Readers Respond: Best Answers to Why Should We Hire You?

Mature, Reliable, and Responsible

I know that getting job is hard for 13 year olds, but I just want to earn some money for once instead of asking my father for 50 things. I think you should hire me because I'm a fast learner. I love to learn new things. Plus, if I did something wrong, I would take full responsibility for my actions. I'm really mature for my age. My dad has seen an improvement, friends, family, etc. I just hope to finally get a job at something so I don't have to waste my dad's money all the time. (And I feel really bad most of the time.) I stay on task 100% of the time if someone has given me a chore or a job. A lot of people are always saying, "13 year olds rarely get jobs because of their age." The way I look at it, is that age is just a number. Wouldn't everyone like to see what that child's "number" can prove to you? I'm really looking forward to this.
