How to find a job: How to find a job with no work experience.

Visit to find a job near you.

Hi, I'm Amy. I work at Snagajob and today we're going to talk about how to find a job. Specifically, we're going to talk about, "How do I get a job with no experience?" We hear this question a lot from first-time job seekers, teenagers and folks that don't think they have any job experience.

Do you really not have any job experience? Think about it. You've probably done some volunteering, lawn care for the next-door neighbor, babysat for somebody up the street—these jobs are perfectly fine to include on an entry-level resume so don't discount the experience you have from working those positions.

One job seeker that we met actually was fifteen and looking for her first job and she used her experience baking biscuits with her family every Sunday morning as work experience to apply to a biscuit-making job. That's perfect! That's the kind of initiative that employers want to see in a first-time job hunter. They're looking for somebody who is smart and who can apply themselves, and in this instance she already had specific experience doing the job that they were looking for.

Look for any skill or experience you can highlight as work experience. Just because you weren't paid for it, doesn't mean it's not valuable to employers and for finding a job. For most entry-level jobs or summer jobs, employers are really looking for a great attitude, so make sure you bring that bring whatever work experience you already have and you should be pretty well set.
