Hi Blake, this is a great question. First you have to decide what type of job you want, make a list of your talents so that you can create a resume and apply for jobs that can accommodate your schedule. If this will be your first job consider applying for jobs at fast food restaurants or grocery stores near your home. Check out the link below for more information and good luck with finding a job. I hope this information helps. https://www.wikihow.com/Get-Your-First-Job-(for-Teens)
Maybe you should look into a summer job most likely part time. I think you should check out seasonal careers at Miluakee Brewers website. But as Tom mentioned you have to have skills before you can find a position that can fit your objectives. If you have skills like problem solving, effective communication etc etc you should check out being a summer camp educator at Discovery World Ltd. I wish you the best on your journey sir.
When I was in high school I got a job at a restaurant as a hostess. Many of my friends got jobs as waiters or table bussers as a first job. It can often be difficult to find higher paying jobs without previous experience working for any type of business. I would highly recommend working at a restaurant a few days a week to build up your skills and resume. There is also good money in tips from a job like this that could surprise you!
Hi Blake. This will serve you well, please remember employers are looking to hire SKILLS. So one thing you might do immediately is to determine what you are good at doing right now. Most people can do some things better than other folks, how does that apply to you? Is there a place looking to hire these skills at the moment? So how do you get more? Volunteer for something that lights your fire. If you are volunteering at something you really care about, you will almost automatically develop additional life skills. Next as you are working on your list of skills of things you enjoy doing, start looking where these skills can apply. Find a company or companies in your area that do the kind of work where your skills would be helpful. Then! Call 'em up, tell them you are a student interested in the kind of work they do and ask if you can speak to someone about preparing for a career that field. Don't be shy about asking. Everyone was in your shoes at one point too. Most folks will give you a few minutes.
Good luck Blake.
Entry-level jobs that don't require a lot of experience and that are available in most cities:
- Restaurant host, bus boy, dish washer
- Fast-food restaurants
- Grocery store cashier, bag boy, stocker
- Retail sales (clothing stores, shoe stores, video game stores, anything in a shopping center) - some are hourly, some are commission-based
Most will allow you to move up within the company if you're good.
You can also go into business for yourself by flipping things (buying stuff at a low price from garage sales, flea markets, ebay, etc., and flipping it / selling it at a higher price somewhere else). Sometimes you can even find things for free (Facebook marketplace, helping neighbors move), and posting it online for a profit.
