I job search for the first time in my life

Rate this Entry
Im so scared! I have never had a job before but the nagging feeling of getting job is getting stronger but my mom is right and I know it...."Look, you never do your homework and that's lazyness....No one wants to hire a lazy person"

I mean i can do the job right but I have this thing called a "phobia of being interviewed" that's actually like my fear of bee's called this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear_of_bees....

Why do you have to be interviewed to get a job...Why cant you just show them some papers of your work related to the job and they hire you if you have enough of the skills or skills that are the best compared to other people aplying for that job....

So I want to work near my home....Ok,the job is 10 miles away and the only way I could get to it is eather 1 hour bike ride or next month a 20MPH scooter that I would not need a license for...Its would be me working part time on weekends at McDonald due to the fact that I have classes to go to 4 our of the 5 days...

"To the person with social anxiety, going to a job interview is pure torture: you know your excessive anxiety will give you away. You'll look funny, you'll be hesitant, maybe you'll even blush, and you won't be able to find the right words to answer the questions coherently. Maybe this is the worst part of all: You know that you are going to say the wrong thing. You just know it. It is especially frustrating because you know you could do the job well if you could just get past this terrifying and intimidating interview."http://www.socialphobia.org/whatis.html

Im so lost.........What should this 18 year old do?

    An interview is to show the boss that you are ready for the job you want, and also for you to make a good impression (the way you dress, the way you answer his/her questions/socialize, and your answers to his/her questions etc. will play a part in the interview).

    So an interview is a must when going for a job, so the boss will know what you are like and if he/she thinks you are capable for the job.

    Hope that kinda answers your question about why we have to go to a job interview :)

    The military is not just killing people. Last time I saw a statistic their were 7 people for every man in a role that is task to kill people such as Infantry, Tankers, Gunners for helicopters and others in the Army, 5 for the Marine Corp. My job I'm going to basic for I will most likely never going to fire my gun at anything other then paper targets.

    You can join for almost anything ranging from Laundry Technician to launching satellites into orbit (Air Force). The military is not just here's a gun go shot theses people.
