Chalk Talk: Jobs for High School Students
The majority of jobs available to high school students are positions such as cashiers, servers, fast food restaurant workers, and lifeguards. No jobs are a bad choice for teens, as they teach them responsibility and help them gain independence; however, students can dig a little deeper if they would like a job outside this realm. One great idea is for students to seek jobs that align with a career they are interested in pursuing; there may be internships available for high school students. Paid internships are not always available, so teens and their parents will have to decide if they would like to gain valuable experience through unpaid internships and set the financial aspect aside. Those who would like to work with children, for example, may pursue jobs such as tutors, library workers, camp counselors, and coaches of young children’s sports teams.
