Default career objective

Okay so I’m in going into grade 11 and I need a job. But the thing is that once I’m in school I have to work only part time so that I’m able to keep a level head. I’m going to start looking for a job but I’m just wondering if I should put in my résumé the deal with my school.

For my career objective at the moment I have:
'To acquire a seasonal position as a store clerk in order to gain experience interacting with both people and merchandise.

Would 'seasonal position' be correct? Or should I just leave it as 'full-time position' and then explain it to my future boss once the time comes around?

Thanks for any help.

"Seasonal Postion" is fine but "interacting with both people and merchandise" sounds a little off. Because you can't really interact with merchadise, can you?

"'To acquire a seasonal position as a store clerk in order to gain experience interacting with people. " sounds better to me.

I would make it clear you're a student.
Maybe "full-time position in the summer and part-time during school" or just say "full time position during the summer" and then say at an interview that you want to work part-time during school. Or don't mention the part-time at all until later.
