The Mesa County Workforce Center (MCWFC) has a variety of no-cost services to help you find success.
Evaluate how you will get to work on an ongoing basis (car, a ride, bus, walk, bike). Be aware of any limits during your job search; if you plan to walk, you will want to look at businesses close to home.
The legal age to work in Colorado is 14, but there are limitations do the work you can do as a minor. Please reference this guide or visit the CDLE Youth Law website for more information.
Connecting Colorado is the state job search site used by all Colorado Workforce Centers. Once registered as a user on this site, you will be able to search the thousands of jobs listed on this statewide database. Visit the Job Search page for more information.
Keep a log of everywhere you applied (with dates) and who you talked to at that business. Make an action plan and set reasonable goals. For example: I will apply to 3 fast food companies this week. I will follow up with 5 employers where I have submitted applications.
Make every contact count: dress to impress even when dropping off applications!
