Take a look at these great resume building tips and job application help for teens.
Resume Help

Activities

Here, you can list any extracurricular activities, clubs, committees or councils you have participated in - in or outside of school. If you're in the school band, drama club, on a sports team, or a member of student council, etc. these are things that impress future employers. If you haven't participated in any activities, don't make them up - people will find out and this is worse than if you didn't have any to begin with.

Skills

Can you play an instrument or use a computer? Do you work well with others? This is the part of your resume where you can show off a bit and list all of your features that you think will be an asset if you get the job. If you're really good at multi-tasking (think chewing gum and walking at the same time), then list that. Be creative, but don't go overboard.

References

Now, if you've never had a job before, you won't have work references. You can, however, include references from teachers, coaches, or any other person of authority who is willing to help you out. Make sure you include all the information needed to contact your references and make sure to ask permission to use someone as a reference before doing so.

Have You Ever Had a Job?

  • No, I've never had a job before.
  • I've done some babysitting - does that count?
  • I work on weekends at the mall.
  • My 'rents won't let me work.
