Should I attach a cover letter to my application for my first job?

I am applying at a restaurant as a bus girl.
I recently turned fifteen.
This is to be my first job.
I have a couple questions.
1) Should I attach a cover letter with my application?
2) If yes, do you have any ideas for things I could include in my cover letter?

    Most definitely. Every single job you apply for, attach a cover letter. On mine I put something like thanks for taking the time to read this, why I’d be a good applicant, that good stuff.

    Cover letters are always good ideas, they state what position youre applying for and its kind of an introduction. Look some up online, there are super easy. A paragraph should suffice, especially for a bussing job. in the first sentence, just say, I am applying for the position of busser in your restaurant and attached you will find my resume for your consideration.

    for a bus girl job, most people won’t even bother with the resume.
    a resume should have general information about yourself and what kind of work you’re looking for. a cover letter gets more specific. in a cover letter, try to sell yourself as the solution to that employer’s specific problems.

    yah you have to include a cover letter in every application. you can state the job you are applying and your qualifications incliding your interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. for example you can say that you are outgoing, ambitious , honest etc. i wish you the very best.

    Yes, you definitely should. It would show them you are really interested in the job and could boost your chances of actually being considered for employment.

    Good luck! :)
