First, ask yourself what you want — a job, an internship, or a volunteer opportunity? Do you want to make money, build your resume for college, gain career-related experience, give back to your community? Your answer to this question will help you determine whether you want a job, an internship, or volunteer service.
Second, think about what you are interested in — e.g., animals, science, medicine, computers, music, children, seniors, nature, art, etc. and make a list.
Third, evaluate the kinds of things you are good at/enjoy doing. Think about what you would be willing to do in order to get experience in a particular field. What kinds of things would you like to learn how to do? Write these things down. They are clues to help you know where to apply. For example, are you good at meeting the public? Are you athletic? Love computers? Enjoy working with young children? Want to learn about the world of politics and government? Enjoy spending lots of time outdoors? Love to read and write?
