The right

work experience can help children mature, develop perspective . . . and do better in school.

Parents can help prepare students for work interviews by asking questions that many potential employers ask. These include:

• Why do you want to work for this company?

• What are your career goals and how will this position help you achieve these goals?

• What are your strong points (skills/strengths/abilities)?

• What are your weaknesses or limitations?

• How would you describe the way you work with others?

• Why should I hire you for this job rather than anyone else?

• What kind of salary are you looking for?
