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!

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
