I am not very picky; I just want a job so I can see if I want to develop a further interest in it.
I also don’t mind too much if the pay is not that high.
The Career Doctor responds:
Well Erin you have a good attitude about finding a job. And I think it is a great idea to start thinking about a job — as long as your family thinks it is okay and it doesn’t interfere with your school work. Most states even have laws limiting the amount of hours teens can work in a given week.
While you didn’t specifically ask about a summer job I have written an article for teens looking for summer jobs. The same strategies I suggest in that article can apply to you now. So I encourage you to go read A Guide for Teens: How to Find a Summer Job.
Best of luck.
