What to do?
well im gettin into computers alot (building, repairing, and other stuff like that) and am wanting to look into doing part time job with them. im only 15 so i probably cant get any jobs with the shops around town, so should i try to start my own little home buisiness or try to talk to the computer shops? i have already built several and converted a few, and also troubleshooted and repaired at least all the computers we have at this time. what should i do?
Maybe you could start a little business, that would be exclusive to your neighbourhood? Fixing/Repairing/Building computers for neighbours/friends?
At 15 you could legally work here in Utah so I would check the labor laws in your area and start talking to the local shops. Even if they only hire you to provide "floor help" the time you spend in a shop with good quality tech's is time well spent as you would have the opportunity to learn quite alot! And of course you could still have your own "home based" business taking care of your friends and neighbors machines.
Good points, Mntsnow.
Yeah, don't prejudge your local shops. We have lots of 'em around here, and they love to hire kids.. Especially kids with a lot of knowledge.
Listen to brandon184 and Mntsnow!
Never say never. If you never inquire about the job, you'll never get that first paycheck!
The only obstacle between you getting hired or not is YOU!
You seem bright and techno-minded, so there's no reason you can't come up with a job at a local place, today!
Go to a few and ask the question...you might be pleasantly suprised with the result!
Good luck and best wishes...
