Thinking of him supersal, hope it's good news by now, our 17yr old is bleeding us dry until he starts earning (fingers crossed at end of August) so I feel your pain!! Well done to him for getting an interview even, there's not much for youngsters out there, sending positive vibes to you! xx

tell him that if they say this at his next interview i.e. more work experience then to offer to come in for a trial period (unpaid but a set time i.e. a week) so that he has the opportunity to show the employer what he can do. It will show the employer that he is serious about the job, how quick he can learn, but also he will get the some experience so if that job doesn't work out then he can talk about dealing with a difficult customer, handling cash, taking orders etc etc at his next interview.

Good luck to him. I told ds I'd been along the High Steet today and saw five adverts in shop/cafe windows and that he should apply but he has no interest whatsoever as he doesn't need any money hmm.

11 weeks off now GCSEs are practically over, I've said he needs to at least do some voluntary work.

No bleeding work ethic, I was working 8 hours a day in a cafe from when I was 13 because my parents weren't stupid or rich enough to sub me.

Too right. He did at least have the decency to say yesterday that when the exams are properly over next week he'll do housework every day and volunteer at the children's hospice once a week.
