Recently, I posted a video with tips on how to help adult children living at home find a job. Since this is a hot topic, I’ve just posted an article with some more details and tips on helping your adult children in the job hunt, and I wanted to share it with you. You can find the full article on my website here.
If you just want the quick ‘n dirty version, here are the key tips:
1. Help your adult child create a resume (but do NOT write it for them).
2. Offer job-searching advice (since your kid may not know how to look for a job beyond searching the Web).
3. Work your network (but get your adult child to make contact on their own).
4. The most important tip: Do not submit your child’s resume to employers, or follow up with employers on your adult child’s behalf.
