Krysta Ventura- job experience

I am a 17 year old female in highschool, graduate of 2019. I regret to say that I have no experience with a job due to no time with my education. I am willing to put time and much effort into working efficiently while juggling school like a pro #jobsearch #jobapplication #experience #highschool

Good news...no one expects a 17 year old in the US to have work experience. Identify non-skilled jobs that you can do. Relay work or interests that you have done (e.g. baby sitting, mowing laws, etc.) You will start at the bottom. But almost everyone starts there. My first job at 18 was a busboy for Denny's earning $3/hour. Thirty years later, I earn considerably more than that now in a high-skill position. Knock on a lot of doors and expect a lot of rejections. Eventually you will get an opportunity.

There are a few Industries that will hire people under the age of 18 among these are agricultural warehousing in Food Industries just because you have not had any experience at 17 these industries will welcome you with open arms it depends on what is available in your area and what you're willing to do I can tell you at your age I was already on my 4th job and the youngest warehousing manager at an air freight company and I can tell you it is possible to have that much responsibility at work and still complete your work in school as I had a 4.0 grade average during High School I'm not saying is easy I'm saying is doable my suggestion to you is to research these industries in your area and find out which one is in the most need of employees and apply there good luck have fun and give them hell

If you plan to attend college look into a work study program.
