Learn skills you’ll need in your future positions.

Your experience is valuable, even if it’s not in the career you want to be in after school. You learn professional skills, like ways to interact with coworkers, how to talk to customers, how to take direction and how to make it to work consistently on time. Plus, experience in working environments impresses colleges and employers by showing your dedication. Always give 100% at your job — you will be able to use your employers as references on your resume later.

You can find job opportunities by asking local retailers if you can submit an application. You can also look online through job connection resources like the ones listed below.
