Basics

Now you’ve decided you’d like some extra cash—for school, college, clothes, computers, music… whatever.  As a teen, we want to make some money and be able to use it, no strings attached.  First though, we need to answer a few questions (see Job Search, Interviews & Questions To Ask Before You Look For A Job section) to help determine your qualifications for a job and find out how to find a job.  Second, check the Job Ages, Wages & Rules section: you might not qualify for some jobs because of your age.  Here are some general types of jobs, based on your age that you might consider.  This list is not all-inclusive and I’d love you to send me an email about other kinds of jobs, by age, to add to the list.
