Rogelio’s Answer

Hi! I was definitely in your shoes as a high school student looking for a job. Unfortunately I did not land anything until my first year at college. If you have free time and want to be productive a job would definitely be a good idea! It can develop so many great skills and you will grow your network. I would personally not substitute it for sports or other high school activities if not needed. Don't be afraid to take any job! I have gained so many skills from different oddball jobs throughout my college career!

Getting a job during High School is a great idea. Yes, it will provide you financial resources to use during high school but it will additionally provide an opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people. you will need to consider your school homework to decide how many hour a week you can work!

Hello Dawit, thank you for your question. I would say the best time to start working would be around 17 years old. As for the other part of your question, I do think it's a good idea to work while in high school the only suggestion I would have about it is you wait until your senior year because you will only have a limited number of classes so that will give you more flexibility you will be able to work some days and not all nights. Best of luck

Hi Dawit,

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.
