Why Parents Should Encourage Children to Gain Work Experience Early!


The world is so different today from when we grew up.  The path that we took was for the most part linear: get a good education and you will find a good job. However, the market is very competitive today. What is going to give our children the upper edge that they need to come out on top of this competitive market?

Tune into this conversation with expert author Sandra Finkelstein where she discusses 4 key things all parents should know when it comes to the success of our children:

  • Understand how the world is very different today than it was when we were young
  • Realize the true value and importance of employment/volunteer opportunities for your child
  • Learn tips on how you can help your child begin the process of looking for volunteer positions, internships or paid work
  • Know the difference between your role as a parent and guide during your child’s career development process and their own
