Id say 25 max. I didn't get my first job until 21 coz of uni1
Im 20 and am starting my Junior year of college. I've never had a job and now its hard to find the kind I'm looking for since I haven't any experience. I refuse to work in a fastfood restaurant. That has nothing to do with my future career working in a big office firm
i think 29..
I think most people should have had at least one job by 18, even if it's just a couple weeks at a summer job your parents got you or tutoring/babysitting during high school. No matter what it is, it's something to put on your resume, plus the experience you get is something you can't learn in school. You start to understand what it's like to get $10/hour and to have to budget that money, which is a good life lesson for the future. Many places (retail, fast food, local events or festivals) hire part-time students during Christmas break or summer break, so why not start there? Search online for what's available near you and apply as soon as you can.
I got my first job at 14 (part-time summer counsellor), did a shitload of volunteering (and babysitting) during high school which has really helped in terms of experience, and during my university summers I worked at the Royal Bank of Canada and then at a small not-for-profit organization in my city. Making money was great and made me feel more independent, but honestly it was the experience of getting and keeping a job that really helped me learn and grow.
