Looking for a Job? Spread the Word!

(A short n’ sweet job tip)

We know you have homework – and that last thing you want is more reading.  So here’s a short n’ sweet job tip.

Many jobs come from the people you know so it’s important to talk to trusted friends, parents, neighbors, teachers, coaches, counselors – everyone you can think of to let them know you’re looking for a job.

Be sure to tell them about the kind of work you’d like to do. Most jobs are found through referrals and people you know are often happy to help you out.  If you get a not-quite-perfect job opportunity don’t turn it down because it’s not the perfect job. It might lead to the job you really want.
