    Make yourself a resume, buy a paper and check the job listings. Call em up, fax or drop off a resume and try and hook up an interveiw. Look yer best and kiss ass!

    wear khaki pants, button up shirt/polo shirt tucked in.

    gel your hair, shave your face.

    speak with proper grammar.

    yes.. the resume is important.
    but it's not really the first step.

    so what is it you might ask?

    Determine your marketable skill
    You need to know what you can offer a specific type of employer.
    Now I'm not going to waste time talking about McJobs.
    Every Industry looks for certain things in a resume.
    Do you have any training, certifications or related work experience?
    My resume is simply a list of the projects I've been involved with over
    the past 4 years and in what capacity I was employed.

    yeah... ask yourslef why they should hire you over some other schmoe.
    Then tell them why.

    Look for places that have "for hire" signs, I know it sounds stupid but some people apply places that just aren't hiring

    "like what kinda job should i look for?"

    is that about the whole resume thing?

    if so, make a resume for working at big companies.

    yeah... when I wrote all that I didn't know it was for a first job.

    Unfortunately you dont have any experience in the working world,
    so it might be tough. My first job was as a soccer ref. I'd get 5$ a
    game and I'd do 6 games a week. $30 wasn't bad for a 12 year old.
    However... you're probably wanting some larger coins...

    So you want to avoid the McJobs out there. They suck.
    Try to get something with the city that you live in. The gov't makes
    for a decent employer. A friend back in the day worked at a snack booth
    next to this pool/park thing. He'd just spend all day selling freezies to
    kids and cans of pop to girls. Then at the end of the summer, the city
    hooked him up with some temp office gig he could do around school.

    not bad eh?

    just avoid McDonalds. That shit will suck your soul.
    Maybe Landscaping (read: well paid yard work)

    see, i always told myself i would never work in fast food. and i havent. and i will never. i reccomend you do the same. it just seems like something thatd make me come home wanting to blow my brains all over the wall every day. moreso than now.

    im actually looking for a job right now.....not hard. but if i see something that looks workable ill take it now because doing good in all my classes this semester is pretty vital. im looking for something that could benefit me like a film lab or something for all the b+w work i do.....try to get my shit printed for free. but yeah.....your young nak, look for something that you could possibly use for things and maybe not hate all that much, even though at your age you should probably just get the job for a little while and go somewhere else to get alot of different job types in to show your well rounded later or some shit.

    what about an art store or something? hardware store? you could get paint and other gear........
