What was your first job?

As I was walking my dogs this morning, I started thinking about my #firstjob and how crazy (and exciting!) my career journey has been since then.

I started babysitting for friends and family at a very young age, but my first "W-4 job" was a birthday party host at a laser tag arena. It was a RAD first job, I've got to say!

Since then, I've held various roles including: barista, host, server, bartender, marketing intern, PR intern, copywriter, digital communications manager and of course, my current role as a Jobcase community specialist!

To this day, I still leverage skills I learned in that very first position such as customer relations, time management and the ability to effectively communicate. Of course those skills have been refined and approved upon since then, but the foundation was laid waaaaaay back then :)

What was YOUR first job?!

Many places do not hire 14-year-old employees. Some businesses might not be available or are not hiring due to our good friend COVID-19 as well. I recommend that you search your neighborhood for people who need a babysitter, someone to pick weeds or rake leaves, a pet sitter, or someone who wants their trash bins cleaned. I hope this helps!

COVID-19 Affecting Job Availability

Hello there! My name is Julia Bassett. I am a student attending Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. For the past several months I have been looking for a job. I need a job in order to pay my college expenses as well as find a way to pay for an apartment. Due to COVID-19, many businesses were forced to cut their employment in half or keep the people they already employed. As a result, I was not able to begin building my resume with part time employment. I am in the process of finding a job, but I find myself stuck because there are not many opportunities for people such as myself to find a job. It is rather frustrating to search for jobs online when some websites are not credible or they do not provide you the information you need. I am very concerned for people without work experience because they simply cannot find work during these uncertain times. I am not sure what solution there is out there to help these people. If there is anyone out there who has an idea of how to successfully land a job in these strange times, your advice is welcome and appreciated! I hope that you who are struggling will reach out to friends, family, professors, and other figures in your life for advice in finding work. I wish you all the best of luck! #coronavirus #advice #workfromhome #firstjob

Honestly hon most places won't hire under 16 anymore for insurance liability reasons and because at 14 by law you can only work very limited hours. I do however know that market basket hires at 15.and maybe try posting on Craigslist as a babysitter I'd u have experience and only after your parents check the person out first.
