You need money for everything - movies, concerts, food, surf lessons. So if you want to do more than lay on the couch this summer, you're gonna need some cash. Since you're too young to play the lottery, why not find yourself a summer job? Follow these tips and you'll be spending your first paycheck in no time!
Summer Job Search Dos
Make a resume. You probably have more experience than you think. Volunteer work, babysitting, walking the neighbor's dog - it all counts. Don't forget to spell check!
Ask around. About 80% of jobs aren't advertised, so make sure your friends and family know you're looking. They might be able to hook you up.
Do your homework. We know this sucks, but just take a little time to find out about the company you're applying to before you go to an interview. The interviewer will be totally impressed you already know stuff about 'em.
Summer Job Search Don'ts
Be a slob. Make sure you dress nicely both when you hand out resumes and when you go for interviews.
Answer your cell phone in an interview. In fact, it should be turned off before you enter the interview. If you forget and it rings, immediately apologize to the interviewer and turn it off without answering it.
Never, Ever Do This!
These are just a few of the crazy things actual people have done in job interviews!
A woman wore a Walkman during her job interview, explaining that she could listen to the interviewer and the music at the same time.
A guy said he would show his loyalty to the company by having its logo tattooed on his arm, if he was hired.
A woman interrupted the interviewer to phone her therapist for advice on how to answer the questions.

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