Surveys show that parents play a more influential role in their children's career decision-making process than ever before. A parent offers years of professional experience, connections, and sound advice for students entering the professional realm for the first time. Here are some ways you can help.
Support Summer Internships
By encouraging your son or daughter to seek meaningful summer internships, you increase the chances that he or she will find early career satisfaction. It's a great way to get a realistic perspective of careers students might be considering, and to learn early on if an industry or field is a good match for their skills and personalities.
Make the Most of Academic Breaks
Urge them as well to maximize the use of their winter and spring breaks. Those present great opportunities for a short internship, informational interviews and even shadowing experiences with alumni.
