Applying for, and getting your first “adult job”

Don’t sell yourself short! You are more qualified than you realize. Employers are not looking for someone who can walk in and be perfect on day one; they are looking for someone with passion and a willingness to learn. So even if you don’t meet all of the “requirements” listed on an application, go for it anyway. Someone will be impressed by your motivation and drive and be willing to take a chance on you!
