Looking for a Job
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     In your life, you will need to look for a job. Sometimes a job can be really hard to find. If you need help, there are places that you can go.
 
2     One of these places is an employment agency. This is a business that helps you find a job. Because it is a business, you will have to pay to get help. The fee can be a lot of money. When you go to an agency, you should ask if they charge a fee.
 
3     Sometimes an employer will pay the fee. This is the person you would work for if you got a job with them. Sometimes the fee may not be a lot of money. It would be worth paying the fee to find a job. Sometimes it will be too much money. If you cannot afford to pay, don't go to a place where you will have to pay to get help.
