Understanding the Benefits of a Parent/Child Job Search

Printable Version PDF Version Email to a Friend
Are you someone who needs to look for a new career? Is your job hunt turning into something that is going on and on? When you are looking at jobs, human resources professionals will tell you to leverage any sort of advantage that you have, and whether you are looking for jobs in HR or in HR employment or not, this is something to look into.

Jobs for HR and HR jobs in general all tell you that you need to network, but did you know that you might gain a lot from networking with your children? The changing job market has put baby boomers into the job pool and they are often working side by side with the members of Generation X and Generation Y. If you want to get the best jobs, human resources suggests joining forces.

When you are looking for the right kind of job, how can parents help their children? One thing that baby boomers tend to have is experience. They know what the older and more established firms are looking for, and they are going to know what to show the older firms and what not to show them! For instance, if you are wondering whether you should have some material online, it is time for you to ask your parents what they think. How do they feel about the professional quality of your work and what they can do? Similarly, you will also find that the kids of the previous generation are going to know about the start ups and the kind of burgeoning businesses that are going to be a big part of the scene to come.

If you are on the job search with a parent or if you are a parent who is looking for a job in tandem with your child, take some time and scout things out with them. Remember that pooling your resources can be something that makes a huge difference to the way that you are moving forward and you will also find that you are in a place where you need to look into what your options are going to be. Get together and look at the different kind of jobs that are being offered. How do you feel about these jobs and how do they feel about them? Discuss between yourselves what makes these jobs so wonderful and what would make them an automatic rejection for you.

One thing that parents and children can learn from each other is how different jobs might suit them. For instance, if you are someone who only looks at the money end of the things, you are going to find that you also need to look at the fringe benefits and the perks that come with the position. Some advantages are not tangible and at the end of the day, you will soon discover that every new bit of information can help!
