For interviews most companies use video interviews, need to be on camera, like on hirevue, ms.teams, etc,because it's working from home. There are some that do phone interviews, depends on the company. 😊 This is from my experience.

With a work permit a person may be able to get a job as early as 14 years of age. However, it may depend on the state you live in.

If you're looking for someone underaged, most states have work from home permits which allow teens to work. Definitely try easy first jobs such as fast food places or retail. They might have more information too.

Customizing your resume doesn't mean rewriting it every time you apply for a new job. List all of your experience, skills, and qualifications on a template, then remove irrelevant ones for each new job. You have to customize your resume to the job opening. Targeting your resume to the job shows the hiring manager you're familiarized yourself with the job description and know how to prioritize the most relevant information.

Your experience doesn't change. However, the way you present your experience to a company looking for a detail-oriented candidates versus a company that values communication skill will differ.

Don't add every life experience to your resume! If the job posting doesn't mention certification, then they don't need you to include it on your resume. Use a chronological resume, HR departments love chronological resumes because they:

  • show career progression
  • can be used by job seekers of all skill levels and industries
  • are so commonly used that they're easy to understand

Remember that your work experience is your greatest selling point and to choose a font that is easy to read! I hope these tips helped :) #Resumes #Advice #Wordsofadvice #Jobsearch

More and more jobs aren't requiring them, but what are your thoughts on submitting a cover letter when applying? Do you personalize it to each company? Or are you sending the same one with every application? #application #jobsearch #advice #resume

I would try the food service industry, like fast food places, or retail stores first. Also hostessing at restaurants is a great job for a high school student to start out with, and gives them an 'in' to the industry if they want to try serving when they're old enough.
