Well, earlier today/yesterday (2:52 am right now) i was actually offered a job by my best friend's cousin!
I cant remember exactly where he works but its the next town over and he is pretty much tech support for the local collage's for any tech problems.
I was actually suprised because he didnt even know i had any knowladge on computers up until today when i fixed my friend's computer, printer/scanner/copier, and set up the router. I'm only 15 so do you think this would be good for my first actual job? It would also give me experience and a reference later on in life if im trying to get another job!


What do you guys think?

Yeah, my sister's ex-boyfriend actually took enough computer classes during highschool that his senior year he was actually getting paid to work for the school and fix the computers, set up the internet and printers on computers, he helped set up the entire networking throughout the school. I am actually trying to walk in his footsteps and do the same. :]

In most cases yes, but my school district allows underage working if the student is only working 4 hours or less monday-thursday during scheduled class days. I can work as long as my employer allows on friday-sunday.

Yeah, which may not end up good because of my lack of patience =P
Although all downtime may be spent for personal use in the office!

I get to manage every piece of electronic equipment that is in my house. Oh hmm I don't know, maybe four computers with one that got its hard drive ripped out of. And my DS. And my Wii. And my Internet connection. And my router. And *insert gibberish here*

When you just want a job and don't care about what it may be.. it's real easy to get one..

Now, if you have something more specific in mind, things get a lot harder.. I had both experiences already, spent 6 months sending resumes till I could find something
