Youth Employment Tips and Resources

Applying for your first job can be an exciting as well as nerve-wracking experience. The best way to beat the butterflies in your stomach is to be prepared! Before you set out to apply for that first job you should think about several key things. Ask yourself, "How many hours can I work?" "How will I get to and from work?" "Am I ready to balance work and school?" Once you have answered those questions, it is time to prepare for the application process itself. The following links will help you and your parents understand your rights as a youth employee, work permit requirements and the multitude of resources available to help you succeed.
