Some teenagers would like to be able to get a job and earn money. Since these individuals are still in
school, the next best thing to getting a real job is getting one that is part time.


When applying for a part time job, here are some tips one must remember when going up to a potential
employer;


•One must prepare a resume when applying for part time work. Even if the person does not have experience,
it will show the employer that a little effort was made on the part of the applicant in producing something on
paper. The resume may contain highlights or strengths about the applicant which could make the applicant
stand out over other people that have applied for the same position and in the end get that job.


•When meeting an employer, being dressed appropriately is important. It shows the sincerity one has in
applying for the job. One must be that finger-nails and hair are well groomed for the interview. The outfit
worn could be business casual. A polo and khaki pants will be ideal for men and a polo and skirt for the
women will do well for the interview. This would mean that moderate shoes must be used to match the
outfit. If one wears a lot of earrings, it is advisable to remove some to present the person better.


•Getting a job is not easy and there will be a lot of times that the employer will say “no.” This is nothing
personal but some employers will prefer someone who has some experience. Even if one is rejected, the
person must not give up in getting that part time and move on to the next potential employer.


•When one is already in front of the employer, a firm handshake is always a good start. Walking in and
showing ones sincerity in getting the job is another. There is only so much one say in interview so it is best
to practice in selling to the person the strengths one possesses in order to get that job.


•In the course of going from one employer to another, the employer will not give the answer at once if the
person is hired or not. Other applicants will still be interviewed before making that decision. By keeping a
list of the places where one went for interview, one will be able to call and follow up the status of the
application.


Part time jobs are available in various places. One might find one while walking in the neighborhood,
checking the school bulletin board or local paper and even the web for job postings.
