Young Black Teens

March 17, 2010

It is hard for young black teens to get a job because of first impressions of the interviewer. Another reason is that they don’t talk professionally and don’t dress for the interview. Young black teens don’t dress professionally when going into an interview because some of them will wear baggy jeans and don’t get dressed up. Some of them will come in with a hat on.

Black teens also don’t talk professionally because they will talk in slang to the interviewer. Some of them will just say “yea” and “uh-huh” to everything. Several things black teens can change when the interviewer is making a first impression are that they can say good morning or afternoon to them. They also give eye contact and shake hands.
