You Have Work Experience!

You are involved in many activities that give valuable work experience. Examples from home, school, after-school, community involvement, and work help prove to the interviewer that you can do the job. Before your job interview, make a list of activities you are involved in, then list related work experience or skills and qualities you gained to help you on the job. Use these examples in your interview.
