"Again, I agree with everything said in this video. While it is not an ideal economy for teens to get jobs right now, it reminds us that we should definitely try for a job that we enjoy doing."

"I agree with everything said in this video! I love that he went out of his way to try to find something he liked to do. I hope to soon get a job as a freelance graphic designer when school starts. I'm glad that Kyle found a job he was interested in. It makes you want to keep working your hardest."

"Again, I agree whole heartedly with this video. Though I am still working as a Busser at a local restaurant, I don't enjoy it as much as I would like to. I plan to look into an apprenticeship at the local Nature Reserve for Falconry."

"This video made some very important and helpful tips when looking for a job. I agree that when looking into your career choice, you should pick something that is of interest to you, and that you enjoy. Working on something that bores you or makes you unhappy will lead to an uneventful life and unnecessary stress. Though when you are just starting out, it is hard to find a job because you donít have the experience of others, and canít always move around to find a job you want. Sometimes you just have to take what you can get."

"This video was pretty good. It made some good points. It is very useful to me."

"I found this video to be interesting and somewhat helpful, yet not that realistic. It is so hard to get even a part time job with the economy right now; us teens have adults competing with us for the same jobs. Through my own experience, it seems like one must settle for whoever hires them. We do not currently have our own pick of jobs. "

"This video was very enlightening, but at the the same time, not very dictating and demanding. It gives helpful advice for finding work and reminds people to pursue things they actually enjoy. It concisely made the point with appropriate filming in a casual manner. "
