blessed to get to know her and very thankful my son had her as a teacher. Proud BSS Parent


Business Technology has given my daughter tools that she will utilize throughout her entire life.  The material is presented in a" Real World" way.  There are direct links made by class as to how this sort of organization and process will help them better succeed and achieve their goals.  For my daughter in particular, learning how to talk to strangers in a professional, confident demeanor was priceless.  She now feels more self-assured and I can see the confidence spilling over into other areas of her academic and extracurricular life. Proud BSS Parent


Mrs. Foxwell has brought real world experiences directly to our children. My daughter is a more confident public speaker, prepared for interviews, and has an understanding of day to day business such as balancing a check book and creating and maintaining a budget for both personal and business expenses.  I wish I had the same opportunities my daughter has had by being a student of Eva Foxwell and Business Technology at Brandywine Springs School. Proud BSS Parent
