Here are skills she’ll need to
make sure she keeps the job:
1. Be dependable. Make sure your teen knows that her boss is counting on her. If she must miss work, make sure she knows to call her employer ahead of time.
2. Be punctual. When employees don’t show up, someone else has to do their job. Make sure your teen arrives on time and stays until her shift is over.
3. Be enthusiastic. Some parts of all jobs are boring. Teach your teen to focus on the good parts of the job . . . and accept the rest as part of life.
4. Ask questions. No one expects your teen to know everything about the job on his first day. If there is something he doesn’t understand, encourage him to ask his boss or supervisor.
