You have been working all your life. Growing up, going to school, driving, yard work, cooking, fixing your toys and sports equipment, buying clothes and groceries, and paying your bills are all forms of work. With that experience you can work as an accounts payable, maintenance, assembly, cook, cashier, sales, warehouse, inventory, driver and purchasing.

Tips for teens on landing that FIRST job!

Landing that first job is challenging but NOT impossible!

The first thing you need to do is make a resume. It's easy and you can do it in 5-10 minutes here on Jobcase just by filling out your profile. You can do this even without any experience. Here is what you need to include and how to make your resume.

Emphasize your education

As a current student (or even if you just graduated), be sure to emphasize your education. Place your education info at the very top of your resume. If you have a strong GPA, highlight this as well as any academic awards, honors, or other achievements.

Include the small things

Since your work experience is somewhat limited, focus on emphasizing any other forms of work, including volunteer experience or any extracurricular activities you participated in, including clubs, sports, and other organizations. If you happened to do some tutoring, babysitting, gardening, or dog walking for example include those as well. Even if these are jobs that don’t require a large skill set, the fact you performed them on a somewhat regular basis shows you have a strong work ethic!

Emphasize leadership experience

Employers are always looking for job applicants with leadership experience and qualities. If you were a captain for your sports team or the vice president of your student council, be sure to list these positions! You should feel proud of them.

List your skills

Consider including a skills section on your resume to include any skills you have that are related to the job you are applying for.

Connect your resume to the job

Review the job posting before creating your resume! Circle any key qualifications or requirements of the job and determine how YOU are a good match and what you can bring to them. Then be sure to include any experiences and skills in your resume that highlight how you are a great fit for that specific job.

Edit

ALWAYS proofread your resume before submitting it to an employer! Your format needs to remain consistent and easy to follow, and spelling or grammatical errors are a big no, no. Ask a friend or family member to read through your resume to catch any mistakes before you submit it to a potential employer.

Make your resume FAST on Jobcase

Not sure where to begin? Jobcase has a built-in resume generator that you can use to create and download a beautiful, formatted resume right from your profile in 3 easy steps.

1- Fill out your profile completely! This includes your location, email, summary, work experience, traits, education, skills, etc.

2- Click on the resume tab just under your summary and you will see an image of your pre-generated resume.

3- Scroll down and click the download button below your resume preview.

Now you have a formatted, PDF resume that you can use to apply for jobs!

Get started applying

Consider a job at McDonald's or other fast food establishments. They are a GREAT place to build your experience, skills, and they hire teens!

Wishing you the best of luck with your #firstjob !
