The best way to find this type of job is through networking. Talk to friends in your classes and find out if they know anyone or have parents that could connect you with people for a job. If you are a part of clubs at school the professors may also have insight as well as leads for networking. You might also want to look at job boards for internships. An internship is the way to get your foot in the door and then impress them enough to hire you! Go to multiple websites like the UN and see if there are internships or job postings that might fit your experience/education. I wish you the best of luck in your career! Always remember that networking is the key to getting future jobs so never burn bridges and always stay in touch with people. You never know when you will be looking for a new job down the road. Best of luck, stay positive and enjoy the ride! Christy

A good referral goes a long way, it is not only what you know but who you know. When you think of references you would want to think of current manager, teachers, community service team leads if you have volunteered for any campaigns, as well as lawyers, and current employees at the place of business you wish to work. If you dont have any of the above I would say feel out the application and see what happens. A good question before you do, what is going to set you aside from the other prospects? Keep in mind your "digital footprint" lets potential employers know some of you characteristics and personal activity so before you submit make sure your social media pages are clean and positive and see if someone can help with a letter of recommendation.

If you have any volunteer experience, you can use this as a reference and as a part of your resume. Any organizations that you belong to in school are also good resources. As many others have said, it is all about who you know. Teachers, mentors, administrators are your school, leaders of any group or organization that you may belong to can be a great resource! Happy job hunting!

you can get a reference from a teacher as they are a good judge of what you are capable of. You can also reach out to your community leaders or ever neighbours who are professionals.
