Arrow Anxiety about working for the 1st time

Hi, I am 16 years old and I have some anxiety about getting my first job. I am looking to work at a small discount pharmacy place near my house called Harmon's (imagine a smaller CVS but without a phramacy). I worked at Best Buy a few months ago for about a week. After like my third time of going in I had a panic attack when I got home and quit the next day. I am anxious about meeting the new people and even just going up to the manager and applying. Has anyone else felt this way? What can I do?

Re: Anxiety about working for the 1st time

i think alot of people feel the same way getting a new job. I cant say just try not to worry, cause it comes natural.Try to think of the questions they might ask, and be prepared on how you might answer them. Wish I could give you more advise, but thats all I can think of right now. Good Luck

Re: Anxiety about working for the 1st time

you should get some books and info about coping with panic attacks as they may keep happening, basicly you need to accept the panic attack and relax your way thru it, breathing deep and slow

get some valium type meds as these are very useful,bothe for anxiety and panic attacks

you may do better in a job that doesnt involve dealing with the public

see the panic disorders board here
