How can a teenager find a summer job?
Okay, I am 17 years old (turning 18 in one month) and I am about to graduate high school. I did very well in high school (AP courses,etc) and will be attending the best university in the state. I am definitely a smart, hard-working person but I am having a huge problem finding a job.
My only real job experience is 6 months at a clothing store. I also have been babysitting for 5 years and had a short junior camp counselor position last summer.
I am not picky at all, I just want is a minimum wage job but I am having a lot of difficulty. I have applied to about 30 jobs so far. I applied to all kinds of positions that require little or no experience: camp counselor, coffee barista, pet store associate, doctor’s assistant, waitress, etc.
Advice PLEASE? I am desperate for a job right now. It would be a lot easier if I was already 18 I think.
The economy is tough and no being 18 wouldn’t help you a whole lot. I am 21 and have been unemployed for the past 2 years I just found a job this past week that interviewed and hired me. It’s really hard out there. If you don’t find a job by the end of may I would consider doing some volunteer work at a local shelter at least then you would have something to do this summer. Good luck

How can I find a summer job im 14?
im a bit shy and i rollerskate,but i’m not sure how to go about offering lessons.If there are any other jobs you guys can think of please suggest and add tips.
…. I can’t drive…
i don’t mind kids,i’m cool with gardening,and walking dogs.But i don’t know how to go about like advertising
Do you like kids? Maybe you could babysit for your neighbors or something. Are you good with animals? You could walk dogs, or pet sits. Find your likes and your strengths. Do you have a green thumb? You could try taking care of peoples plants while there gone. Maybe if you decide to babysit, you could take the kids to a roller skating rink, getting them involved in something you like.
Is there a website where i can find a summer job in uk?
i’m not english, i need to practice the language but i have no money to spend over a month in the uk.
I need to find an easy job that requires a simple spoken english.
Jobs are scarce and non existant for those who’s English is not fluent.
If you are not an EU citizen you will not be able to work in the UK without a visa anyway.

I’m having a difficult time finding a job this summer, Any suggestions to me?
Well heres a suggestion…If you live near a university or college, call them and ask if they have summer camps like Upward Bound Program or Gifted, Talented students and see if they would hire for a mentor in the summer. If they do hire you, you get free room and board on campus, free meals, all the time in the world to do nothing, and you even get a nice check at the end of 6 weeks. Just a suggestion though.
What if I can’t find a summer job?
I’m a first-year university student studying mathematics. The studying itself isn’t too stressful, but instead I’m absolutely terrified of the prospect of finding a job during the summer months.
Ultimately, I’ve never had a paid job before. However, I’m doing my best to improve my employability in the meantime – alongside studies I volunteer at a local charity shop for 11-12 hours a week (experience + a good reference), and I’ve recently passed my driving test, which is helpful because it means there are more jobs I can apply for. My plan is to print off a ridiculous amount of CVs, then during the Easter break (basically all of April) hand them out anywhere and everywhere.
However, even with good grades and volunteer work, that might not be enough to obtain a job during the summer, given how tough the market can be, and the idea of not having a summer job is almost too horrible for me to contemplate.
So what do I do if I fail in finding a job? Of course, I could always volunteer at another charity shop during those months (unlike employers, they always seem to want extra help), but I’d ideally want to be earning some money alongside the experience.
‘…You can give private tutoring to people that need Math help or you
can try getting in work study in your school.’
Good advice but if the asker wants to get paid, this would class as self-employment and he would need to refer to places or websites like hmrc and businesslink in regards to that for more information.
Recent graduate Cindy Longwani says ‘…Many graduates are suffering as a result and doing jobs that school leavers would do on summer breaks…I started looking for graduate scheme jobs…I would get response and even invited to interviews but would not be successful…determining that God will remember my sacrifice…Today I work as an internal auditor in John Lewis head office Corporate Credit Audit department ‘ =

It really depends on the state you are in, as all the labor laws are different. Try small places, like Cold Stone Creamery (if you have that). I know they hire kids that are 14 and older.
You HAVE to get your school to give you the okay to work (good grades are a must).
What are some summer job ideas for a 15-year-old?

How to find a summer job?
i’m 15 and need a job in the summer, i need to pay for my car, school stuff, etc. any advice on how to make finding one easier?
Any work you do and earn money is a JOB.
Your options are limited. Most businesses want you to be 16 to hire you for gainful employment.
Time to be inventive,
My suggestions to you:
Make up fliers and pass them around in your neighborhood.
Offer to do whatever work it is you want to do, such as :
Computer work, Babysit, Clean Garages, Organize Cupboards, File Papers, Wash Cars, Mow Lawns, Pull Weeds, Tutor the neighbors kids, wash Dogs, Dog sit, Clean the Pool, Assist the elderly, whatever…
Post first whatever it is you want to do or are good at …
However, You should keep your options open and make a decision after the persons call you instead of not giving them many reasons to call.
Your neighbors who might hire you do not have to be residents, they might be local businesses that need a little job done. Do not be afraid to ask and apply. You won’t get a job if you don’t try.
How to find a summer job?
What’s the best way to find a summer job? I’m willing to do just about anything, but surfing job sites has generally only found full-time positions, not summer or part time jobs. Anyone have any advice on the best way to find a summer job?
Also, I know I’m a little late in starting… I didn’t know I needed one until now.
Also – I’m 16, have good people skills, am in good physical shape, and am taking the hardest classes my school has to offer and excelling in them.
U just go to where u would like to get a job and is hiring and u can fill an aplication . U also mite want to apply at different places , that way your chanses r increesed.

Job sites for a 15 year old for summer?
I am 15 years old and I am looking for a job site to find a job for the summer. The thing is though I am looking for my first job, and I have been out of the country for the past 2 years and just came to the states recently, so therefore all my references don’t even speak English except for my family. I already applied for some jobs, but they weren’t really the right jobs for me. I just need to know where a good site is to find jobs in Mankato MN. Thanks for the help.
A few things:
- References can be anything, including teachers. Family isn’t suggested.
- The fact that you say that the jobs you’ve applied for weren’t the right job for you shows that you aren’t being realistic. At this point in summer, you should be happy with ANY job.
- A good place to start is to just get out and look around. What stores do you frequent, and do they have job openings? You’re going up against adults who are unemployed, so just know that you may not get one this year. Summer jobs should be secured BY the end of May.

Trapped over the summer… Trouble finding a job… Parents driving me insane…. Help?
I’m nineteen years old, and I’m unfortunately one of those university students who are stuck living with their parents over the summer and living in residence in the fall… My university is in a city two hours from my hometown. I’m going to be starting my second year of my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education… My parents have always been supportive of my choice in career. Music’s the one thing that has kept the drive to keep me going in life and one of the few things I can actually do “right”.
The problem with studying away from home, is that the things that change over there affect you as soon as you go back. My dad had lost his job a few years back, had a temporary one before getting laid off, and then got another a few days after I started classes. But then, when I came home for Christmas break, I had discovered he hadn’t been going into work because he was “getting sick”. When I came home a month before that, I had discovered that they couldn’t afford the house that we had lived in for 17 years anymore, and that they’d have to move into an apartment some time later on. I was upset that my mother did not tell me this through all of the emails she had sent me…
So, of course, when I returned to my hometown in late April, I had to get used to the change of a small house with an upstairs and privacy, to a small apartment with no upstairs and little to no privacy. My father had still not been working, so income was difficult to scrounge up for my mother, who was the only one working… My plans were to start looking for a job immediately, but my grandfather’s eventual death had put those plans on standby… So job hunting started later in the month of May, and no matter how hard I’d look, no job opportunities were opening up, save for one interview, which I didn’t pass…
However, I wasn’t completely hopeless… My band director from high school called me up, asking if I could work for him, doing band inventory and other odd jobs for him in the office. I worked from June 9th, 2011 to June 30th, 2011. My paycheck for all the hours I’ve worked should be coming soon, and it should be at least $1600, which makes me very happy.
Unfortunately now, I’m back where I started. And I just don’t know where to look anymore… I’ve tried looking at places all around neighbourhood, and many of the job websites for my city, but there’s nothing that interests me or fits any of the skills I have.
I’m also having issues with my parents, and their attitudes towards me lately.
For example, just this evening, I went to complete my second hour of practicing my clarinet in the bathroom. (There’s no space in my bedroom) I had finally received some summer repertoire, and the piece is very technical, so of course I have to work on the difficult sections over and over. When I finally finish, my mother asks if I’m done, to which I reply, which causes her to sigh in relief. Offended, I ask what the problem with my playing was all of a sudden. To which she replies with a snooty tone: “Do you really have to play the same song over and over?” Now, I’m pretty sure it’s common sense that you can’t get a piece properly prepared if you don’t go over it several times. I’d go to a practice room over at a university, but the closest one is quite far away, and I’m nervous about leaving sheet music on the bus by mistake.
My dad is mostly sitting on his ass doing nothing. I don’t see why he shouldn’t get a job. Mom needs to stop feeding his alcohol habits.
They have a need to buy beer and clamato on Fridays and get hammered. I understand they want to have fun, and mom wants to relax after a long week at work, but I don’t enjoy listening to loud music and constant drunken lectures by my father every Friday. And the fact that they HAVE to watch a movie late at night with the sound BLARING is just pissing me off! It sickens me that they think just because they’re the parents they can do whatever they please…
Does anybody have any ideas about what I should do about this clusterfuck? Or do I just have to suck it up and get over it?
Wow, this sounds like a rough patch in the road for ya. In the job aspect just make as many relationships with people as you can. Being connected in any society helps significantly especially when job hunting. Also be as friendly as possible to random people that you bump into, who knows you might hit off a conversation with them and bang! They happen to be a manager at a local music shop and hire you b/c they liked your socially open character. I know it sounds a little unrealistic, but many of my friends have had this happen to them as well as myself. Especially now-a-days, when jobs are hard to come by, it seems you have to know someone to get anything. Or have you ever thought of doing volunteer work (playing music) at retirement homes during there social hour? That can lead to potential jobs, plus it can be another asset to put on your resume’.
“You will never find time for anything. If you want the time, you must make it.”
Best of luck to your music career. You sound like you got a stable head upon your shoulders. Just make sure you put it to good use! When your stuck in a rut, maybe sometime try not to think how am “I” going to get out of this, instead think of it as a chance to stay there and help other people avoid getting caught in that rut. I think a big problem with society is that we happen to think to much of ourselves, how to benefit ourselves. Every-once-in-awhile take the time to do an act of complete selflessness, even if it is as small as holding a door open for someone.

Where and when do you go to find a summer job on a fishing boat in Alaska?
I know in most cases you just show up but where and when?
There’s a booklet you can order for about 35 bucks or so that gives you addresses of the places to go. If you’re going to get a job you want to get up there a.s.a.p. The book says most of the jobs are available at the docks on the boats (rather than the gutting and canning factories). The factories don’t pay near as well anyway. Sorry but I can’t remember the specific towns. From everything I’ve seen it’s one hell of a rough way to make money. Unless you’re seriously salty, you better look somewhere a little more tame.

Where can a 14 year old find a summer job?
I am 14 and am saving up for a Mac. I live in Lake Oswego, OR and need to know what stores will hire me. I live near a jamba juice, a few convienince stores, some small grocery stores and some big corporate grocery stores like Albertsons and hole Foods. What companies hire 14 year olds? I need to make a good amount of money and only want to work for the summer. How much does the average bagger at a grocery store make?
14 is a bit young to be hired by a company. Maybe you could tutor students in lower grades in a subject you’re good in. You could also pet sit, do yard work, run errands for the busy or elderly.

What would be a good place for a 16 year old to find a job during the summer?
I’m looking for a summer job. I’m only 16 years old. What is there to do for someone my age besides being a counsler at a camp?
I would look at all of your local plant nursery’s and landscaping companies. They always higher on a teen or two through the summer. You get to be in the sun outside and usually it is just taking care of the nursery by watering all the tree’s and plants or moving them from location to location and helping the other employee’s load the trailers and or trucks before they head out to the job site. That and keeping the place clean and tidy and typically you will make decent money for being only 16
I was wondering If there were any websites that would help my 16 year old son find a summer job in california?

I don’t want to sound like a brat or anything. But I really want a summer job for next year. I am 15 and I will be 16 by next summer. I really wanna get to handle my own money, learn responsibility, etc. I just have a problem. I would NOT be a good babysitter, I’m not good with kids, and I’m not good at taking care of kids (plus I’ve had a fear of babysitting since I saw When A Stranger Calls)….I’m not good for outdoor labor, like lawn mowing/outdoor care. I’m not really fast enough to be a cashier. I hate to sound so lazy, but the only thing I’d be good at is secretary-like jobs. Please don’t ask me to try these other things, I have in other ways, and im SIMPLY not cut out for babysitting/lawn mowing/etc. Right now I volunteer at the library, and I have to do stuff that involves writing info, alphabetizing, picking out books….its very low key work. Calm, low key, low energy type job…I would work @ library, but you have to be 18 where I am. I know they don’t give out full scale secretary jobs to teens, but is there any titles/jobs like that, that I could find?? Thanks!

Does anyone know a good place to find summer job openings in south Orange County?
I have looked at the career center at my school and the choices are very limited (mostly internships, tedious jobs that no one wants like janitor, etc). Also, I have looked at summerjobopenings.com, indeed.com, etc and have found that most jobs either require you to have work experience (of which I have none) or to be 18 years or older (I’m 15).
I’d be willing to do most jobs, really, as long it pays alright, is in an air-conditioned area, is not tedious and extremely boring (extremely, I could deal with a semi-boring job), and is past 10 o’clock in the morning. I do not mind working late.

Need to find summer job!!!!!?
im in 8th grade and i need some stuff for high school like NEED (shoes clothes contacts)
im lookin at like a job at the mall and my mom doesn tbelieve that will happen so i wanna prove her wrong
Well if your in the 8th grade at most your 13 or 14.
So…its a) illegal to be hired in most states that young
and b) even if some jobs could hire at 14, they really looking for older kids so they don’t have to fill out extra paper work because of your age.
At your age you can really only do things like babysitting (put out ads near in elementary school around u before summer) or other yardwork, like mowing the yard or cleaning pools. You can make big bucks from that stuff!
What is a good way 2 find a summer job for a high school student.?
I am looking to make some money this summer and i will work at any place i can. i just dont know the whole process to do so.
If you are at least 15, then I think a grocery store would be your best bet. Walk in to a grocery store, and apply at one of the employment kiosks at the front of the store. You could also just walk in and ask for an application. Make sure you have the phone numbers or people who are willing to serve as references for you. Teachers, pastors, and other people of authority might be good references if you have never had a job before.
Where is the best place to go for a summer job for teens?

Where can I Find Summer Jobs?
I am 15 years old, and I’m looking for a job to do in the summer. I’m afraid that I’m not old enough and no one will hire me please give me some ideas. I live in North Carolina.
I’m not sure what the laws are in your state, but you may be required to get a working permit. Many businesses will hire 15 years olds, such as grocery stores and fast food places. Start applying now, because many people will begin applying in May and June, which in my opinon is too late. Also, go to your local Job Council if you have one; they may be able to help you find a job. Your school counselor may also be able to help you find a job and, if needed, get you your working permit.
Since jobs are so hard to come by these days, I would reccommend making both a resume and cover letter; these things help you stand out from other applicants. Address the cover letter to the person who hiring, and be sure and get their name. I would also reccommend sending a thank you letter after dropping off your resume and cover letter; this shows the employer your desire for the position.
Another option you could do for the summer are odd-jobs. I know you’ve probably been told this many times, but babysitting/washing cars/walking dogs/etc. Is a good way to earn money and build up your resume.
You could also volunteer, which also builds up your resume, making the employer more apt to hire you.
Hope I helped, and good luck!
Where can i find a summer job at a camp hiring people 18+?
If no one knows of a place for that can you suggest a search engine to look for jobs for 18+ people?
In addition to the other suggestions, perhaps you can merely type into yahoo search ‘camp’ and then your town and state and find some camps that way too.
And here is a website for the American Camping Association: www.acacamps.org/ and can click on ‘Find a Camp’. Good luck, and bless you for wanting to work as a camp counselor!

I have no friends in high school and feel pathetic, what am I supposed to do?
The actual school and grades isn’t a problem at all, I have mostly A‘s and B’s, so that’s not a concern. But…..it’s a long story, I’ll try to shorten it down.
Last summer my mom and I moved from New York, where I lived my whole life, to Texas so she (my mom) could get a job. We live with my aunt and uncle and their kids. So basically, I left everyone I’ve ever known to go live with family members I barely even know.
Now, the new high school I go to is really……”cliquey”. I don’t seem to “fit in” to any of these cliques. Everyone keeps to themselves here, and each person is indulged into their own group or clique. These people usually share interests, dress the same, ect. There are a lot of these at my school, usually the cliques consist of 4 or 5 people but sometimes like 8 or ten. I don’t have what I would honestly call ”friends” (as in; people whom I can relate with and share common interests with and such.) Since being in high school I have found it difficult to make friends. The people I know usually talk about dumb stuff and subjects I’m not that interested in, or they’ll never like, really talk to me but just bicker on and on about random silly stuff so it’s never a full conversation I have with them. Some of them physically hit me, and I understand that they’re joking, considering they end every sentence with “just playin’”, but that’s just not cool with me. Some people, who I don’t even know, verbally abuse me in the halls, for no reason. Like today, some random dude threw something at me and it hit the back of my knee. I just ignored it and kept walking to class. While I was walking into my next class, I heard him say, “I bet he liked that…” What the fuck does that even mean!?
I know stuff like this happens at EVERY high school, but I digress.
I guess I just feel totally and completely isolated from everyone. I haven’t hung out with someone in months, or gone to the mall or the movies, or basically done anything fun. I never even use my phone anymore, since I have no one to talk to.
Is anyone else experiencing what I am? I just don’t know what to do with myself. Even my mom is constantly telling me that I need to make friends and get out of the house, but she’ll never understand what I’m going through.
Sorry for the long read, by the way.
I switched high-schools too and hated it the first year, but then the next year it got better mainly because I tried a little more and stopped pouting. When it comes to Texas people take pride in where they live and if you look like you don’t want to be there they aren’t going to want you to be there either. Never underestimate the power of school pride when it comes to Texas because that is one thing that ties in all the cliques together.
The thing about highschool is that it really doesn’t matter, because in college you lose most of those connections anyway and make more real ones. But to help out with your current situation: I found friends through school clubs. It’s the easiest and least stressful way to connect with people I promise
The thing is you only need to make like a few friends to get you started. Just start a conversation with someone you’d think would respond back and mention that you are new.
I need tips and advice on moving responsibly?
HI, I’m going to be 21 years old soon, and currently live in a bad situation. I have to move out by this next summer. Where would one move to that will only have 1,000 dollars to move, no credit established and has a very important dog in her life to her. My dog requires good care that I want to provide her with, and I will like to move somewhere that will be best suited for her and for myself. I will have a graphic Design Associates that I will like to also find a job in.
My brother lives in Brooklyn New York, which would probably be awesome if I could crash at his place until I find my own for my profession, but like I said my dog is very important to me, and I would cry knowing she is cooped in a small apartment all day. She is a active spaniel. I would really appreciate the advice, because I’m sooooooo confused and beating myself up with the the time slipping by.
Run some ads on craigs list looking for someone to room with you are going to first and last month rent and sometimes a deposit to move in a place on your own also most utility companies will also charge deposits i would crash with brother save up some more cash and then establish my home
I would like to audition for a disney channel series but need to know how and where?
Where to start?
I’m in NC could you find any auditions in NC?
Later this summer I’m going back to New York any auditions you can find?
I know most likely I’d get cast in a 2013 series, but I need to know how to get an agent, where some auditions are, and anything else that is important for this type of job.
If you happen to know a site that has list of disney channel auditions all over the USA that would be quite helpful as long as it’s legit. Auditions for an Agency as well. Please do not say start off with commercilas because Zendaya from shake it up got on a series first. Thanks
thx but could’ve gone without the pedophile remark…
thx but could’ve gone without the pedophile remark…
Your best shot is to go to LA and hustle like all the other aspiring actresses. Or you can put yourself on YouTube and sell yourself that way. Either way, you have to do something that sets you apart from others. Disney channel is also full pedophiles so, I really don’t understand how you could aspire to work for such a deceitful brand. Good luck!
how to get a record label?
i know its more than tough to get a record label to sign you. I have tried almost everything – I’ve made demo CDs and press kits and sent them all over the map but i havent heard anything back. I live in sort of a dead town with almost no way out. most people around here live here for their whole lives.
I cannot do that. i have big big goals that i need to accomplish. i want to be a singer. i write my own music and i honestly think i have something. the way i see it, the only way out of my town and into greener pastures is to spend a summer interning at a record label in new york. I have applied for multiple internships there and i think i have an OK shot at getting one. IF i do get the job, would that be an appropriate way to get my foot in the door? After i’ve been there a while, is it innapropriate to give my demo cd to the label, or ask to pay for some studio time?
i just really need to find my way in. (and in no way am i “dissing” my town; it’s just not the place i need to be right now)
Make a couple of videos, put them on you tube, email them to everyone you know and if you have truly awesome “one in a million” talent, and some luck, a label will notice you. However, if you have anything less than awesome talent, you will need to pay your dues like everyone else that got a deal and work hard at perfecting your craft. Interning at a label is a good idea, but it will take more than that. You will need to perform a lot at any club you can in order to develop a following. Recording with good people, having a good web presence with videos is important too. Interning will help you meet the right people, but competition is fierce out there and labels always favor the artist who is the complete package. What is that complete package? Solid radio ready songs, strong vocal, great look, seasoned performing skills, hard work ethic and a great attitude.
