Think back to your first few job interviews. Did you know what to expect or say? Interviewing can be a stressful experience for teens looking for their first job—especially if they have learning and thinking differences. It requires certain skills that may be weak spots, like or focus. Plus, it’s unknown territory.

  • Why should we hire you?

  • What are you learning in your classes that will help you succeed in this position?

  • What are your strengths?
