I hope it's as nice where you are as it is here in Philadelphia.... a great day to apply for jobs.
One of the neat interactive things we do at myfirstpaycheck.com - jobs for teens is provide a forum for teens to give each other job advice through our survey. I recently posted a punch of new responses from teens like you - what do you think?
I think these teens make some great points, first impressions are important and you have to network with friends and family!
How's your job search going?
