Hi Vitaly! Depending on the age limits companies have for hiring, you can always apply. If they deny you based on your age, you can ask if the company would allow any shadowing opportunities to see what it's like to do that job for a few weeks. Also, you could ask people in the industry you want to be in what skills you should develop to become a valuable employee. Lastly, be sure to be good to yourself and know that rejection does not mean failure! :)

From experience, I know there are less opportunities for jobs when you are under 18, particularly when you are 16 & under. The reason for this is there are usually legal restrictions employers must follow if they hire a minor. However, you might be able to find something through your high school. High schools often have a career office with resources for finding a job or partner with businesses and organizations in placing students into jobs. You should also ask family and friends if they know of any places that are open to hiring minors.
