Getting a job can be a great way to earn some money, gain valuable work experience, and get a sense of what you want to do in your future career.

Your after-school activities can teach you some of the job skills employers are looking for. These skills will serve you well when applying for your first job.

One of the best ways to find a job is by talking to people you know who can help you-use your good connections!

At a job interview it's important to make a good impression. Being polite and professional can help show you in the best light possible.

Doing your job well and being respectful of others is the best way to impress your employers (as well as your coworkers) and get the most out of your new job.
