Get a job: 5 places teens can look for summer work

PHILADELPHIA, PA. ó Due to their lack of experience, teens often encounter challenges while searching for summer jobs. With the school year about to end, many are finding that it’s too late to apply for some summer positions.
To help their peers, the teenage job experts at MyFirstPaycheck.com put together a list of five places where teens should look for the perfect summer job.
1. Golf courses. Golf courses are everywhere and have a huge need for seasonal employment. Caddying, landscaping and working in the gift shop or restaurant are some opportunities available to teens.
2. Offices. Whether it’s helping to answer phones, filing or doing paperwork, there is always a lot going on in an office for a smart and responsible teen. Working in an office also provides teens with the chance to learn about being in a professional workplace.
3. Museums and other cultural institutions. Summer is the time for big shows and large crowds. Museums are always looking for energetic, enthusiastic and affordable help. Teens provide the perfect fit for these unique opportunities.
4. Restaurants. Because of high turnover, the restaurant industry is always hiring. Working in a restaurant setting provides teens with a skill set that can be transferable to other jobs as well as provide valuable life lessons.
5. Volunteer. Although volunteering does not provide a salary, it offers a great way to make an impact on the community. Volunteering enables teenagers to develop skills, network, and strengthen their resumes so they can have a more fulfilling job search the next summer.
“Learning how to apply for jobs is not something teens always learn in school, but it is an important skill to have. As a teen applying for a first job, it is especially important to make a good impression and MyFirst Paycheck.com can help,” says Austin Lavin, co-founder of MyFirstPaycheck. com.
