Hey! Im 17 and I have to start finding a job for next year. I have a class called "CRD" (Career Research and Development) and next year part of my class is me going to the actual job and reporting back to the teacher. I have experiance volenteering and some other good stuff to put on a resume, but im afraid that when they meet me, I'll be denied right away. I am able to write very well (if i try lol) but my face to face skills are quite different. :? Oh well...
Reply if youve ever been in a situation like this before :wink:

If you've volunteered successfully, you can probably be successful in a job.

Is getting a job one of the requirements of the class?

Hello!
Yes, the class requires you to have a job. The class is designed to show what the real world is like. Its not labeled a speciial education class, but majority of people who take it are :)

I bet you can do well in your job. Part of the job of the teacher, I believe, is to provide support.

I didn't do well in a job when I was 17. I was fired the very first day.

But.....by the time I was 19, I started working at my present job. I'm still at this job at age 58.

You take a class that REQUIRES you to have a job? Now that's something you don't see every day!
