Kid Jobs – The Old and the New
Along with service jobs, there are other 10 ten ways kids make money, some old and some new. Here’s a look at six through ten.
6. Filing – In many offices, the last thing to get done is filing. Kids with a good grasp on reading, the alphabet and how filing works are good candidates for these types of jobs.
7. Fast Food Jobs – With all the fast food chains, jobs for kids 16 and up are plentiful. Most fast food restaurant chains will allow children to work around school or sports activities.
8. Mall Jobs – Instead of junior clothing sections in large department stores, more and more junior stores are popping up. These types of stores are looking for kids with a winning personality. Take a trek to your closest mall and browse these stores for the ideal job for your child.
9. Automotive Jobs – As a car dealer myself, I have employed many kids ages 16 and up for inputting warranty claims, cleaning the showroom, and emptying the trash. Because wages for kids are lower, many dealerships will happily offer your child a job.
10. Apprenticeships – What better way to teach a child something new than offer a mentor along with an apprenticeship? Many artists, mechanics, cleaning businesses, and even newspapers will hire teenagers in the apprenticeship world.
