Search online for businesses you would like to work for. Don’t wait until you know there is a job opening to contact a business. Remember, most job openings are never posted or advertised. How to contact employers You can contact an employer by phone, email, or possibly through their website. The best approach, however, is to visit a business in person. Make a good impression when you visit  Dress appropriately.  Avoid going when they are likely to be busy.  If you have a resume, bring a copy with you.  Be friendly and polite to everyone you meet.  Ask to speak to the person in charge of hiring.  Make eye contact, smile, and introduce yourself. Say something like, “Hello, my name is Olivia Jones. I’m hoping to find a part-time job for the summer, and I am wondering if you might have any job openings.” Even if they say they don’t have any openings, ask if you can fill out an application. Follow up Keep a list of the businesses you contact. Make note of the date, the name of the person you spoke with, and the result. Contact them a week or two later and ask them to continue to keep you in mind. Step 3 – Contact Employers
