IF YOU DON'T HAVE A JOB AND YOU WANT A JOB, YOU MUST PRETEND AS IF FINDING A JOB IS YOUR JOB. Think about it.. You are sitting there broke and depressed, feeling as if the ceiling is about to collapse and leave you squished like a tomato that has fallen from the Empire State Building. So why not take a hot shower, drink a strong cup of coffee, get dressed like you’re going to work, and sit down and make a plan to get a job, pay taxes, and take care of yourself. Before you can take care of anyone else, we must be able to take care of ourselves in a proper manner, or really we are doing more harm than good for others because we will only take them down with us. Sounds selfish to me. Okay, I don’t want this to be a book, so I’ll get more to the point. Pretend like you have a job that doesn’t pay yet. I know that sounds horrible, to work for no pay, but you are working for yourself and most businesses aren’t able to pay the owner a salary in the beginning. You are investing in yourself, and most stocks don’t pay dividends immediately. Figure out what shift you want to work (First shift is best for this job because all the offices and businesses are open during the day). Pick your time, an eight hour shift with a half-hour lunch and a 15 minute break in the morning and another in the afternoon. Just like at a job working for someone else, during work hours, you only work, nothing else. No Facebook, Tik-Tok, YouTube, or anything else that distracts you and wastes your time. If you wouldn’t be able to do it while working for someone else, don’t do it working for yourself. Now get busy and get a job. I never give any guarantees or promises, but I’ll bet a basket of warm buttered biscuits against a piping hot skillet of sauerkraut that if you work getting a job as a job for eight hours a day, it won’t be long and you will be working somewhere. If you need any further guidance, resume help, suggestions, ideas, critiques or opinions, I’m here, just reach out. Regardless, please do something.

P.S. Employers who scroll these pages will not notice you without your profile completed. Be proactive and get it done. If you need help, ask.

Your title in your profile means what you are doing now or were previously, so for example "Cashier" or "Content writer." Does that help?

From gaining new skills to opening the door to job opportunities, volunteering is a win for all.

Volunteering is a great way for high school students to give back to the community, experience working in a certain field, and gain valuable new skills. It speaks to your character in a way that test scores cannot, and it will give your college applications a boost.

So, if you’re in high school and thinking about volunteering, read on to learn about how it’s beneficial, and why we recommend it.

Benefits of Volunteering 1. A way to give back As a student, you’re probably super busy. Between school work, clubs, sports, a job (if you have one), your days fill up quickly. But volunteering your time is selfless, and a generous way to get to know a new group of people with whom you’d otherwise not interact. From volunteering at a preschool to spending time with senior citizens, it can be deeply fulfilling, and it’s sure to make a profound difference to the community you’re spending time with.

2. Build new skills and relationships Volunteering is an opportunity to learn new skills that are foundational to any future career. You’ll sharpen your organizational skills, prioritization, time management, problem solving, and communication skills, to name a few. It’s also a great opportunity to network and build out a list of contacts whom you can reach out to in the future.

3. Resume/college application boost Volunteering can set you apart from other applicants and candidates. Doing something for which you aren’t paid shows selflessness, drive, ambition, and creativity: qualities that make you stand out. While many volunteering programs can even transfer into school credits, it’s also a great way to gain real-world work experience while you’re still in school.

4. Promotes open-mindedness Between working with a community of retirees to helping out at a zoo, volunteering opens yourself up to new experiences, and it can help you see the world differently. It keeps you grounded and fosters a sense of social awareness. New experiences can open the door to new passions, too. And who knows? Volunteering could lead you to find your future career.

Where to start Here are some great places to look into volunteering if you’re interested in taking the next step. • Sports lovers: volunteer to help with after-school fundraising activities for school sports teams, help coach younger kids in little league/other sports, assist with sports team management • Animal lovers: local animal shelter, help with dog adoption services, zoo/aquarium • Nature lovers: volunteer at your local farmer’s market and help with general set up/produce transfer, check out any local tree planting/greenery initiatives, volunteer at your local nature conservancy branch to help with garbage clean-up, trail clearing, river cleaning, habitat restoration, and more • “People” people: local hospitals, soup kitchens or food banks, retirement or nursing homes, reading at a local library, preschool or childcare centers

For any and all of these places, we recommend doing a quick search of the area that interests you and looking for a phone number or your town’s local programs. Ask if they’re looking for any volunteers...you’ll likely be welcomed to help with open arms.

Don’t overlook those mundane little tasks that were part of your previous or current position because they matter, and they can make you stand out and set you apart from other candidates.

But, rather than listing your responsibilities like ingredients on the back of a box, assign meaning to them. Make it personal. Make it you.

The mundane matters! These tasks, called “soft skills,” are personal attributes necessary to succeed in any workplace. They are like the foundation of a house: you can’t build up without it. And most importantly, they are practical, transferable and valuable.

Add them to your profile!

For example... Retail workers -- did you pick up slack at the end of your shift?

  • Tended to the shop as if it were my own -- made sure it was tidy and presentable at the start of the shift and took the time to leave it as I would like to find it.

As a warehouse associate, were you right there at the shipping dock, unloading and sorting merchandise? Were you always reminding your coworkers to wear them helmets? Add it in, and make it personal.

  • Helped coordinate delivery and shipment functions with calm, care and accuracy. Ensured a risk-free work environment by encouraging others to wear proper safety equipment and keeping warehouse clean and organized.

Cashiers: you probably honed your soft skills working the register more than you think. Your experience was unique, so get down to the nitty gritty!

  • Made sure every customer felt welcomed and satisfied with their shopping experience, from entry to exit.

Take the time to translate these often-overlooked duties into measurable credentials because it shows you value yourself and take your work seriously. It sends a message to employers that you are qualified, and that you are worth their time.

As always, we’re here to help.
