Get an After School Job
OK so you need some cash but you can't get any. Maybe an after school job will help? Follow these simple tips to get a great job after school.
- Get permission from your parents and agree on a schedule and transportation plan.
- Make a list of the types of jobs that you can do and where you can look. If you are a younger teen, who is limited in what work you can do by labor laws, consider starting your own business. You can babysit, walk dogs, or cut lawns.
- Network with neighbors, business owners, school staff, church members, and local job service counselors.
- Market yourself by creating a resume and distributing flyers.
- Apply for the jobs you’ve identified on your list. Dress neatly and be courteous. The more people you talk to, the better you’ll get – and the more comfortable you’ll be talking to adults.
- Send thank-you notes to the people who interviewed you. You never know when the impression you make may reap unexpected rewards.
- Baby sitting in the evening for neighbors can be a good way to earn a little money.
- Jump at any opportunity

- You could get very tired after a long school day
