Tips to Help Your Teen Prepare for Their First Interview

    The first interview is a significant milestone for your teenager as it helps them find out if they are ready to take on the world of work. In addition, it is a chance for them to make a good impression and show that they can handle the responsibilities of a job.

Since it’s such a big step, many parents are trying their best to get involved in preparing their children for this next step. If your teen has an extensive interview coming, you can do a few things to help them prepare for it – and here are several of the best tips to assist you and your teenager so that they can make the most out of their time to shine.

Help Them to Pick Out an Outfit 

When it’s time for your teen to start looking for a job, they might need your help picking out an outfit. This is crucial not only because teenagers might be embarrassed by their choices but also because it will help them feel confident and comfortable in front of their interviewer.

When they are ready to go out, there are some things you should keep in mind when helping them pick out an outfit. First, make sure that the clothes are appropriate and presentable for the interview, with the help of dry cleaning in Croydon or a similar service in your local area. 

You don’t want your teen to wear something that isn’t professional or attire that will distract from their interview or make them feel uncomfortable during their first meeting with the company. Also, if they are interviewing with an employer that doesn’t have a dress code, you should still encourage your teen to dress up more – appearances truly are important when making first impressions.

Do Research On the Company 

The first interview is an opportunity for potential employees to learn more about the company and their career paths. It's also a chance for employers to get a sense of whether they want to hire someone or not. For both sides to have a successful experience, it's necessary for both parties involved in the interview process to research each other before meeting in person.

For this reason, you must help your teen research the company to understand more about it. Doing so will give them a clear understanding of what the company does and help them understand what the interviewer is asking them. It will also help prepare them for any questions that the interviewer might ask.

Practice With Them 

Since their first job interview is often a nerve-wracking experience for teenagers, they need all the support they can get. Practicing their interviewing skills and learning how to be more confident in themselves would help them control their anxiety a little easier. 

The more you practice with your teen, going through questions that might come up in their interview, the more comfortable they will become with the interview process. Fortunately, humans now live in a time where they can get mock interview questions online to make this practice even more accessible. 

Go Through Feedback Questions 

Finally, it’s essential to go through the feedback questions with your teenager before the first interview in order to know what to expect. It will also give them an excellent position to start on because it will show the interviewer that your teenager is confident and upfront with their questions.

Remember that preparation for their first interview will set a template for the rest of their lives, and it is more likely that they will use what you’ve taught them as they continue to go for more interviews in the future.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
