Whatever summer jobs your children had this summer, it's important to keep track of some vital information. It doesn't matter if the job was paid or volunteer, the experience can be included in a future resume or college application.
Write down all important information from the summer job on my Work Experience Log. If you don't do it now, you may forget some of the information later. Download the printable form here:
This log can be filled out now with any information they can collect. The form has language that your children can understand with commonly used application titles in ( ). This will help them to retreive this information in the future and know where to put it when they are trying to fill out those applications.
Save this Work Experience Log in a plastic sleeve in their award binder. Keep anything else they have related to this job on the back side of the log. You may have an employment contract, co-worker list, etc. If you haven't started an award binder, please read Keeping Children's Awards.
