im 16 and looking for a job. my mum's friend of a friend runs a coffee shop, which is open to hiring younger people without experience of working in a cafe, and im interested in working there
on wednesday (4 days ago) me and my mum went in to the coffee shop and spoke to the guy. we discussed hours, what i would be doing, and pay (6 pounds an hour, which is AMAZING considering min. wage for 16 year olds is £3.87). it seemed like it went quite well - he said i could do a 'trial shift' (one hour) to see if i'm suited to the job, and that he'd confirm if i could work on the day i asked for. he also asked for my email address, phone number, and national insurance number, which i gave him. overall, it looked promising and i expected him to get into contact pretty soon.
its sunday* now (4 days later) and i havent heard from them at all, and when i asked my parents both recommend i make contact.
((*they're open on weekends, but are especially busy on saturdays and sundays apparently))
my dad said i should make a cv and then call, asking for the email address so i can send them my CV. he also said to do it tomorrow, due to the fact that saturdays and sundays can be very busy. this seems like a good idea as i can contact them without being too pushy/annoying. HOWEVER i have no real work experience and nothing to put on my CV. also, it seems very formal, and i got quite a casual vibe from the shop when i went in there.
another thing could be to just call and remind them that i asked for a job, but that seems very pushy. i could go in and double check that they got the right information, but that also seems a bit frivolous/unnecessary
another option would be to just wait and see if they contact me, or start looking at other jobs
please help! my parents wanted me to call today but i don't know how to go about it/what to do
