Three Tips for Youth Work Job Seekers

A few weeks ago I started offering free youth worker job coaching for people who have lost their jobs or are searching for jobs working with young people. Since I began I have talked with 20 people from across the US and Canada. 
Here are a few tips I’ve pulled together that keep emerging in those conversations:
  1. Speak in certain tones about your experience. Let the interviewer know that you know about who you are, what you’ve done, and what you’re capable of doing. 
  2. Create a personal narrative. You have a great story to share – make sure you tell it!
  3. Dream of the world you want to work for, and dream out loud! Its important for anyone who works with young people to have a personal vision for the world they want to live in. Not some fluffy, flowery, impossible thing, but definitely a vision. Share it, and let your interviewer know you’re in it to win it.
Hope these might help you! Give me a call if you’re interested in a free session yourself!
