The best way to apply is to go onto the company’s/business’ website and apply there. It is important to list everything you need and provide all the information possible. If the company or business you are looking to working for does not have a website, if the website is down, or you don’t have direct access to internet, you can always go into the store, ask to speak to a manager and get a paper copy of an application. Phoenix Libraries typically are open and give access to computers.

Remember to always be polite, stay professional, and try your hardest. You got this mustang! Good luck!
