Awesome After-School Jobs

Whether you’re saving up for that iPhone or just want a little spending cash, Kidzworld’s got suggestions for some awesome After-School Jobs. Check them out!

The key to finding a great part-time job is deciding what you’re good at. Do you like working with the public? Are you good with your hands? Do you have any special talents? Think about what kind of work you see yourself doing then send around your resume.

Babysitting

Babysitting for family or friends is a great way to get some initial job experience. You get paid to play games and have fun. And once the kids are in bed, you have some time to yourself. Best of all, babysitting experience shows your future employers that you’re reliable and mature—no parent would leave their kids with someone they didn’t trust.

Retail + Fast Food

If you’re a people person, the retail industry is for you. You could work at a trendy clothing store or a busy food court. You could even bus tables or work as a host at a restaurant. Retail doesn’t pay very well, but working as a waitress or coffee barista will guarantee some tips to supplement your pay.

Other Jobs

If you like working outside, think about working in construction, or try your hand at house painting. Sometimes a special skill will qualify you for a unique job. If you’re a great swimmer, get your certification and teach lessons! If you like animals, see if your local shelter is hiring.

Don’t Forget!

Make sure you can balance your work hours with your homework. School should always be your first priority—you don’t want to be flipping burgers forever! The best jobs require a lot of experience and training. Now is a great time to get a jump start on your career. Good luck!

well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
