Start your work experience right!
Remember, a lot of what you already do can be added to your budding resume. For example, jobs you do for family or friends- like babysitting, mowing the lawn, or taking care of pets- all show that you are capable and responsible. If you have no other work experience, throw those on to the resume! You probably won't need a resume for the first couple of jobs you have, but it doesn't hurt to start one so you can keep track of everything you've done- this will be really helpful when it comes to writing a real world resume. Resource: even though most of this list applies to resumes for college grads, there are some helpful hints at how to structure a resume for any age.
The interview is the most important part when it comes to your first few years of working. You might not have much of a resume yet, so wow your potential employers in your first meeting with them. Quintcareers.com is a site that gives pre-interview tips, and tips for during and after the interview, specifically for teens!
