Looking for a job is one thing and looking for something you are interested in, passionate about and want to make a career is another. Start by thinking about what you love to do. Retail sales positions offer a great entry level position that also offer excellent long term career paths. You will have excessive interaction with people, customers, peers, supervisors and perhaps vendors, so be sure that you like working with others and in a team environment. It's important that if this is something that interest you, that you start talking to people everywhere you go, and start networking and asking people if they like their jobs, and if there may be an opening for you. Your favorite store, restaurant, bank and the car dealership nearby are just a few places to start. You should also check into benefits where you go and they may also offer tuition reimbursement or other resources to get you that GED and perhaps further your education, all the while building a strong and exciting career. Good Luck!
