Teen in need of job: Where should I look? Are ALL jobs that hard to find now, or just good paying ones?

Teen in need of job: Where should I look? Are ALL jobs that hard to find now, or just good paying ones? Topic: City jobs applications new york

Question: I'm a teen and need any job I can find..where should I look?? and...when people talk about how tough of economic times we are in and "jobs are hard to find"......Do they mean any jobs??? or are they basically just talking about good paying jobs you can support a family off of, that used to allow people to live "good" life styles of going on vacations and having alot of money to blow?? I ask this because I come from an area in the south that isnt exactly going through an economic boom. Actually the central city of my mid sized metro is declining. We were even ranked as one of the poorest cites in America by Forbes last year, and despite my city being one of the POOREST cities in such HORRIBLE economic times, it still seems like I'm seeing tons of people around here able to find employment somewhat easily, even if its fast food, wal mart, dollar general, or k-mart, etc. So. I'm just wondering, is it that jobs are so difficult to find? or just good ones? Right now I just need anything until I get through school, it shouldnt be hard to get on at some type of place like I listed above, right??

Tia - You are about to make a $1 million mistake. I'll get to that in a minute. I am a computer geek working in a large business as an Information Technology (IT) professional. You may not be interested in that field but bear with me for a moment as I want to share with you the state of things in IT employment and give you some perspective on how that relates to your situation. Right now if someone asked me what they would need to enter a career in Information Technology they would need a 4 year Bachelors degree, some job experience and maybe a few industry certifications. When they went to the interview process they would probably have 50 other applicants that have applied for the job and they would be very fortunate to get one of the 5-10 interviews offered out to the 50 applicants. If they got the job they would be making about $35,000 per year to start. So if you compare this to your situation, you want to make $45,000-$50,000 with no skills and limitations due to physical problems you have. So you can see that the salary level you are looking for is pretty unrealistic given your lack of a college degree. You just have to bring something more to the table here to offer some value to an employer. Some skills, a degree or something. The value of a college degree is not what you learn in college. The value is it proves that you are teachable and will complete what you start. That is why employers hire college grads over non-college grads. They figure that a degree proves the person can be trained how to do stuff. Earning statistics (I've given you links below) reveal that with a high school diploma you will earn about $1 million in your 40 year working lifetime of age 25-65 years old. The 2 year Associates degree from a junior or community college will take you to $1.5 million and a 4 years Bachelors degree will get you over $2 million. That is a $1 million difference over a lifetime. So you are about to make a $1 million mistake. Best wishes!
