Good luck. What is it? I might look for one when I go back to college, but around here literally the only thing hiring people my age is Burger King.

I got my first job back in December, teacher's aide at a preschool. Even better, it's on campus, so I can work around my classes.

Congrats on the interview, Sobriquet!

I really should get a job, but ehh. I need to find somewhere I'd like to work. That'd be a good start, aha.

I don't want a job that much (who does? :P) but I need the money, and I think I'll enjoy this one.

I've been a preschool assistant for most of my life, I've been a riding instructor, and I've done graphics for my mom's business. My first job with an actual salery was as a library page. I've been one since I turned fifteen. I have to give my notice next month since I'm moving. My library just got a severe budget cut, so I'd have lost most of my hours anyway. I've going to get another library job on campus and if I end up staying at my aunt's, I'll get another job paging over at her library with my cousin.



Take a chance, save a life... welcome to J. Carter & Associates.

Hah, I was a library page through most of high school. I went to college out of state, so obviously I couldn't keep that job. Which made finding a job this summer harder than usual--my boss said she'd take me back, if she had any openings, which of course she didn't. But I've finally found an internship. It's basically data input, but it pays above minimum wage, which is more than can be said for the library job. :)

I have no money and nothing but T-shirts and jeans.

I foresee...

Tenner + charity shops = Disaster

Disaster = No Job

No Job = No Money

No Money = Worse Disaster Next Time.

Well, that answers the question, just think

Positive attitude = good interview

good interview = job

job = money

money = stuff like Doctor Who dvds

(sorry, I'll stop talking about Doctor Who :embarrassed: )

That's exactly what I was going to spend my money on. But I want the second series, which they haven't got in my local CeX. Damn.

But first, the interview itself.

I've worked for my dad for a couple summers now, helping with remodeling and construction projects.

I worked for the community education program at the high school this past school year--I taught courses on web design.

I start working for a local baseball team on Thursday in the concession stand. I'm going to be so lost. The baseball team is a sort of farm club for the Philadelphia Phillies, so that's cool.

I have yet to ever go through a real interview though. I'm lucky!
