Seven Tips for youth looking for their first job


  1. Start early: Start looking for job opportunities well before you need one. This will give you more time to prepare and increase your chances of finding the right job.
  2. Tailor your resume and cover letter: Have your resume reviewed by trusted colleague or friend.  Tailor your resume and cover letter to the specific job you’re applying for. Highlight your relevant skills and experiences and make sure to use the right keywords.
  3. Network: Networking is an important part of the job search process. Attend job fairs, connect with people in your industry, and ask for recommendations from teachers and  community leaders on volunteer work.
  4. Build your skills: Consider taking classes or workshops to build relevant skills and make yourself more marketable to employers. This will help you stand out from the pack.
  5. Be persistent: Keep applying to jobs even if you don’t get an immediate response. Remember, it can take time to find the right job.
  6. Be prepared for the interview: Research the company, prepare for common interview questions. Be ready to answer the phone screen in a confident manner if there is one.
  7. When you get invited to meet a potential employer, dress professionally.
