Jobs for High School Students

High school students are becoming more and more independent, and with this independence comes a need for money. Cell phone bills, gas and car insurance, saving up for college tuition, and extra spending money are on the minds of high school students across the country. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to find jobs for high school students because these young adults need a job that provides a healthy balance between work, school, extracurricular activities and friends. Here are some ideas to help high school students find the ideal job, whether it be part-time, summer work or a summer internship:

Part-Time Jobs for High School Students A full-time job during the school year is almost always out of the question, but maybe you have enough time to work part time while you are still taking classes. Most high school students with part-time jobs work approximately 10-20 hours a week. If you want to work during the school year, look for weekend jobs or jobs that don’t require you to work hours too late at night – homework should still be your number one priority! You will also want to find an employer who can give you the flexibility needed to accommodate your extracurricular schedule. Your high school guidance counselor may also be able to help you in finding a job. Most jobs for high school students are hourly positions in the service industry. While not the most glamorous, these jobs offer great experience and flexible schedules. Here are some part-time jobs for high school students:

Summer Jobs for High School Students With classes out of the way, high school students have a lot more options in the summer. Some may choose to work full time, while other students seek out a part-time job that allows them to go on vacations, take summer school courses, or spend time with friends.

  • Retail can be either a part-time or full-time job during the summer. One perk of working in retail is the employee discount. This is especially good for high school students on a tight budget. Some retail jobs are commission-based, such as at cell phone stores or cosmetics counters. WorkInRetail.com is a good source for retail jobs.
  • Restaurant and Food Service jobs can also be either part- or full-time.
  • Outdoor jobs may include caddying at a golf course, lifeguard, camp counselor, or lawn and park maintenance. If you are a sports person, you may also enjoy giving tennis lessons, helping coach a little league baseball team, or being an umpire or referee. Check your local park district, zoo, beach, or golf course for more outdoor summer jobs for high school students.
  • Administrative and Clerical jobs for high school students may be available in the summer at any sort of office, such as real estate agencies, insurance companies, doctors offices, car dealerships, banks, etc. These jobs may involve answering the phones, filing papers and other office work.
  • Temp Work may be a good summer job for high school students who are interested in administrative work. Temporary workers are sent out on assignments of varying length (one day, one week, the entire summer, etc.) to fill in for employees who are out of the office or to help work on special projects. OfficeTeam and Manpower are two temporary agencies which offer some entry-level jobs that may interest high school students.

Summer Internships for High School Students Many determined high school students are hoping to get lucky and land a summer internship. Keep in mind that you must work hard to get a high school summer internship, because you will be competing with college students who have already taken coursework specific to their major and job. Often times students get internships through their parents, family friends, or neighbors, so tell everyone you know what you are looking for. If gaining experience is more important to you than money, unpaid internships for high school students are also an option. Search online or stop in at local companies and ask if they need any additional summer help. Unpaid internships might also be available at a local community organization or non-profit. Check out your town’s web page or go to idealist.org to find these summer internships. Many universities also offer research opportunities and internships for high school students. Finally, some companies have internship programs designed specifically for high school students. Many of these internships are local, most require that you are at least 16 years old, and some are even paid! Here are some of the companies that offer summer internship programs for high school students:

If you don’t get an internship, and the typical entry-level, minimum wage jobs for high school students don’t appeal to you, just remind yourself that everyone needs a first job at some point in their life. Work experience, no matter what kind, is something to put on your resume, and it will help you in finding your next job. Besides, you may find that you actually enjoy the fast-paced and customer-oriented atmosphere in these types of high school jobs.

    im 14 years of age and i need a job now

  • Janet Hammut October 21st, 2009 at 8:40 am 2

    My brother is also 14 and he thinks he needs a job. you are still young and don;t need a job. My friend says that you should star mowing lawns.

  • Merissa Umbrella October 21st, 2009 at 8:42 am 3

    YOU SHOULD START MOWING LAWNS!

  • Tim Wilkins October 21st, 2009 at 8:47 am 4

    the anwser is 2 what is the question. i think that you should star mowing lawns and doind jobs on the side, such as babysitting, or doing things for your parents. Since winter is almost here you could shovel driveways. 67 was a good year! Or do things for your parents or relatives. this way you can make money but also choose when you want to work. because lets face it….jobs are difficult especilly when you get to high school and have a lot of homework to do. it becomes difficult at some point. but most of all enjoy your childhood right now. because once you get to being a teenager it becomes difficult!

    I’m 18 and have worked in numerous jobs. Cashier is the worst job ever dont do it. Look for a job in stocking shelves if u wanna go retail. In my opinion Busboy is the best job, i was working at outback making tips and 4.50 an hour i got around 300-400 dollars every 2 weeks

    By the way you have to be 18 to be a busboy unless its “off the books”

    why are you guys putting that you need a job on this website? employers aren’t looking around the comments of these articles for future employees. Sorry if you need a job, but complaining here isn’t doing anything.

  • Pauline Bealor March 8th, 2010 at 7:10 am 23

    I am a single mom on unemployment and can’t tell you how badly i need income. I am living week to week with these checks and still not making it. Yes, I am serious (couldn’t be more serious) I truly need employment.

  • mickstahz mendoza March 14th, 2010 at 3:28 am 24

    babysitting, mowing lawns, weeding gardens, pruning, mulching, and etc…. are the good for you guyyzzz.. but i think weeding gardens is the best coz of the higher demand..

  • AJ March 22nd, 2010 at 1:24 am 25

    im 18, and ive been working since i was a sophmore in high school. ive held the same job since i was 15, and ive been balancing full time school with my two jobs and extracurricular activities as well. now in college, im a full time student and my experience in high school balancing a job and school basically taught me how to prepare for the busy life i have now, with the hectic schedule i hold. i think that holding a hob in high school, as long as you keep up with the best you can do on your schoolwork[ i was in ap/honors classes all four years] is one of the best things you can ever do for yourself.

  • Bryce March 23rd, 2010 at 6:55 pm 26

    I’m almost 19 now. I’ve done volunteer work and I am extremely bright, unfortunately my circumstances work against me. I do not have a home, I live on my own, I do not have a car or a lisence. I need a place to live, which means i need a job.

  • christian April 5th, 2010 at 11:39 am 27

    If you are 17 or younger, FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS on school work. You may not think you are learning anything, or just hate school, or love it! But join clubs and do everything to make yourself look better for college applications. Then, go to school overseas somewhere cheap! Learn another language! Learning another language is such a great expierience and it makes you more appealing to any market. Voulunteer for your state represenitive or seators office. Get a internship if possible. Get some experience!

    If you are 18+, check into the Armed Forces. Do a few years and use the GI BILL to pay for college. Not to mention they pay BAH for an E-5 which is about 1300 dollars a month for housing after they pay for tuition. That GI BILL lasts four years! Or stay in if you like it… Tuition is 100% free while you are in, but expect to do college online due to the work schedule. Go warrant officer in the Army and fly helo’s you don’t need a degree but you do have to pass some tests and put in a flight packet, but it is doable.

    Study, Learn, and do something you enjoy!

    i am a 15-year old girl and almost 16 this coming month of june ..i need a job for my enrollment this coming may 15,
    what job would be suitable for me ??

  • Tiffanie April 8th, 2010 at 3:33 pm 29

    I’m 23 and have worked quite a few jobs… my first was when I was 15 and it was working as a PCA (personal care attendant) at a foster home with a girl that had FAS. I made $11/hour and worked 35 hours a week. You can find a lot of good jobs when you’re young at group homes or through any company that manages the staff for people who need special care. Not the most glamorous job, but they usually pay good. I thought stocking shelves was a great job too. Can listen to music while you do it usually 🙂 I also worked at this cool, local coffee shop/restaurant/wine bar/art gallery place and I loved doing that. If you can find a laid back local place like that then food service is not bad. I thought cashiering sucked ass and so did waitressing at Perkins of course lol.

  • Charlotte April 30th, 2010 at 9:57 am 34

    I thought I’d let the Kristy girl know that it depends where you live what the legal age to work is. In Kentucky, you can be 14 years or older; you just have a limited number of hours and you can’t work dangerous jobs that require a lot of experience. So just research the laws in your state for work and don’t give up. I’m only 15, and I’ve applied at a few places already and working on a job application as of now. Good luck to everyone else!

  • renee May 11th, 2010 at 11:13 am 38

    I must say, I agree with Christian. Thankfully, my parents didn’t MAKE me work when I was in high school, though I did teach lessons. Use your time in high school to get involved there and make sure you stay up on your school work. After high school, college, grad school, however far you choose to go…you have your ENTIRE LIFE to work. Enjoy your youth while you can!

    And to Makallah, I understand you can’t wait to be emancipated and find a job but I would HIGHLY focus on school. You’re not going to find a job that will allow you to buy or even rent a house – you’ll be lucky if you find one to pay enough for rent on an apartment. AGAIN, everyone can’t wait to grow up but honestly, once you do grow up and have student loan payments, house/car/phone/utilites/etc payments, you’ll long for the days when all you had to worry about was getting your paper written and turned in on time. Find a job where you can work weekends (all retailers would LOVE it) and spend the rest of your time focused on school activities and getting good grades.

  • jacob May 11th, 2010 at 1:12 pm 39

    #1-stay in foster care until you are 18 #2-finish highschool #3-YOU WILL GET MONEY(maybe more because you are in foster care) from the government to go to a technical college or somewhere else #4-graduate college #5-be able to pay for your own way without help #6-help others

  • Paul McGuinness June 20th, 2010 at 2:41 am 43

    All you guys who are looking for work who are still very young. i.e. young enough that you shouldn’t have any responsibilities (I except that some of you may be highly honourable and trying to help support your families) – why are you so desperate to get a job?

    The fact that you want to work is great, but what are you going to do with the money you earn?

    If you are under 16 then you can’t NEED the money.
    So any of you out there that are working, or looking for work, when you get paid you absolutely MUST save at least 10% of what you earn, so you can re-invest it later.
    Don’t make the same mistakes that the generation above you made – the must have NOW generation. Start at the very begining of your life doing it right. NEVER borrow for anything, no credit cards, no car loans, you don’t even need a mortgage!
    The average age of first time house buyers in the United Kingdom is now 39 years old, that’s 21 years of work after leaving college (18 years after leaving university). When you look at what you pay back on a mortgage it’s two – two & half times the price you actually pay for the house!
    If you ALWAYS keep some of what you earn for yourself (to invest) then surely over much less than 21 years you could amass enough money to buy your first house for CASH!!

    Whatever work you do get always make sure that you do it the best you possibly can.

    If you get one of the neighbours to pay you a few cents for taking out their trash every day (or any other low prestige job), it may hardly seem worth the effort. But if youare always punctual, polite and happy on the outside (no matter what is going on inside your head) and always maintain a friendly yet professional relationship with them then two things WILL happen: your neighbour will build trust that you are a competent individual and give you more responsible and rewarding jobs; Other neighbours will notice what you are doing, or your first neighbour will tell them (best ever FREE advertising), and they too will ask for your service. That’s how small businesses turn into business empires.

    Whatever you end up doing NEVER let anybody put you down for the effort you are making. Always ask them ‘would I be better off doing nothing?’

    I’m only 14 but I know what I’m going to do when I get out of school I’m going to get my dad silverado diesel and plow driveways in the winter and then do handyman a woodworking jobs in the summer and save up for a travel trailer and live there until I can either launch the buisness farther or get accepted in a higher paying job elsewhere. I plan on then using the money to save up for college. Is that cool or do I need a better plan?

  • Taylor July 23rd, 2010 at 8:29 pm 51

    Some people under the age of sixteen NEED to get a job. I know a lot of you are saying to mow lawns, babysit, etc. Those types of things, however, just don’t cut it anymore. You say we’re too young for our own responsibilities, but that’s simply not true. I’m 15 years old and I have to pay for my permit, license, car, insurance, new school clothes, school supplies, school fees, etc. I can’t just rely on my parents because A) It’s just me and my mom, and B) She’s out of a job as well right now.
    I have a two year old little brother and right now my mom’s concern is getting the things that he needs. I’m older and can take care of myself, which is why I’m trying my best to find a job. Some of you privileged people don’t understand what it’s like to be under 16 and having to work. So instead of acting like we’re being desperate and eager to grow up, help us find something.

  • MommaTam July 30th, 2010 at 2:23 pm 52

    My son is 14 and he also swears to needing a job like NOW.

    You guys have your whole life to work. And trust me, once you’ve been out there in the working world for some years, you will begin to MISS these days when you didn’t have to work.

    As long as you have a roof over your head, clothes on your back, and food on the table, you do not NEED to work. Enjoy being a kid while you can. Your only responsibility right now is going to school and getting good grades. Treat THAT as your full-time job and everything else will fall into place in due time.

    Best wishes to you all!! xx

  • Leland Sargent August 2nd, 2010 at 12:34 pm 53

    For those of you that are under the age of 16, the only job that you are ale to get is possibly at a local family run restaurant, a theme park, or the classic and my personal favorite, McDonald’s. Working at McDonald’s will teach you hard work and also make you want to succeed, working at McDonald’s teaches you one main thin, and that is that you do not want to work at McDonald’s for the restof your life, it will inspire you to succeed in life so you aren’t stuck with a shitty job your whole life, after there, you now have a reference and a little bit of experience and it will be significantly easier to get a job in Retail in your local mall when you turn 16 and are ready to leave

  • Geo August 14th, 2010 at 9:01 pm 54

    You guys wonder why you don’t have a job? Well here’s the reason why.

    1) Most of you need grammar classes because most of you dont even know how to spell or capitolize. Who’s going to hire someone who can’t even do the things 5th graders can do.

    2) If you’re age is not 16+, No one will hire you because it is illegal. Unless you work under the table.

    3) Most of you probly don’t know your rights as a minor. (I am a minor myself, 17 years old). Read your rights! Don’t take no for an answer! Don’t give up either!!!

    4) DON’T LET OLD PEOPLE BRAIN WASH YOU! Just because your young doesn’t mean you can’t multi-task. It also doesn’t mean your stupid either.
    Adults seem to think teenagers don’t have a clue in life, They want you to stay in school and have no experience when you get out in the real world. Then when you have that big tuition bill for college… Your going to wish! And they’re going to realize they made a mistake.

    5) Old people are scared of you taking their jobs so they use the excuse of school first. DUH! School first, we get it, but jobs second! And that’s what they don’t seem to get.

    P.S. TRY WAL-MART, If you have one in your town. They love young people!!!

    -Common sense out-

  • alex August 16th, 2010 at 8:22 am 55

    I’m 20 years old, living in Canada.

    I am a university student and my hard work seems to have paid off. I am working a summer job making very good money.

    My advice is to talk to people (anyone and everyone), and if anyone gives you some information about their company, remember it, and write a good cover letter, and use what they person from the company told you.

    Remember, an education never expires. And an education does not have to be university or college. You can go to school and learn a trade (plumbing is in high demand right now). Or even try to take a couple courses on how to operate construction machines.

    Good luck, and remember, that a high school job may provide you with temporary happiness, but you don’t need a car at 16. Save that money, invest in your education, and buy a car when you are making more than minimum wage.

  • sjs September 3rd, 2010 at 7:58 pm 58

    what is the legal right of an employer to schedule an 18 year old who is still in high school, who is a good student (no didn’t flunk, started school late), and who does have a part-time job at a fast-food restaurant because of the hard economic times hitting the family, and the employer is scheduling this student during school hours. Employers response is “too bad” find your own replacement.

    Some of you are so funny. You want a job so you can buy a video game. Wow. Just focus on school. Im 20 and I have more bills then you can imagine. 600 rent, 50 electric, 120 insurance, 250 groceries, 150 cell phone, 200 gasoline. And that’s every single month. Get a good education because as bad as this economy is you are going to need it.

  • Pete November 13th, 2010 at 2:03 am 70

    Oh and another thing; why are all of to sitting here and complaining about how you need a job? You think people are going to be looking around this website and say “wow bob needs a job” and magically have all of your contact information and call you and have you come to work for them? No. If you want a job get out there and look for one. Try craigslist, monster, yahoo, the newspaper. Posting on here is not going to get you a job!!

  • Jasmine November 30th, 2010 at 1:30 pm 73

    I don’t get why you people are on here saying:
    “I’m ________ years old and I need a job”
    WTF are you tripping on? Get off your ass and find a job. -____- quit being computer slouchers, and find a job. Put in applications, do your research.
    I’m 15 years old, and I have a part-time job during the school year, and the same job, but full-time during the summer making $10/hr, because I don’t just sit on the computer, complaining about how much I need a job, instead I went out and got myself a job. Maybe you all should do the same?!

  • Markis December 1st, 2010 at 1:48 am 74

    […] I’ve read a lot of your comments back, and they’re just purely ridiculous. If you’re not 16, then get […] out, cause you can’t get a job LEGALLY. Secondly, to get a job, you have to call THEM, not have them call you! You must dress up to impress the co-workers and most importantly the hiring manager. You have to do some studying and research on the job you will be applying for, so when the interview comes around, you’ll have more of the intelligence to know what you’re supposed to say when they ask you the question: “Why do you want to work here?”. Then give them your reason WHY. And even tell them you need a job, because the truth coming out, instead of hiding it, will give the Manager confidence in you. And lastly, you all have to know that you’re going to get a million “No’s”, until you finally get one “Yes, you’re hired”.

  • Ashley December 22nd, 2010 at 4:54 pm 80

    I agree with the people that are telling others they need to get up,go out and do it, instead of complaining.. everyone at some point needs one, but its good to put a application out and call every day or even go in as ask them were your application is at in the process because then they see how much you really want the job. Im 17 my dream was to be a model but that didn’t so now that i have messed up my schooling i have to get my g e d some how and get a job, but its hard because most places want 18 and up but that just make me look harder.

  • Amber December 29th, 2010 at 9:45 pm 81

  • valerie January 3rd, 2011 at 12:58 am 83

    You can ask your counselor at school for help or any college! Find out what you love the most- this is the best way and then volunteer if there are no openings.You might try a library.If you know what you love and want to do i can help you for free… i find my friends jobs easier then my own guess its a gift don’t worry. You are good at lots of things we all are its just harder to figure out what we have a passion foe and matching it!You said you manage a church nursery so ask all the people thee and put up a post if you want to find more work with the same people you already see once a week! Its a goldmine out there.. public transportation goes most places now and it saves you a lot for fun things!

  • iris A. January 3rd, 2011 at 6:24 am 84

    it’s been amonth since me and my friends decided to look for part time jobs we are also a 16 year old students. we thought about why we wanted a job first is that we need to learn how to earn money by ourselves so that we won’t rely much on our parents.
    second by doing such communication skills and self confidence are being developed. third we gain experiences that would really help us get by through times. fourth through experiences we get we could apply it in our daily school works especially in english, social studies, math, TLE(technology and livelihood), science and more.
    fifth when seeking for jobs it does not mean you need to give up your teenage days, it actually help a lot in filling up our teenage years….
    well these are the reasons why me and my friends wanted to look for jobs….. in fact our school also did some kind of activity that students were supposed to find jobs and learn from it… we were 12 yrs old back then…. it was kinda fun…
    SO ANY ONE CAN HELP ME AND MY FRIENDS FIND A JOB???
    PRETTY PLEASE!!! WE REALLY NEED IT TO PAY FOR OUR SCHOOL PROJECTS AND SUCH AS A SENIORS??!!!
    please help

  • Petra January 3rd, 2011 at 3:25 pm 85

    I’m a 16 year old girl who is looking for her first job. Almost any job is just fine with me. As long as it pays well I’m fine. Anything from being a waitress, to being a cashier, to anything in those categories or more. Thank You.

    you guys should listen to Paul Mcguiness and stop freaking out if a job is right it will come to you

  • anon January 7th, 2011 at 1:22 pm 88

    None of you guys truly NEED jobs. Some of us went without cars and cell phones our whole childhood. When you have rent, electric, cell phone, internet, and a baby on the way then you will know what the need is. Thanks to the high school kids getting all the jobs, when they don’t even need one, my husband (almost fresh out of high school) can’t find one and I just lost my high school grade pathetic excuse for a job. We’re living on our savings right now but since you guys keep getting jobs and doing crappy jobs at them, people who actually need jobs can’t get them and the homeless population is rising because of you spoiled little kids. Stop trying to get jobs so people who truly need them can get them.

  • Excelsior January 14th, 2011 at 1:16 pm 89

    As someone that works in HR, its very difficult to find reliable HS students. We’re not against hiring them but they need to show that they’ll show up for work each day. Talent always rises!

    @ Geo you are brilliant
    I was only on here because I was looking forlaws about 16 year olds going to college full time and this popped up. I am looking for a job though and this was supper helpful.
    Finally, to those of you who spell like the six year old I babysit, If you fill out an application like that you’re not going to get a job, and if you talk like that at an interview people will think you are stupid. I am sure that is not the case. Just start filling out applications and you’ll find something.

  • Felix February 11th, 2011 at 9:36 am 97

    There is not anything you can walk to? does your town have any kind of bus system? It seems to me if you really wanted to earn money , take what u can get. If you don’t have work experience when you are applying , put down any volunteer work or hobbies, school activities etc. Everybody has to start somewhere entry level jobs provide training so it’s all good.

    JOBANCY (www.jobancy.com) is a website that specializes only in part-time jobs (starting out in California). It might be worth taking a look at. Make sure to check your state laws for employment laws and age requirements.

    Okay, to all of the retards out there, you can get a job under 16. In some states, such as Hawaii, the minimum age requirement is 14. Some states can be 16, but I don’t know other states.

    Just to clear the fog here.

    My 17 yr.old daughter has been working since she was 15. At 15 it is hard for you to get a job. Look at banquet centers and become a server. For those of you who are older look into nursing homes, it may not be a dream job but it is a job. And remember when you do start work if u are under 18 yrs. old your employer is NOT allowed to take local taxes out of your pay.

  • ZaRiyah June 29th, 2011 at 3:28 pm 119

    I am 14 years old and I am going to put ads in the newspaper for a babysitter job. To all the Pre- teens/ Teens out there that need a job,

    START BY DOING SIMPLE THINGS LIKE BABYSITTING AND MOWING THE LAWN. EVEN TRY TO CARRY GROCERIES FOR THE ELDERS AND GOOD THINGS LIKE THAT…

    AND YOU CAN’T JUST DO IT FOR MONEY, DO IT BECAUSE YOU MEANT IT AND THAT YOU LIKE TO DO THOSE TYPES OF THINGS!!!

    I want to do babysitting because i like the laughs of little kids and the joy that they would bring you.

  • ZaRiyah June 29th, 2011 at 3:39 pm 120

    First of all, Ms. Kaitlin or Ms. NO LIFE people do care because when they get older, it shows on their Resume’ or their college transcript for them to have a very good job.

    Now when you said,”No one cares,” that’s what you think… Let everyone have a FREAKIN’ CHANCE TO SAY WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY, IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT I MEANT, THAT MEANS, AN OPINION…

    I’M NOT TRYING TO BE MEAN, IT’S THAT WHAT YOU SAID WAS WRONG…

I am certified for Red Cross CPR all ages and babysitting, and make $3000-$5000 a year. If you love kids, this is a really easy job. good luck!

  • vicky October 4th, 2011 at 4:13 pm 127

    I am 16 about to turn 17 i have done babysitting jobs but they just dont last. At my age it is time to look and see where i am going in life and what do i want to do. Having a job is not easy at times but it is something we all have to deal with because it is life…. Finding jobs are not easy when you are two different sides of town but sometimes to get somewhere in life you have to do what is nessesry to get anywhere now days.

  • Corey October 11th, 2011 at 12:41 am 128

    I’m 17, been mowing lawns and doing landscape work since I was 12. Somebody above said that mowing lawns doesn’t cut it? They would be wrong. Landscaping is VERY HARD and tiring work and isn’t for everyone that is for sure (it will make a man of you). But if you can push a lawnmower and hold a string trimmer that’s the only real requirements you need. Obviously it helps if you know how to do your job well and deal with finances and customers. If you get into more complex tasks, such as masonry I recommend that you put in hours as an apprentice and practice your skills before you go out and try it on a customers house. Oh yeah, and to all of you who say this is “Mexican work” I’m blond hair, blue eyed and do my job better than %99 of the Hispanics in my area. So don’t dis the guy pushing the lawnmower, at least he has a job, unlike you. Go out and make money and stop waiting for someone to hire you.

  • Leah November 23rd, 2011 at 7:00 pm 131

    All I have to say to you all is, “wow.” I’m actually pretty unimpressed with the reasons most of you think you “need a job”

    Hah, do you really need a car or a phone? My rents pay for my phone, sure, but I don’t feel the need to have a car, to be honest.

    The real reason I want a job is so that I can pay to rent or maybe even buy a bassoon and learn it, and I’m hoping that I can get scholarships for music- I already play Tenor Sax, Clarinet, and Some guitar and oboe (of which is being fixed!) but for quite a few months now, I’ve wanted to play bassoon, and I hope to fulfill that dream!

    dude, i’m 15 and now I’m really seeing the reason that our generation is so underappreciated when it comes to jobs.

    oh yeah, at your next job interview, when they ask you why you think you want or need that job, hah, at least i’ll have something reasonable to say.

    Music Major, here I come(:

  • Ebony R. November 27th, 2011 at 12:47 am 132

    NO OFFENSE BUT I DON’T THINK PEOPLE THAT DONT HAVE NO HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA SHOULDN’T GET ANY GOOD PAYING JOBS. IF THEY CAN SIT AT HOME WITHOUT GOING TO SCHOOL DOING THEIR BEST THEY COULD & JUST PLAIN GAVE UP THEN THEY DONT DESERVE NO JOB. PEOPL WORKED THEY ASSES OFF IN HIGH SCHOOL JUST TO GET WHERE THEY NEED TO BE AND WHEN THEY DO THEY CAN’T GET ONE DESCENT JOB TO CALL US BACK, BUT THEY WILL LET A UNEDUCATED PERSON WITH NO HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, NO EXPERIENCE JUST WASTING THEIR LIFE.

  • Daisy Zhao February 5th, 2012 at 3:20 am 146

    Hello! I am currently 16 years old and the reason I need a job is so I can start saving for college, since I doubt I will have a chance at scholarships or get much money from the government since I have 3 older brothers, all of which have student loans. I have been looking for a job for about 1 year. You might think I’m young, but I was just born late.. I have one more year before I’m off to college. Please and thank you.

  • Dave February 17th, 2012 at 4:04 pm 151

    I am 47 and have a job. Its an engineering job. Because when I was in high school, I decided about my junior year or so that in order to support myself and my future family, I needed to get a college degree…. I was not that great of a student in high school. Frankly I couldnt see myself going to college when I started high school. but by the time I graduated high school, I had a goal set to get a 2 yr degree. That was the stepping stone to 4 yr degree later on. I want to encourage ALL of you readers here to never give up on starting a college degree program. You CAN do it no matter how unprepared or lost you feel. There are pre-college classes you can take get you started. Remember a journey of a thousand miles started at mile zero…..and your reward will come when you FINISH your degree. So get busy. Go to a college admission office and see how you can get started.

    Hey, I’m currently 16, and i’m looking for a summer internship or a job, Preferably in India, But abroad can also be an option. I want to do it for the experience and also to save for college. Academics are great, so are my extra-curriculars. Preferably, a science related job, though. Thanks.

  • alex April 21st, 2012 at 11:09 am 165

    To those who are making comments that involve babysitting or mowing the lawn, there is no way that you can actually get money for doing that these days. Also, not all parents pay their children to do chores because they’re poor that’s the reason why most of us are even bothering to look for jobs in the first place. So please don’t tell someone to go mow a lawn when they’re just trying to buy the things they want while their parents are struggling to pay for their needs. Everyone has the right to want something.

We have moved in with my aunt to try saving up money to get out on our own, but we havent had the best of luck.

    The way some of you guys spell and write it’s no wonder you don’t have a job. If you really want somebody to take you seriously, improve your literacy skills. I’m only fourteen and I’m seriously disgusted by some of your spelling. Nobody wants to hire a person how can’t write, spell, and read well.

    I have two brothers. One is 15 and has been mowing a doctors lawn for 1 or 2 years now, and he gets pretty decently paid. My other brother is 16 and works for a catering business. He gets paid about 7 or 8 dollars an hour for in-store work, and 11-15 dollars for catering gigs. Another great job is baby sitting (that is what I do) and I get paid pretty well for that. The little children at my church adore me, so I babysit them, and then their parents spread the word to their friends who have little children.

  • Rachel August 4th, 2012 at 6:59 pm 191

    Hello, my name is Rachel, I’m 17 years old and I enjoy working with kids. I already have a weekend job all year round however, I’m looking for another source of income during the summer before it’s too late to get a week-day job (when school starts). A week-day summer job would be preferred due to the fact that I’m keeping my original job as a primary job. I consider that my primary job because it’s during the weekends, so during school it’s not a hassle to complete my homework in time. A temporary weekday job would best fit my schedule and because of that I’d be reliable to have as an employee. Only during the summer, from Monday-Thursday I can work a week-day job. The reason why I’m searching for another job is because even though I enjoy hosting little kid’s birthday parties with 2 other qualified hosts, party bookings have slimmed down due to summer, which is understandable. Another reason why I need another source of income is because since I’m growing to be more independent, I’m saving up for a car that can get me from point A to point B without breaking down. I can’t rely on my parents to be responsible for being there when I need a ride, anymore. My twin brother and I don’t have enough money even combined to get a car that functions properly. The only car I know how to drive is an automatic because I have my license already. My mom owns that automatic car which is always gone from 5am to 8pm during the week. My dad is going to be employed in a couple of weeks and since he’s been studying for his future job all the time, he rarely has time to be a father, do personal things and then teach his daughter how to drive his stick shift. Once he gets the job, he’s not stable enough to put money towards even one car for my brother and I to share until 4 months have gone by, when his job considers him stable and they give him a raise. Getting a car for his teen kids is not the first thing on my father’s mind when it comes to getting this new job. The bills have to get caught up with since only my mother has been working. My dad said he would sell the stick shift but only if the new job is the type of job that gives him a company’s van. They won’t give him anything related to the company as his own until they know he’s stable at that job. So he won’t be able to sell the car and split the money he gets for it, in half for my brother and I to get a car each until those four months pass. Getting a car would make it so much easier to drive anywhere i need to when I don’t have someone to bring me there. I’m open to any retail stores that need an employee, or any kind of waitress or hostess would be lovely. Jobs near Edison, 20 minutes driving distance away from Rt.1 near Skylark and Edison High School? Thank you very much for reading 🙂

    to the people who foolishly say high school students dont need jobs(reading your comments) you have to realize that not everyones life was ice cream and cake at 14-15 years old maybe they need jobs because their parents just arent being parents or other circumstances im 18 by the way.

  • Amanda April 3rd, 2013 at 8:13 am 216

    I am 25, so my high school jobs were a few years ago. But I do have some advice for those of you looking for work.
    1. Volunteer, volunteer, volunteer. It’s good for your community and gives you some sort of experience to talk about on your resume.
    2. Get someone to help you with your resume. If you have a sibling/cousin/aunt/uncle/etc who is in university/college for a program where they are required to do multiple work placements or internships, ask that person for their help. They have to update their resume so much during school, so have likely become a bit of a resume-writing wizard.
    3. Apply for jobs. If you want to work in a bookstore in a certain area, go to bookstores in that area and drop off your resume. If your main goal is making money, apply anywhere and everywhere. This article lists some of the most common jobs for high school students. Look (yes, you have to go out and look for them) for these types of companies and fill out an application, attach your resume, and repeat with 50 other places. Eventually someplace will want to hire you.

  • Amanda April 3rd, 2013 at 8:30 am 217

    Just to add: when I was 16, I worked 2 summer jobs (camp counsellor and housekeeper at a hotel on weekends) and had a complete breakdown the weekend before school started because I had spent every single day of the summer break working. After some convincing from my parents, I called in sick so that I could have a day off to do laundry and get stuff ready for the first day of school.
    So yeah… Don’t overdo it on the working hours. You don’t get summers off in “the real world”, so enjoy them while you have them! I miss summer vacation! 🙂
