2. Babysitting is an excellent job. You can sit at night after school and work on weekends. You can take kids to their sports and dance classes. Best of all, you will make cash. The way to find these jobs is to send out flyers, spread the word to every adult with kids that you know, and post your availability on social media. There are some agencies that you can sign up with online, but do this with your parent’s assistance.
3. Similar to babysitting is the job of mother’s helper. Some moms do not want to leave their young children alone with a teen. However, you can work in the home with the mom there and occupy the kids while mother cleans, rests, or does paperwork.
4. Sell your old electronics. There are online garage sale sites on Facebook. With your parent’s help, you can post your old stuff on Craigslist. Some places like Amazon Trade In Store accept used cell phones and IPad. Sell your games at Game Stop. Of course, there is always eBay.
5. Be a dog walker. This is a great summer job. Neighbors and relatives who leave their pets home while they are at work would appreciate that their dog is able to go out and have fun. See if there are any elderly in the neighborhood who have dogs too. You can take on several customers at a time. You will get to be outdoors and enjoy the affection of animals.
6. Work as a camp counselor. You will be responsible for the care of a group of kids. This will look great on your resume as you will gain leadership skills. If you like children, this job can be very rewarding. You get to be out of your house for some time too!
7. Do online jobs. These include micro jobs such as are on Fiverr, managing your own blog, selling things for other businesses (affiliate marketing), becoming a social media manager, reviewing apps and music for money or posting blog comments for rewards and money.
8. Be a companion for the elderly – Family members will hire people who can provide non-medical care for their aged parents. Elderly people can be very lonely. A teen who comes to check on them, make them dinner or lunch, or take them for a walk can be a very nice part of their day.
9. Sell crafts. If you are creative, you can make things like jewelry, knitted items, and artwork and sell it on sites such as Etsy.
10. Do make-up, hair, or nails for your friends and family. You probably do this already, but why not get paid for it? If you are the one who your friends call to straighten or braid their hair, then either charge them or get something in trade. There are a lot of beauty tip videos on YouTube. Watch them and learn some new skills.
If you examine your skill set, you will find that you have a lot to offer. You just have to market yourself to the public and jobs will start coming to you.
