The article “Summer Jobs Edition” would give you some advice on how to get a job or prepare you. One way that many people find a job is they ask people around them for example family members, friends, teachers, etc. They let you known that many job sites will be asking for an internet application or a resume. When looking for a job that doesn’t mean that you would be having to work in a store or fast-food restaurant. You could use that time to try to experience something new to help you develop a new skill. When you don’t want anybody to order you can always start your own business. For example, you can always start your brown business by mowing lawns or even babysitting. When finding a summer job will help you develop new skills when graduating high school/college.

I agree with this article that many summer jobs will be helping developed skills. Another thing that I like about the article is that it shows you many operations on how to get a summer job. Another thing is that they will give you a little bit of information about what would you be needing for a summer job or something that they would be looking for. I find it interesting how they showing you the stages you will be coming across when applying for a job. I also find it interesting they make you think about skills that your would be developing or making you think about skills that you should be thinking about developing.

Dear Alex,
I am impressed by your post “What it Like When Finding a Job” because it is a good idea to ask people you know that how they find a job. Which the example where people that are your friends, family members, teachers, and others.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “When looking for a job that doesn’t mean that you would be having to work in a store or fast-food restaurant.” I think it true people getting a job in the summer doesn’t mean it has to be fast food or a store. People can find something that is interesting for them to do that could possibly be something they fall in love to do.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like your opinion of how to get a job from and where to work that their interest in. I would like you to continue telling about people who want to have a job especially teens who want a job.

Dear Alex,
I clicked on your post because of your title “What it’s like when finding a job” because as I was reading I came across some advice on how to get a job. I also came across some information on what you should do to apply for a job.
One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “When finding a summer job will help you develop new skills when graduating high school/college.” I think this is important because these skills that you develop from your job can benefit you in the long run.
Thanks for your writing I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you added the article for more information. I also like how you gave people advice on what to look for in finding a job.

Dear Alex:
I am interested in your post, “What It’s Like When Finding a Job,” because it shows what you need to know about getting a job. As well as, what you should do when applying.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “I also find it interesting they make you think about skills that your would be developing or making you think about skills that you should be thinking about developing.” I think this is important because you should know your skills when applying for a job. This will help me also apply for a job because I should find what skills I own that will seem good for the job.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you added an article. I also like how you gave advice on what to do when applying for a job.

Dear Alex:

I am interested by your post, “What is it like to find a job”, because I like that you talk about something that many people consider to be difficult to get, a job. Especially young people who start working are the ones who are most afraid of not being able to get a job that helps them financially and that they do not like it.

One sentence you wrote for me is: “I agree with this article that many summer jobs will help develop skills.” I think this is inspiring because here we can see how a simple job can teach you something. Also remember that learning new things makes us more skilled, just like Alex says.

Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because the truth is a very important and interesting topic. Also, it would be a very good idea if you could show more information about some jobs, especially for young people, so they can have ideas. The truth seems to me to be a super important issue since it is something new for many people who are beginning to work, who even tend to fear rejection.

I don’t know how your Alex observes, but do you think you can promote more information about some jobs that accept young people?

I would have to agree with you that getting a summer job helps develop many life skills. I got my first job by biking around my neighborhood and asking who was hiring. For me, I’ve learned about money and time management which are things that aren’t taught in school.

Hey Alex, this is really good information. I specifically liked the part about taking you through every step of the job application process. It would be cool if you applied some of your own experience to this, maybe if you talked about your own job search or how school relates to this? Over all great work.

I like this article a lot! I got a job last year through a family connection which was helpful, and something listed in the article you read. I agree that having a job is very important. It has taught me so much about life. It is also good to contemplate a job before attending. All of this information is very valid at this age and time of life!

I agree that getting jobs through connections is the most effective way and that is why putting yourself out there is very important especially at this age.

I agree with your standpoint Alex. Using online methods to find a job can be very inefficient, and take lots of time, but at the same time, it can also lead to different opportunities that you would not have if you are just talking to people that you know.
