Getting a first job in high school is a great idea, though it can be difficult to manage school, homework, extracurricular activities and your home life. It is important to work on your time management and prioritization skills to ensure you are not spreading yourself too thin. Remember to practice self-care and ease yourself into your first job so you do not get overwhelmed or burned out too quickly! Having a job in high school can be very beneficial in developing skills that jobs will look for on your resume in the future and showing colleges that you are a self-motivated go getter who is able to handle multiple responsibilities at once. As long as your academic performance or extracurricular activities are not significantly impacted in a negative way, getting a job in high school can prove to be a very rewarding experience where you meet new people, learn new skills and increase your responsibility. I would recommend getting a part time job while in school or starting a new job in the summer while you have a break from classes.
