Where can a 17-year-old find a job in Illinois?

In answer to your question 17 year olds can get more jobs than you would think

not alot of people want to work in fast food but that's one, and another really

good one is retail. Have you ever tried like Sears or Jc pennys something of

that nature retail usually hires 16 year olds. If you are still in school you

have a better chance of getting a job, than if you weren't in school .

I hope that helped

To give you a more specific answer, there are PLENTY of good jobs that a 17yr old can get, you just have to be persistent. I had an awesome job earning $7.00/hr starting pay at Chipotle Mexican Grill when I was 17 but they also hire mature 16 yr olds. I know that Abercrombie (kids store) hires at 17 as do the majority of grocery stores like Albertsons and Kroger. Many restraunts such as Chili's and Red Lobster hire hosts as young as 16. Most of these places offer significant employee discounts in addition to a good base pay.For summer jobs, Water parks and theme parks usually hire at 17 and offer a great base pay. Lifeguards make very good money and also offer you good skills for getting high paying babysitting jobs. If it seems like all the college kids are taking all the jobs, take the initiative to follow up all of your applications with a phone call to the manager within 48 hours to insure that they have indeed received your app and to see if they might be interested in setting up an interview. Make sure to turn in applications between Tuesday and Thursday and at stores early in the morning before the afternoon shopping rush and at restaurants between 2pm and 4pm so you don't interrupt the flow of mealtimes and have a better chance of getting to speak with a manager.

AnswerTry the malls or even check out a library. Maybe look on the internet, with help from an adult, and look up a job search, summer jobs, etc. There's probably zillions of 'em. Hey, why not the local movie theatre? There's air conditioning, lots of kids, and maybe even a free movie and condiments!

Algonquian Indians

What did the Algonquin women wear?

The women of the Algonquin or Algonkin tribe of the Ottawa river valley originally wore a dress made of two complete deerskins fastened at the shoulders and sides, sometimes with a belt. Sleeves were removable. Some women wore just a skirt of deerskin, overlapped on one side. Knee-length deerskin leggings were gartered below the knee with leather strips decorated with dyed porcupine quills.

Moccasins were soft-soled and had a seam up the front, along the instep, with puckered toes and narrow turned-down cuffs. These moccasins were often undecorated for day-to-day wear.

Hair as worn long and loose or in a single braid at the back. Headbands were not worn, but loads were carried on the back by means of a "tumpline" around the forehead.

When traders brought Hudson Bay blankets the Algonquins quickly adapted these to make clothing items, including leggings.

Algonquian Indians

What food did Algonquins eat?

The Algonquin did some farming, but were mainly hunters; they hunted, trapped and fished. The Algonquian lived somewhat outside the wild rice region which provided an important part of the diet for other tribes in the northern Great Lakes.

Although a few southern bands were just beginning to grow corn, the Algonquian relied heavily on hunting for their food which made them excellent hunters and trappers. They used fish to fertilize their corn fields and tapped maple trees for sap to make their sugar.

The Algonquin Indians that lived on the coast. They often had clambakes; a picnic where they ate clams, oysters, lobsters, mussels, and other shellfish. During these clambakes the Indians wrapped fish in seaweed then cooked it in a pit dug in the earth.

The Great Lakes Tribes were excellent hunters, farmers, and food gatherers. They ate wild birds, deer, moose, and rabbit and the men hunted moose, caribou, beaver, otter, and other small animals. The women gathered roots, seeds, wildrice, nuts, greens, and berries and grew corn, beans, and squash which were called "The Three Sisters" two other things they grew were potatoes, peppers. A main food was the wild rice the Indians gathered that grew in the marshlands around the Great Lakes. The Indians of the Great Lakes knocked off the grains with sticks so the rice fell into their canoes.

Native American History

Why shouldn't native Americans get money?

Compensation for the hundreds of Native American tribes are complex, and the answers vary is as complex as the number of tribes. Many tribes had provision in treaties with the US government that traded lands for benefits: monetary gain, good and services for tribes, and annuities for specified period of times.

Some benefits were meant to be applied for the duration of the United States government which can be for centuries.

Reservations are Sovereign lands and each Tribal group considers themselves members of a Sovereign Nation.Yet they also have all the rights and benefits ofU.S. citizenship.They get Tribal funds, just for being who they are, yet they can leave the Rez and come to town and avail themselves of all public services<yet even the Federal Marshalls are not allowed on the Rez unless invited by the Tribal police, who often decline to co-operate.Tribal Courts can be notoriously lenient, even with rapists and violent felons. I feel they want their cake, our cake, to eat it too,then ask for more and complain of racism and oppression when they don't get it.Where does it end?OUR country, which we fought for and won, is going broke.They are{with some notable exceptions} a pit of bottomless need, but we are not a country with a bottomless purse.Some thing needs to change, and soon. There is NO ABSOLUTE PROOF that so-called Native Americans were here first.It is more likely that 3 or more distinct groups arrived fairly simultaneously.REF:Smithsonian Magazine, Nat Geo and Many anthropological studies of varios U,S. and European universities.

Why were the Iroquois enemies with the French?

The reasoning why the Iroquois were enemies with the french are not so simple. When the Europeans first came to North America the Dutch established fort Orange; the English Jamestown (later burned down in the Bacon revolt) and the French Quebec (new France). Unlike the Huron/Wendake confederacy, the league of five nations (later six) or the Iroquois confederacy was the only one who resented the Europeans (which would allow them too indure for so long), Ideally by being decimated by various epidemics before they even directly encountered them. The Huron and Iroquois were long-standing enemies long before the arrival of Europeans, most likely due to long standing blood-feuds. The Hurons being the most power nation in the begining due to it being the centre of an extensive trade network, were and would remain traders until there destruction in 1649. The french traded European goods and weapons exclusivley with the Huron exclusivley, giving them a major advantage over the Iroquois in war. Although the Huron were devistated by war with the Iroquois and severly weakened due to their close relations with the French, the French would use its other Amerindian allies against the Iroquois during the Beaver wars to gain hunting territory, to secure pelts which where essential the Quebec ecconomy.

In short it was a series of long standing feuds that lasted well over a century that made them ressent the French (for than any other European power at least), in doing so the Iroquois to survive had too choose a European ally.... being the English. Although by the 17th century peace with there western and European neighbors took priority..... they continued raids for "mourning ceremonies" (to capture and refill their ranks) against the tribes known to them as "flat-heads" in the South.

Cats (Felines)
Native American History
Algonquian Indians

Name of the Indians known as the cat people?

Probably or possibly the Iroquois from the word Erie meaning log tail or cat people.


I did a little digging and can't find a reference for the Iroquois and any relation to 'cat people.' The closest I can find is the Aztec belief of the Jaguar, and Jaguar Warriors. Some of their very early (more Mayan) beliefs surrounded a "were-cat" or "were-jaguar" and that is the closest I can find.


There was an all-female tribe in Africa that called themselves the Cat People and used paint to make themselves look more feline.

What do native American stockades look like?

Not all tribes built palisades or stockades around their villages; these were generally confined to the eastern woodlands where timber was plentiful, but some of the Upper Missouri and Midwest tribes also used wooden poles to build a protective fence.

These could be enormous (as at the city of Cahokia) or smaller and full of gaps, which could be used to shoot arrows at attackers. Some also had platforms built at intervals as watch-towers.

Job Applications
Sales and Customer Service
Algonquian Indians

How do you meet customer needs?

Active Listerning,

Active listening is "listening with all three ears". To be effective, you need to hear what is being said AND understand emotions. Emotion is interpreted through tone, voice inflection, body language and your own intuition (gut feeling). Active listening contains three concepts: words, tone of voice and body language (55% of communication comes from our body language).

Here are some examples of using active listening to identify needs...

A customer seems to be confused about your service options (i.e., membership options, banking options, etc.) (need = help, identified through body language)

You have been dealing with an upset customer over the phone. The customer seemed happy but after hanging up you feel like they may not be 100% satisfied (need = further follow up, identified through your intuition)

A regular customer always wants to talk. He is always cheerful, uses open gestures, smiles yet needs nothing specifically. He asks you a lot of questions and is eager to share personally relevant information about himself (need = value as a person, identified by the body language, tone of voice AND words)

Effective comunication,

The key to communication is simple, clear, positive and enthusiastic. Customers choose to use your business because they have needs (I.e., they need an answer, information, support or advice, someone to talk to, a way of increasing their physical activity, a pass or membership, financial security, etc.). You find out what a customer needs by asking and then actively listening to their response. Your goal is to understand three things:

What they want

When they want it

How they plan to use it

Customers are not always able to articulate what they need. By asking key questions and probing for more information you can define their need.

Remember, ALL customers need to feel valued.




Once you have accurately assessed a customer's needs, your next step in the process of engagement is to efficiently and effectively MEET their needs. This means doing it right AND doing the right thing. This includes:

Knowledge of your products and services. This requires knowledge beyond your department to focus on identifying what your business products or services are (features) and how the product or service will assist the customer in enjoying value (benefits). Knowledge is key to recognizing and seizing opportunities to cross sell additional programs/services or value-sell related programs/services, both techniques to add increased value to your customer. Remember, the goal is to meet the customer's need. When we engage in cross selling and value selling techniques we are trying to suggest additional or complementary products/services that the customer will want or need. We are not pushing products. When done effectively, both the customer and the business win.

Problem solving and decision-making. Customers desire their need to be addressed as quickly as possible. The more people or time it takes, the greater chance of dissatisfaction. Do you have the skills, desire, knowledge and opportunity to solve problems and make decisions at the first point of contact with the customer? If the answer is "no", consider the following questions and strategies within your department:

Do you require additional training and understanding of the products and services your business offers? What can you do to make this happen?

Do you want to solve problems and make decisions on the spot?

Do you require support in understanding policies and guidelines and the kinds of creative alternatives you have to choose from?

At all points of communication with customers we need a 'what can i do for you' attitude',

Dealing effectively with customer complaints. Complaints are opportunities for us to learn what our customers expect from us (their perceptions), what is not working with our products/services/processes, etc. Those who complain are likely telling us what many may have experienced but never verbalized. We meet needs that come to us in the form of complaints by actively listening, identifying what we can do to resolve their problem (if we ask them we can assure our resolution actually provides value) and following up on what we promise. Take this one step further and share your learning - what was the problem and why was it a problem? If we don't know about problems we can't make proactive changes.

Finally, we need to recognize that customers have both tangible and intangible needs. It is our ability to recognize and meet the INTANGIBLE need, which creates real value for the customer. Think of intangible needs as customer motives. We are all humans and desire engagement at the human, versus business, level. Here are some examples of intangible needs:

Staff who are understanding, knowledgeable and helpful

Feeling safe

Feeling important (personally valued)

Social opportunities and interaction


Acknowledgment of urgency
