Finding a Job

  • When looking for a job it’s best to have a plan before even starting your search. Here are somethings you should think about when creating your plan that will help you find the right job for you.
    • Location: How far are you willing to travel to and from your job?
    • Transportation: If you don’t own a car, is your job close to public transportation such as the bus or a train?
    • Availability: Knowing what time you are available to work is important, especially if you are in high school or going to college.
    • Job Type: Thinking about the kind of job you want is important. You don’t want to apply for a job in a field that you’re not going to like. For example, if you know you don’t want to work in the food industry then applying for a job at a fast food restaurant may not be a good idea.
