Many teenagers experience more freedom from parents and authority figures as they navigate high school. However, these freedoms often come with more responsibility, such as getting a job.

Luckily for Carlmont students, mobile apps teacher Kristine Govani posts job flyers and work permits on a bulletin board outside of the B-hall counseling office.

According to Govani, businesses reach out to the College and Career Center with information on job openings, and the office adds that information to the board.

“If [students] want a job, it’s a good place to start because they’re starting with a company that wants high school students,” said Govani.

Sophomore Lexie Hamdun utilized the bulletin board when she was looking for a job.

“Recently, I have been interested in looking for a job and preparing for my future,” said Hamdun.

The board has flyers for a variety of job openings. Students have the opportunity to work at local stores like Sigona’s Farmer’s Market or channel their talents at places like Kwala Music or Legarza.

Although sophomore Hunter Hawkes didn’t find his job on the board, he used it for research and finds that it is a valuable tool.

“It’s encouraging kids to get a job,” Hawkes said. “I think it’s useful for those who are too shy to go ask for an application themselves.”

According to LiveCareer.com, entrepreneurial and work experience is among the top ten skills colleges look for on applications. Not only does having a job show work ethic and commitment, the website says it can provide interesting essay topics.

Govani believes that in addition to improving students’ resumes, having a job provides skills applicable to students’ futures.

Once students apply for and get a job, they must fill out a work permit with their and their employers’ information. Govani processes these permits by entering the information into a software for the district, and students can begin working soon after.

“Having a job gives students an idea of what responsibility is and how you have to work to get what you want in life,” said Hawkes.
