So, I’m almost 20 but due to my severe depression, anxiety, and of course, schizophrenia, I’ve never felt capable of working a job. That being said, I’ve recently started therapy, started taking the maximum dose of Latuda, and started a new anxiety medicine, and with all these things in combination I feel like sometime soon I may be capable of working a very part time job.
The job I’m considering right now is at my local library. It’s only 15 hours over the course of three days a week and It’s to be a library page, which essentially means you’re one of the people who organize the stacks, put labels on new books, and take care of returning books to their shelves after people return them. It sounds like a simple enough job, and the requirements are perfect. All you needs to know is how to organize things in alphabetical order and how to use a computer system, and even teenagers are allowed to apply.
The only issue I have is actually applying. I’m trying to apply on Indeed, and the job requires a resume. Because I’ve never had a job, I have no resume created, and I have no idea where to start with one.
I never finished high school, so I don’t even so much as have a GED to impress them with. On top of that, I don’t have any special skills like speaking a second language to offer. Because of my multiple illnesses, I may be liable to need some accommodations for my mental health, and I don’t know how I can make myself sound like a valuable enough employee to make taking on a mentally ill person worth it. Do any of you more experienced people have any advice? I’m absolutely clueless.
