You need money for everything - movies, concerts, food, surf lessons. So if you want to do more than lay on the couch this summer, you're gonna need some cash. Since you're too young to play the lottery, why not find yourself a summer job? Follow these tips and you'll be spending your first paycheck in no time!
Summer Job Search Dos
Make a resume. You probably have more experience than you think. Volunteer work, babysitting, walking the neighbor's dog - it all counts. Don't forget to spell check!
Ask around. About 80% of jobs aren't advertised, so make sure your friends and family know you're looking. They might be able to hook you up.
Do your homework. We know this sucks, but just take a little time to find out about the company you're applying to before you go to an interview. The interviewer will be totally impressed you already know stuff about 'em.
Summer Job Search Don'ts
Be a slob. Make sure you dress nicely both when you hand out resumes and when you go for interviews.
Answer your cell phone in an interview. In fact, it should be turned off before you enter the interview. If you forget and it rings, immediately apologize to the interviewer and turn it off without answering it.
Never, Ever Do This!
These are just a few of the crazy things actual people have done in job interviews!
A woman wore a Walkman during her job interview, explaining that she could listen to the interviewer and the music at the same time.
A guy said he would show his loyalty to the company by having its logo tattooed on his arm, if he was hired.
A woman interrupted the interviewer to phone her therapist for advice on how to answer the questions.
If someone is bullying you to the point of making you cry - first of all: I am so sorry that is happening and that is NOT okay. Have you told any adults? You should really tell someone in your RL.
Technically we should be able to be ourselves regardless of who we are without worrying about getting picked on. I know realistically that's not always the case.
What are some of the things in your life that make you to happiest? If I were you and to me you sound like an interesting & creative person - I would focus on your strengths? Then focus on doing things that make you feel good on the inside. Maybe you have a favourite queen song? Can you paint a picture with that song on repeat, can you go for a hike or a jog while listening to your fav. music? Have you ever thought of writing fan fiction about Queen? All these things help to let of steam.
Bullying is NOT okay. Please tell someone and then find a constructive, healthy way to spend some time positively. Try to practice self love, and be less judgmental with the way you see yourself - just because you are different or think differently - that's a good thing! Celebrate it [s:p/zsv]
my father would usaully yell at me for making his food wrong and sometimes if im ten minutes late my mom would say something like this "you need to grow up and take cares of your chours and stop going on my phone" then she go off topic like "you need more friends and go out doors and". Then my dad is all like "are you sleepy bc you eat to much junk food (even thou i barely even eat a full blown meal)". Oh and my brother, he keeps saying how ugly i am and he brings his girlfriend (which is one year younger than him" into my room like can i be alone. What i am saying is family do not like the youngest child.
