It's good that you're interested in getting a job, and I kow how you feel. on the 7th September i went into my local spa/restaurant, Yes i was nervous, as you would expect a 14 year old to be, but i walked in. I said " hi, i was just wondering if you had any job vacancies?" yeah i know, posh right? but this place was very posh, and if you dont go in looking and sounding smart, then you will have a disadvantage.
apparently most teens have a job in the local pub as their first job, it can be intense and quite intimidating, but as long as you are concentrating you will be fine. I recommend visiting your local pub/restaurant as they are ideal places to start. if that isnt your 'cup of tea' as they say, then try retail.
If you do go for an interveiw, be prepared for a lot of questions, if you have every worked anywhere else, mention that, but dont mention why you stopped.
As for the CV, at the moment, no, it is not neccasary at this moment in time. I didnt have one, but that does mean there is more pressure with answering questions. Remember!!!! ASK QUESTIONS! ask what time you'll have to work, christmas, new year, pay etc. but dont ask too much about the pay. GOOD LUCK!
if you need anything please ask x
