What is the difference between an internship and a volunteer job?

I am a high school student completing my sophomore year and looking for a summer job. Is it better to search for internship opportunities or volunteer opportunities since I have no work experience? #internships #volunteering #first-job #high-school-students #summer-internship...

Should I ask for a salary for a volunteer position?

I am a high school student seeking a summer job. Because I have no work experience, should I apply for volunteer jobs and is it possible to get a paid volunteer position? I noticed that intern positions seem to have a salary but volunteer positions do not. If I volunteer and get experience,...

How do I know if a job posting is a scam or not?

I am a high school student and new at applying for jobs. How much information should I share on my resume or over the phone? How do I know that this person is really asking questions about a legitimate job opportunity and protect myself from identity theft? #resume #data-privacy...

I'm ready to work at my first summer job as a high school student and will have completed the 10th grade. I have a resume, but I do not have a work permit. Should I have my school sign a work permit even though I do not have a job yet? Is there anything else I should do to prepare for my...

Will hospitals hire high school students to work over the summer?

I'm a high school sophomore and very interested in science but I'm not sure if I want to go into medicine or not. I thought working at a hospital over the summer might give me some good ideas. Do hospitals allow 16-year-olds to work with patients? #medicine #science #high-school-students...

Is there a "season" or "cycle" when employers post summer jobs for high school students?

It's February and school ends in mid-June. Should I start applying for jobs now, or is it too early? Do employer's start looking for summer help in the spring, or do they wait until closer to June? #hiring #summer-jobs #high-school-students #employers #summer-internship #high-school-jobs...

How do I narrow my search focus for jobs?

I'm not sure what kind of job that I'm qualified to do since I have no work experience? Should I apply to any job that interests me? It seems like all the intern jobs are for college students and I am a high school student looking for a summer job. #student #job-search #first-job #summer-jobs...
