Work Experience Credit and Job Search for Students

Earn Work Experience Credit

Interested in earning high school credit for your part-time job?

If you are 16 years or older, are currently employed in a part-time job, and have taken or are currently enrolled in a Career and Technical Education (CTE) class where what you have learned in that class is directly related to what you do and use in your job, you are able to get high school credit for your work experience. 

If you are interested, please fill out a Work Experience Application Form using the link below:

Once you submit your application, Mrs. Hastler, EWHS Worksite Learning Coordinator, will review your information and let you know if you might be eligible for this opportunity.  If you are eligible, she will work with you and your employer to complete required forms to set up your work experience for credit.

Job Search Information

Students can use the Resume tool in Naviance to create their first resume.

Mrs. Christensen can help you by reviewing your resume for an employment application.

Due to the dynamic nature of job openings, unless a local company contacts EWHS, we do not research, nor do we post, part time jobs for high school students. 

The Edmonds School District sponsors a Youth Employment Fair in May. We host more than 30 local businesses who have openings for part-time, summer, and full-time entry level positions.

Students should come prepared with their resumes, as well as an "elevator pitch" to introduce themselves to potential employers. Some businesses do on-the-spot interviewing and hiring! Companies have included: Fred Meyer, QFC, Panera Bread, O'Reilly Auto Parts, City of Mountlake Terrace, Pedalheads Bike Camp, Nordstrom, Red Onion Burger, Taco Bell, AMC Theatres and more.

- Many jobs for high school students are found via word-of-mouth. Utilize your friends and family to find out about local job openings. Talk to the managers at businesses and restaurants which you and your family frequent. Stop by and drop off your resume or letter of introduction. Many local small businesses do not post job openings - they wait for interested applicants to contact them!!
