    Job Seeking Tips and Advice

    Job Seeking Tips for Teens

    Are you looking for your first job? Here are some hints to help you with your search.
    • Inquire about the job yourself, rather than having a parent ask. It shows that you are interested in the job, not just applying because your folks want you to work.
    • Attend alone when you apply. Nothing discourages a prospective employer more than a group of friends, making a ton of noise and discussing the possibility of working together.
    • Pay careful attention to details when completing the application. Some jobs are detail-oriented, and the employer will eliminate candidates who fill out the form incorrectly.
    • Arrive on time for your interview. If you cannot help being late, call before your scheduled time to let the interviewer know. This shows attendance reliability.
    • Use only formal writing on your application. Avoid slang expressions and web abbreviations such as "lol" and smiley faces.
    • Creating a resume shows a great deal of interest in working. Ask at the library information desk for books on writing resumes.
    • If you need your parents for transportation to and from work discuss with them what days and times they will be available to drive you, before your interview. Then, you can be accurate when you tell your interviewer when you are available.
    • If you need certain days of the week for family, religious or extracurricular activity obligations, tell your employer during the interview.
    • Remember, asking about the salary before you are offered a position discourages some employers.
    • Dress nicely for your interview, even if the work dress code is casual. If you do not have a suit, dress neatly and avoid jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, and anything with holes.
    • Avoid anything provocative or with slogans that might offend some people. Do not wear a garment that is sleeveless or shows your navel. You may ask the employer about the dress code during the interview or when offered a position.
    • Consider the time you need for homework and studying when telling the interviewer the hours you are available to work.
    • A website that may be helpful is TeenJobSection.com.
