Get a job and training after school.

Woman working at a computer.

There are many programs to help you if you want to work right now. They can help you get ideas about what you want to do, help you plan to get a job, find places where you would like to work, and apply for the job. They can also help you get training and a job coach if you need them.

You can also look to your friends, family, and local businesses for help finding a job or even start your own business. You can ask for advice, look for job openings, write a resume, and apply for jobs at places where you would like to work.
