Do you enjoy working with children? Thinking about what you like to do and what you’re good at will help ensure that you get a job you will enjoy—and one that you will be successful at. Determine what kind of job you want Do you want to work days? Nights? Weekends? What hours are you available to work? Do you want to work part-time or full-time? Do you want a job just for the summer, or are you looking for a long-term job in a specific career field? Do you want to work inside or outside? Do you want to work where there’s lots of activity or where it’s quiet? Would you rather work with people (e.g., at a store or restaurant) or with things (e.g., merchandise, computers, tools)? If money isn’t a priority, consider community service. You won’t get a paycheck, but your work will be rewarding and worthwhile. If you are 18 or older, are you interested in working for a temp agency like Manpower? Temporary jobs can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. They can also lead to permanent employment.
