Part time job for high school student?

We Answered:

well restaurants and retail stores are good. I personally work for panera bread and the hours are flexible and the job isn't anything too difficult. I also don't know what your definition of "crappy" is but most entry level positions may be considered crappy. Something like being a cashier at a store is fairly easy, or stocking shelves. There are plenty of options.

High School Student, Part Time Job?

We Answered:

1. In answer to number one a job is a very good thing to have it shows a level of maturity and responsibility that only some high school students exhibit; However, if you choose to keep your job throughout the school year be careful. I don't think there is any thing wrong with trying to balance school and work but if you find that your grades are slipping you should quit your job. In the long run your education will be more important than the money you can earn right now.

2. As far as your boss giving you hours you want. It depends on the job if you work for a big company such as a department or grocery store you will not be able to choose your own hours only put in requests that may or may not be acknowledged. If you apply for a job at a small personally owned business the boss will be more willing to help give you hours that fit your own schedule.

3. If you are planning on leaving for a week during the summer you should check with your boss before you are even hired for the job to make sure that is okay. That way there will be no surprise!

4. Once again the hours you work and how much say you have in them will be determined by the employer that you work for.

I hope that helps you make your decision. I think its good that young people try to take responsibility and earn the money they want on their own. I hope all works out for you!! Good Luck!

Rodney Said:

Can a high school student get a part-time job at a law office ?

We Answered:

If you have a "mommy" or a "daddy" or other relative that is already employed at a law office, then you may have a chance at getting in.

You need basic schooling to work at a law office even if it is simply working as a Receptionist - there are basic things that legal professionals need to know so their employer doesn't get into trouble. For example, you cannot give advice without a license as an attorney or you can get prosecuted for "Unauthorized Practice of Law". There are other basic rules that all legal professionals need to know before they work in a legal environment.

Without an important contact, and/or without some basic training as to working in a legal environment, then -no- you probably won't be offered any opportunities.

My suggestion is to try to get into any type of an office environment for now as a high-school student.

I hope you are not entertaining the thought of law school in your future.

Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.

The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed DRAMATICALLY! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....

Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<

Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)

Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.

The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).

Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true" ultimate goal.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.

Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.

Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!

Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.

>>>>>I cannot warn you about this enough!!>>>You especially have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<

If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. >>>Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................

In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability! and scholarships!

Good luck.
