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 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.
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.
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!
