How to land your first job
It’s a question that can pose a real dilemma for teenagers. Should you get a part-time job and gain valuable work experience, or should you concentrate on your school work to have the best chance of getting good grades?
When both employers and universities say that they actively look for work experience in applications, it’s clear that a part-time job can be a very positive addition to your CV. But every teenager is different – the key is to maintain a balance between the benefits a job can bring and allowing plenty of time for homework, catching up with friends and chilling out.
