Parents…Are Your Kids Prepared for Their Professional Life?

 

Parents, you know at some point, your children have to grow up. Some kids want to rush the process, others want to take their own sweet time to get there. What these high school kids must understand, like you do, that TIME waits for NOBODY. In the current political and sociological climate, these kids must take their future professional life far more serious or they will be left behind economically and socially.

Depending on your ethnicity, culture and economic situation, the kids have to be even more prepared for the risks and unexpected roadblocks in the professional environment, just for living in their own skin. The more preparation these kids have, the better off their future professional prospects will be. Sometimes I wish an experienced professional had taken me under their wings and showed me the ropes, so I would not have had to learn by being “baptized by fire”. I want your kids to not have to go through that, so here are four things they can do to start preparing:

1. Figure out what they really want to do or like doing professionally. They can start by using my FREE MentorShelly DREAM Career Guide to help them figure this out.

2. Create their first set of career marketing tools (resumes, letters of recommendations and cover letters). Keep in mind that high school kids may not have much
experience, but they can use what they know how to do now and letter of recommendation from their teachers, sport team leaders they may be involved with in school or community or from volunteer group leaders for activities they are involved. If your kids already have some of these career tools and need to review them, MentorShelly can help by offering Career Tools Review Service to assure the tools are working for them or for you as a parent in the professional
environment.

The kids need to be prepared for the job/career interviews. You can utilize sample questions on the internet or if you are looking for more targeted help with this for you and your kids, check out the interview audio series here to get the help you need.

Learn and utilize negotiations strategies once they are offered job opportunities. The negotiations may not apply in their first job but any jobs or career opportunities after that…they will absolutely need to understand what to say, what questions or ask and how to respond to future employers. If your kid or you struggle in this area, then schedule a Career Strategy Session, to make the most of the career opportunities.

To make sure your kids are ready for all the challenges they will face with growing up in such a changing environment, do your best to teach them early. The best way to give them the competitive edge in the professional environment is to provide the with the necessary career tools and strategies, so they can win economically.

Bet on Yourself, Professionally

Don’t be fearful of new opportunities that knock you out of your “comfort zone”. In this market climate where technology driven changes ultimately affect almost every industry directly or indirectly, you must step out on faith and BET ON YOURSELF!

Long gone are the days where people remain employed to the same company for 20, 30 or even 40 years….so believing in yourself, knowledge, skills and abilities may end up leading to unexpected opportunities for growth and working independently.

Be bold enough to step out on your own before it becomes a necessity versus a choice. You may end up venturing into entrepreneurship, sales or consulting based on what is going on in your industry.

To learn how to position yourself for professional growth and communicate your value in a professionally independent environment, go here.
