How to Find a Job if You're a Teen

I'm a teen. How can I find a job?

Everywhere you go (including online), keep your eyes peeled for possibilities. You may walk by a store front that has a "Help Wanted" sign. Look in the newspaper classified section. Ask your family and friends if they know of job openings. Check out job listings online on some of the teen-oriented sites.

Be creative. You might get a job that wasn't advertised because you saw a need and thought of a way that you could fill that need. For instance, you might see that the CDs at your local music store are always out of alphabetical order. Ask the manager if she'd like someone -- like you -- to keep stock in order so customers can find and buy what they're looking for faster. You might end up with a nice part-time job that could lead to something bigger in the future.
