INSIDER REVEALS: How to land your dream first job
WHETHER you’re going for your first job after high school, an apprenticeship, or just casual work in a cafe, landing that first role can be a daunting process.
According to Pocket Admin owner Dani Logan, the key to teens landing their first gig was to turn the skills learned through school, hobbies, and home life into employable traits.
“I think the most important bit of advice I give to teenagers is not to think of themselves as a teenager, but a professional – dress professional, act professional, and be confident,” Mrs Logan said.
“Employers want to see enthusiasm and know you care about their organisation, you care about getting a job, and you care about learning.
“You’re going out there to begin your life, so don’t do it by halves – really put your heart into it, and employers will see you doing that.”
Mrs Logan also stressed resumes and cover letters for any position should be polished, grammatically correct, and highlight the applicant’s standout characteristics.
