Hello,
Great question! I believe one of the best ways to gain more job experience is through volunteering. While I understand volunteering doesn't provide a financial transaction, it does offer you skills that are transferable and value both internal and external.
Once you learn more from those in the field you are interested in, you are setting yourself up for opportunities later as well. Many people who you volunteer for can provide recommendations letters and speak on your behalf. These employers you volunteer for can also end up hiring you and that would be an amazing goal to achieve.

Best of luck!!

A great way to gain work experience is to be flexible and open to roles. Remember every job is experience and each will provide you with tools that will be crucial for your next job!

Hi Haohua,

Volunteering is always helpful on your resume to eventually get a job. You could also look at freelance tutoring websites, where they find you the clients. In addition, taking up officer positions in clubs will also provide you with experience that you can leverage into helping with whatever job you apply for in the future.

Atul’s Answer

Are you in high school? Assuming you are, I suggest there are a few options to consider. If your parents are financially stable, offer volunteering or internship in the areas where you want to work.
If that is not the case, scan job openings in your area by using well-known websites and reach out to HR to know if they offer paid internships.
Lastly, if you are good at studies, you can be a tutor to help young children - sometimes it is a volunteering or paid service. You are building a great resume by doing this type of work and helping others who need assistance.
