8 Tips for Parents

How to prepare your teen for work:

1.  Encourage your teen to investigate jobs and careers. Talk about work and your job at the dinner table.

2.  Stress to your teen that for now, school is their work.  Attendance is important.

3.  Explore with your teen, without being judgmental, her or his personal talents, strengths, likes and dislikes.

4.  Help your teen experience first hand, as many different jobs, businesses and professions as possible.  Explore job shadowing, mentoring, "Take Our Daughters to Work Day", internships, youth apprenticeships, cooperative education.

5.  Provide as many opportunities as you can for your student to learn technology.

6.  Pressure your schools to expose students to career choices.

7.  Guide your teenage toward acquiring skills.

8.  Talk to your teen about work and career as a goal for her or his education.

Job interviews close with the question with the same five words: "Do you have any questions?"  This is information taken from a Yahoo Financially Fit article. 


1. What do you enjoy about working here?

2. What are your goals for the company in the next two years?

3. What skills do I need to have most to help the team?

4. If I were hired, what would you like to see me achieve in my first three to six months on the job?

5. Why is this position vacant?

6. Do you have any reservations in hiring me?


 You'll want to be as prepared as possible for your job interview.  

 SIT DOWN AND THINK ABOUT THE JOB, your experience and skills, and the questions the employer is likely to ask you.

 IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE ON TIME GETTING TO THE INTERVIEW.  While you're there, be courteous, respectful, and natural.

 BODY LANGUAGE IS IMPORTANT TOO.  Make contact, smile and sit up straight.

 RESEARCH: You'll make a much better impression if you can show that you know something about your potential employer--and the rest of the world.
