*Over*A Teen Guide for Getting and Keeping a Job

Hey, Get a Job! A Teen Guide for Getting and Keeping a Job

I have seen the quality of workers decline rapidly over the years. I’m not exactly sure why but it’s so sad to see today’s youth have no work ethic! My oldest is now 13 and talks of getting his first job. Although, I have to admit, even though we’ve tried to raise him with a good work ethic, I’m a little worried about him getting his first job. Yes, he’s a few years off yet but now’s the time to get him ready.

I had the opportunity to review the book, “Hey, Get a Job! A Teen Guide for Getting and Keeping a Job” by Jennie Withers and it’s perfect for any who have teenagers heading off into the work force. Heck, it’s great for anyone looking for a job, I think!

I worked retail management for 15 years. Believe me, hiring and finding great employees is tough!! As I was reading, “Hey, Get a Job!” I kept thinking how I wished all employees went through this before even starting the job hunt. Here is a break down of what you’ll find in the book:

  • Who will hire me?
  • All those blanks – filling out the application
  • Don’t panic, it’s just a resume
  • I’m speechless – helping with the interview
  • So now I work, right? Wrong! – forms employers have the employee fill out
  • What do you want from me? – what employers want from their employees
  • In the long run – things to watch for
  • FAQ

This book is very easy to read and straight forward. It really takes you step by step through how to find and keep a job! I especially loved the information on filling out the application and resume. I don’t know how many applications we didn’t even review because of how they were filled out. It’s an important first step if you want to even be considered.

You can find Hey, Get a Job! on Amazon. I definitely recommend it!!
