Looking for Youth Summer Jobs?.While some teenagers are enjoying the hot summer sun, many are looking for youth summer jobs.
The key is planning. Even if you are still a few months away from summer vacation, you must already have decided whether you will take a youth summer job or spend this summer like all summers you had before. After which, you must find ways to land the perfect summer job.
Decide what you want to expect this summer. Search for youth summer jobs that qualify on the tentative qualifications you have set for yourself. Say, the type of the job, the salary, the location, and the hours you want to work. Make these qualifications very flexible since it would be hard to find good summer jobs that would really address your expectations. You may not even find youth summer jobs that would meet your criteria. But given the existing situation for employment today, you could bet of finding some that might meet as many of your expectations as possible.
Look for youth summer jobs in the internet, newspaper advertisements and directly approaching business establishments. These would give you good leads towards a summer job.
Second, line your expectations for job with the ones you have with yourself. Analyze what you have, what you could offer the company you want to work for and what you might be able to develop for the mutual benefit of the company and yourself. What are your skills that could be most useful with the type of the summer job you are hunting and what are the talents that might be put to use. Also, see what types of jobs that could best use your resources.
Be prepared to know also the kinds of works you will be willing outside the specs of your job. Further, include in your self analysis the things you have learned from school that could give you the edge.
The third thing you need to prepare is the resume. As expected, resumes for youth summer jobs need not be very professional looking. After all, you are not yet applying for a job that would practice your profession.
Next, gather all your resources. First thing you would want to do is consult older people that could drive you towards your targets. Talk with your parents and get some assistance. They may perhaps have some good contacts that would help you land the youth summer job you wan. Their assistance could be the insurance you have in entering a summer job, say your mom’s office has a advance position for interns. This way, it would be easier for you to enter a summer job since she would be of great help in processing your application.
A school counselor could also be approached to help you with your youth summer job. Normally, if companies are seeking for student applicants, the school counselors are the first people they approach. Thus, the possibility for recommendation is high with school counselors.
The last step would be the application and interview. Familiarize yourself with the job you are applying for. Research information on the company, the position you are eyeing on and the things that could make good impressions on your employer. Remember that you have to make good first impressions so wear something conservative on your interview day and prepare yourself on the possible events you would face.
