I Have a Job: From the Teen’s View

guy n computerTwo weeks ago, I wrote about how I was beginning my job hunt. Well, I can now say that I have a job. Interestingly, my current job is uniquely different from the criteria I laid out in my last article.

I just started (literally today) working at Wasabi Ventures as aMarketingAssociate. Wasabi Ventures is a company that specializes in venture capital and incubation for start-ups,especially technology and internet related ones. If you have been following this website for a while, you should remember Peku Publications‘ old name: Wasabi Media Group. See the connection? Wasabi Ventures helped create Peku Publications. Anyway, I thought I would explain how this job is different, yet still works for me as a teenager.

  • First of all, the job involves a fairly low degree of commuting. Sometimes, I will be able to work from home. When I can’t work from home, I will be working at an office close to my house. Sometimes, I will have to travel to events and such, but this won’t be too often, and transportationarrangementswill be made.
  • Next, I have managed to avoid food service and retail jobs!!!
  • This also works well, time-wise. It is a good part-time arrangement, because the nature of the job makes the schedule more flexible. I will be able to work around school and sports, to some degree. Obviously, some events are unavoidable.
  • Finally, this job looks really good for colleges and futurecareers. It is a position in marketing at a venture capital firm, so it carries a bit of weight. Although it isn’t a true paidinternship, it is still a really good position. Thus, it works out really well.
  • As an added bonus, I will be paid in incentives, as well as salary. I find that I don’t work as well without incentives, because I’m a lazy teen.

So, that’s the story of my new job. It looks like a good job for me, as well as showing that teens can find great jobs, they just have to look and apply themselves.
