What should be an important thing to know befor taking my first real job?
If it is your first real job, the best start is to follow your passion, it may not be easy, you may have to work towards it, and the rewards may not be what you expect right at the beginning, however, your passion will keep you focus and then you continue to build the experience which takes you to the next level.


How do I know that if a career is good for me?
The career is good for you if you are passionate about the field, it is related to your future growth and it gives you experiences you need to either pivot or continue the growth.

Yes you should have a resume With your grades being so good, You probably won't need a resume for a basic first part-time job unless the position is an internship. However, it will be useful for you to have a document ready to promote your background as you network with contacts or make in-person prospecting visits with employers. I would recommend checking into Duel enrollment in local community College also. The program allows you to receive college credits while in high. This enables you to explore job opportunities. This would look very good on a resume. Your resume should be organized and include details of your most relevant skills to the job you're applying to. Include anything that shows your positive character.
Highlight your relevant skills. Express your enthusiasm for employment. Display all contact information prominently. Use a helpful resume builder if needed.

Best of luck. ME

JOHN’s Answer

Hello:

"What should be an important thing to know befor taking my first real job?":
Accountability should be a value that you unwrap for the organization(s) you work for. Time management, respect for their time and yours, and always present your best foot forward to honor your own values on top of the establishment's want for their employees to symbolize their core values to represent their company.

"How do I know that if a career is good for me?": Depends on your thoughts on the duties of the organization. If such opposes your stance on a subject and/or values you live by - may be not a good alignment. Most though, up to you to choose if the job would be something you would be intrigued by. Sometimes just experiencing the positional time can help you endeavor through to other pathways. Learning, reading, maybe volunteering for various establishments can guide your mind to understand what you truly enjoy or wouldn't mind doing.

"When should I make my first resume?": Any time. Prior to having employment, your resume can have school activities on them, any helping you did at your own home for family and/or people you know (babysitting, chores, cleaning, etc.). Provides organizations that you have accountability, hard work, and various skillsets that intertwine within those agendas.

"Why do you think you fit the role of your job?": Any position can be a fit, especially when one looks at the life path as a present to gift themselves, and any position an unwrapping of a new adventure, educational atmosphere, and understanding of more of life. Embrace the enjoyment that living awakens, and most every step will be one to memorably find in your tomorrows.

Gratitude inside your pathways.

God Bless,

John German
