Finding a part-time job - July 2nd 2010, 06:39 PM

I feel that I'm always running in circles with finding jobs. I tend to travel a lot and I think that managers and supervisors will think that I'm not stable enough. I've done A LOT of volunteer work but the only paying job I had was with McDonalds (One month). My sister says that there's no point in putting McDonalds on my resume since I worked there one month, two years ago. I agree with her but if I don't put it in my resume, then it would show that I have no actual job experience. Should I also put my volunteering experiences? (I've traveled the country with a government program doing volunteer work). But I feel lost since I'm 19 and I haven't really had an actual job and I'm scared that it's going to affect my opportunities of finding a job (Since managers want people with work experience).

I would recommend that instead of putting a work history section on your resume, just put a volunteer section on it. Managers would find it interesting!

Yes, I would put it on there. It says that you have work ethic and will likely be in it for more than the money.
