Looking for a Summer Job? Look No Further!

It's that time of year when you can do as much fun stuff as you can pack into two months - but fun doesn't always equal free. If begging your 'rents for a few extra dollars or getting an increase in your allowance is out of the question, you may have to find yourself a job. We have the info on some great places to work during your summer vacation, so check 'em out!

Summer Jobs - Fast Food Equals Fast Experience

An ice cream parlour or a fast food joint, like McDonald's or Burger King, is the place to start if you don't have any work experience. You'll pick up valuable customer service skills, which basically means you learn how to work with other people. You won't be able to pig out on burgers, fries and milkshakes until you're on your break, but you'll certainly build up an appetite by smelling all the food you make and sell. Another fun place to work is the movie theater - once you've finished popping buttery popcorn and sweeping the aisles of garbage, you can enjoy a couple of movies for free!

Summer Jobs - The Great Outdoors

If you'd rather work outside, you can be a camp counselor or take on a ton of different positions at an amusement park, including concession staff and rides operators. If water is more your thing, and if you're certified, you can spend your summer days as a lifeguard at the beach or the local swimming pool.

Summer Jobs - Be Your Own Boss

Most states require you to be at least 14 years old to legally work. So for those of ya who aren't 14 yet, there are plenty of jobs around your 'hood! You can babysit or petsit, be the official neighborhood dog walker, sell ice-cold lemonade, wash cars or hold garage sales, which will give you retail experience to work in the mall next summer. If you don't mind a little labor, you can mow lawns, do yardwork, paint houses, lug trash and recyclable items, or deliver newspapers. You'll get plenty of exercise, maybe even buff up a little, and get a nice tan to show off when you go back to school in the fall.

I'm not afraid of my parents. Up to a year ago I was a little afraid of getting punished but not anymore.

I'm not afraid of them. I'm just afraid when they'll start thinking I'm worthless. But if I had to choose, I guess my mom since I live most of my life with her.
