Keep Calm and Get a Job

Juliyanna McCracken, Staff Writer

In this day and age, students in high school come to a point in there life when they begin to consider the advantages of being employed.

Being in high school and having limited opportunities to obstacles such as transportation and extra curricular activities may affect your job search, but it is also important to remember that as you get older you will have to start working eventually. Why not start now?

There are unlimited amounts of opportunities in today’s world, and there are various benefits that will allow you to better yourself and give you life experiences. When you start working you also begin to consider what type of career you would like to engage in the future. Not only that, but you could also receive educational opportunities, such as scholarships. Customer service is huge in today’s world, and working teaches you to properly learn how to handle the situations that you face in the workplace. With a job you will also earn money that can be spent however you choose.

If you are unable to have a job, I encourage you to connect with your community, and see what options are available for you. Having a job is not required, but should be encouraged.
