Treated different because i’m in high school

I just interviewed to work at a retail store. They told me that I would have to fill in any hours that their full time employees (older than me) couldnt work. Is it worth it to take the job?

Hi Alan! To answer your question I would first ask yourself how important the job is to you. Is it something you really enjoy doing, or are there other options you would rather pursue? If it really is the best fit for you, you might want to consider that the older employees probably started with entry level positions, too. A lot of them may have worked their way into those positions with more flexible hours, and eventually, you may do the same! If the timing won't be a big issue for you, go for it! Sometimes it's great to just get out there and see what about a job you like or don't like (especially in high school where you're starting to think about future career paths).

Let me know what you decide to do, and I hope this was helpful! Also, join the high school group on jobcase! It's targeted for high school students to be able to ask those kinds of questions to each other!

INTERNSHIPS: The Good, The Paid, And The Unpaid

#teensummerjobs #internships #teenjobs #jobsearch #advice #teens #highschool

Don’t dismiss the idea of high school internships until you’ve got the facts.

First, let’s bust a few myths:

1) Internships aren’t just for recent grads and college students 2) Not all of them are unpaid 3) It’s not just getting coffee, making copies, and being the office errand-runner

Now that we’ve cleared that up, keep in mind that timing is everything. March and April are prime application time for summer internships.! Read on for facts, tips and resources to help you decide if an internship is right for you, and how to get started.

Types of internships The best internship options for high schoolers are: paid, unpaid, for-credit and not-for-credit. Though each one varies, they’re similar in that they all help with early stage career-building, look great on college applications, help you make industry connections, are a chance to lock down high-level references and referrals, and ultimately, can lead to a permanent job.

Paid: Don’t expect to be rolling in dough, but do expect to be rich with experience. • US Secret ServiceGeoSciences Bridge ProgramMicrosoftGoogle

Unpaid: Same idea as a paid internship, but make sure you are getting a fair payoff of exposure, learning, and networking opportunities. • Harvard Summer Program for High School StudentsStanford University Research ProgramWedding & Event PlanningEnvironmental Protection Agency

For-Credit: Many high schools and colleges offer internship programs in exchange for school credit. The idea is to help you work toward graduation, and once you have your degree, you’ll have that much more experience in your field! Many of these internships can also be done for non-credit. Not-For-Credit internships are usually for students who do not need any additional credit on their transcripts, but want more practical experience. (Note: these are traditionally for college-bound students or college students, but you can still keep an eye out to see if they can be obtained while in high school) • EngineeringTechnical InternCreative ServicesDigital MediaLegal Justice

Benefits We already busted the myth that interns live to serve coffee, run errands and make copies. What you can expect is behind-the-scenes access to action that’s usually reserved for seasoned professionals. It’s a great way to “try on” an industry, business, or career before taking the plunge for real.

Some more benefits of internships: • Work experience trumps any and all coursework or volunteering...it’s a great resume booster. • Automatic references and referrals • Network connections and contacts • RELEVANT WORK EXPERIENCE! A student internship is a rare opportunity to obtain actual work credit, which will make you stand out against other high schoolers with no work experience and increase your chances of landing a job.

SIDE NOTE: This kind of “career exploration” isn’t exclusive to only students who plan to go to college. Apprenticeships are a great way for vocational school students or trade workers to gain practical hands-on experience and training in a specialized field.

Resources Now that you know the types of internships and how they’re beneficial, here’s some info compiled to help you find – and land – your 2018 summer internship. • 15 Awesome Internships for High School StudentsSummer 2018 Internships Search6 Reasons To Do An InternshipCareer Advice: Why Internships Rock15 Ways to Stand Out As An InternNASA Internships

AND, don’t miss these tips straight from the Jobcase Jobready Kit to help you get in tip-top internship shape: • How to use the Jobcase resume generatorJobcase Jobready ChecklistThe small stuff matters! How & why you should add it to your Jobcase profile

High school is not too early to start thinking ahead, and an internship is just that: an investment or in your future.

So, overall, think of an internship as a unique chance to “test drive” and explore an interest. No contracts signed, no long-term commitments. It’s less about making money and more about getting hands on, in your face, real-world experience.

What are some reasons you would consider an internship? What kind of internship interests you, and why?

A Peace of advise for young people.

One area I would encourage young people who are still in high school or just graduated. Find yourself an internship dedicated to high schoolers or recent grads. It will give you experience and give you an opportunity to discover if you want a job in that chosen industry or not before you plop down a lot of time and money in education.

It does work. I have a good friend. She got a internship at a navy shipyard who does maintenance for most of the ships in the US fleet on the west coast while she was still in high school. She discovered she had the knack for electrical work. After high school she then applied to the apprentice program for this shipyard. Thanks to her internship. It give her a leg up in the hiring process.

Even now these many years later. She is still working for the yard. Now for a major contractor for the shipyard. Still loving her job, and what she is doing.

There are many opportunities like this if you nose around. Both in the public and private sectors. It may lead to a job out of high school or at the very least point you in the right direction. Or even get yourself a good mentor you can guide you in your professional development.

I myself wished I had gone this direction.

Good luck!

Keep up the fight. When i was 3 i got a job in geophysical seismology and exploration. My love for children pushed me into a teaching career. I love teaching. When my grandma asked why i changed careers i told her i love the children. She beat me down with a sock half full of quarters. Hope this helps.
