As a teen in high school I never thought to get a job. I wanted to be social and focus on school. Getting a job was just not on my mind. Now that I’m in college I have been applying and applying trying to find a job. I put on my resume that I did do a lot of volunteer work in high school because I never did get a job. I even went to a temp agency to get work. People there say we are looking for people with actual experience. I think to myself, how am I supposed to get experience if no one hires me. Of course this makes me sad. The lesson I learned is that I should have found a job in high school or babysat for people. Anything that would get me experience would have been good. Everyone in high school should think about getting a job. It will always help when you are actually looking for one in the future.
