Hello Daysha,

I think looking for a full time or part time job have similar steps:
#1 Expectations for the role
Start by determining what are you trying to get out of this part time job (money, experience, both, more, else, etc.), what kind of job do you want? and, what type of roles? what kind of industry? what size of company?
Your searches will be a lot more targeted and successful if you determine the answers to these questions first.

#2 Expand your network
Base on #1 you will be able to look into expending your network and talking to the right people. Networking is very important for landing a job, whether it is for career advice, job or company fit, or actual references.
- Current network: school, family and friends, past jobs, etc. anyone can have an opportunity or a reference.
- Social Media (LinkedIn, Glassdoor, etc.): always a good way to start is to have an updated resume, cover letter, and professional profile. You can also reach out directly to people on these network and ask for a virtual meet & greet.
- Meetups: Local meetups are the best to talk to people with the same aspirations you have, you can segment by group type, industry, hobbies, etc. there are a lot of networking
- Volunteering: Hit or miss but you will always meet local professionals while volunteering and even if they don't know of a job, they might know someone who does.

#3 Apply and Interview
- Strong from your updated resume and network, look for advices and a reference into target companies (if possible)
- Apply and get ready for interviews (it sometimes takes a while to get one but they will come)
- Interview and come prepared, interviews are hard to get and you want to show your best self. Start prepping the answers to the most common questions (tell me about yourself, etc.), you will come more confident and it will show!

Hope this helps,
Cheers

Kristen’s Answer

Hello,
I would start looking into Co-op programs at your High School. Depending on where your interest lies, there are many opportunities (Business, Engineering, Automotive, Health Care, etc). These are terrific opportunities to get some real-world experience on your resume, credit in High School, and may help guide your interest or college major if that is the path you seek. Co-op programs are typically paid, and the schedule is typically 1/2 day at school & a 1/2 at work during your senior year. These co-op opportunities often extend through the summer & sometimes even extend beyond that (internships, etc.). Best of luck in your part-time job search.

Ask your School Teacher to help you connect with me Pen Pal Teacher at https://www.ePals.com
Then your Teacher reads my ePals profile and connects with me.
Your teacher then registers you as a student member at; https://www.ePals.com
Your teacher connects with me at My Class "Welcome to Basic A1. Reading & Writing ESL Classes"
Then you practice Reading & Writing English with other students...
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Keep moving forward!
Best wishes!
Thanks!
