Whenever the words home work are put next to each other, it is often assumed that reference is being made to schoolwork that is expected to be done at home. That is not the case in this daily writing prompt.
Your mission on this topic (if you choose to accept it) is to present a resume (of sorts) that details how well you've learned to work by describing some of the chores that your first employer (mom and dad) and your second employer (the school) have given you. Be prepared to discuss how your job performance with these two employers has prepared you for work in the real world.
Learning to Work is Important! Good parents teach their children responsibility by assigning chores at an early age.
Imagine applying for your first "real" job. It's a process that often involves some kind of interview. It's basically an opportunity for the person asking for work to persuade those who make that decision that they are right for the job.
The interview may go something like this:
The boss says, "How do I know you can work?"
And you would say....
The boss says, "What kind of student were you in school, did you always get your work done and turned in on time?"
And you would say...
The boss says, "Tell me what kind of responsibilities you were given at home while growing up, and how well they were completed."
And you would say...
Write a nice persuasive essay (in standard paragraph format) that uses your answers to the interview questions above as selling points to convince this place of business that you are the right person for the job.
