What are some easy jobs a 17-year-old high school student can land?

I hate to tell you this, but at 17, if you're in a city with at least 10,000 people, almost every job that pays around the minimum wage would be easy to get if you tried legitimately. I'm not talking about sending a sloppy resume; I mean go after them.

First of all, I hope you have the following: decent grades (although amazing grades would help), respectable attire, and a reliable form of transportation to and from all potential jobs. Is that done? Well, read on to the end until the up vote button.

Now, use Google to find all the possible places that could be hiring people with your qualifications.

I hate to tell you this, but at 17, if you're in a city with at least 10,000 people, almost every job that pays around the minimum wage would be easy to get if you tried legitimately. I'm not talking about sending a sloppy resume; I mean go after them.

First of all, I hope you have the following: decent grades (although amazing grades would help), respectable attire, and a reliable form of transportation to and from all potential jobs. Is that done? Well, read on to the end until the up vote button.

Now, use Google to find all the possible places that could be hiring people with your qualifications within the area you want. The first place to look is obviously listed websites, but don't stop there. Use Google maps or walk around town and search for stores that might need your help ... even if they don't know it or yet.

Make a list of all the places. McDonalds, Wendy's, Walmart, Kroger, the little parlor on the corner, the pawn shop, the little mommy and daddy places you've never been to. All places that could accept a minor; Unless you offer something special, you cannot be demanding.

Now make sure your resume is above standards. This is a good list to check if you don't have a lot of experience.

Next, you must dress to impress. If you have a suit and tie, you should wear it, but don't worry if you don't. Matching dress pants, dress shoes, a belt, and a matching polo shirt inside should work.

Something like that would be respectable. For God's sake, don't go in a baggy sweatshirt, basketball shorts, and sneakers (or anything like that).

Okay, now you're ready for the part that most people don't do. Now you need to show that you want that job, that you deserve that job, that it is the best that job could find. Go to the venues in person and show that you can go the extra mile.

Have an interview? Introduce yourself before everyone else, even if you are the last person scheduled.

Let them know that you are willing to start the next morning, or even that day if that works. (Be available to)

Go into places that don't have advertisements to ask for help and politely ask if there is anything you can do. Some places may need help, but they haven't posted any ads yet.

“Hello sir / mom. My name is (), I am 17 years old () in (school). I have been looking for work and would greatly appreciate any possible position at this establishment. * Mention possible achievements that show that you are special. High GPA, athletic achievements, previous work experience, examples of hard work. Anything that shows you are hardworking, smart, and eager * I'd be willing to start anytime, even right now, if you wish. I feel like I could do a lot for the company, even things that you may not have realized yet. I will work harder than anyone who has employed here, I am smart, creative and I will make clients leave smiling and eager to come back again and again. I know this can be unexpected but I want to show you that hiring me would be a decision you will never regret. All I'm asking for is an opportunity; I'll even work a few days for free, and if you're not more than satisfied, I'll go. Here is my resume. I'd love to get started as soon as possible, but if you would like to have time to think about it, I fully understand and would be more than willing to speak in any way that suits you at any time. "

I suggest you cold-call and email places too, but at 17, face-to-face would benefit you so much more because you would stand out.

If you keep doing that in dozens of places, unless you have a horrible track record on something, I'd almost guarantee you a deal somewhere. Be courteous, eager, and willing to do anything or accept almost any offer.

Some more tips:

You can't be afraid of hard work to make this work. Be prepared for backbreaking and exhausting work if you have to.

Be polite. Sir, Mom, thank you, you're welcome, doing everything possible to help everyone present. Don't get sarcastic or sarcastic either; Be positive and energetic within reason at all times.

Have good grades, sports achievements, experience working hard. Anything to prove yourself before you get a chance on the field.

Early is punctual. The time is late.

If you are trying to get a house job like shoveling snow, use the speech but replace some parts. Be very insistent on being willing to work for free at first to prove yourself and start small.

Good luck! Work harder than you've ever worked before and feel free to start by clicking the upvote button and move on to see more content that will hopefully help people, especially if this answer helped you.

Getting a job is difficult. While they may not have responded, don't forget about them. They may offer one to you in a few months.

If you're like me and don't mind hard work, go to a local farm and ask if they need a laborer. Easy work and good pay. You also have a lot of fun.

If you don't want to work outdoors or don't live near a farm, apply to be a camp counselor or lifeguard somewhere, apply for more jobs, but find something for the summer at least.

Remember, no job is under you, everyone starts somewhere. Apply everywhere you can and look for all the necessary Help signs you can find. Local business

Remember, no job is under you, everyone starts somewhere. Apply everywhere you can and look for all the necessary Help signs you can find. Local businesses are always very successful.

I think the easiest jobs are the "service-oriented" jobs that require no prior training or education. If you have not received a response, I would not be discouraged and would look further away from your home. I recommend public transportation or biking (if safe) to gauge how far from home you are willing to travel.

Another avenue is sales. A well-presented applicant may interest a small business to hire on the spot.

Lastly, have a "cheery and cheerful" disposition with your best smile and you've outdone most of the other applicants.

Best of luck.

My job in high school consisted of working at a Dunkin Donuts, a mall kiosk, an administrative assistant, and washing dishes in a nursing home; As you mentioned, coffee shops, office jobs, and retail are common. Other potential jobs may include entrepreneurial ventures (marketing or managing a service) or tutoring on a subject in which you excel.

If income is your main goal and you're struggling, even check out the "gigs" section on Craigslist. There are many research studies, data entry, and local marketing opportunities that can earn you quick money, regardless of your age. Good luck!

Ah, being 15 years old for me was an uncomfortable age because only 3 years later you finished high school, you are trying to find yourself, parents want more from you, aaaahhhh ... I remember that age very well. Well let me tell you one thing, if you have no idea what you want to do with your life, don't worry about it. Most of the people in the world also have no idea what they want to do with their life. And those who do, do it really bad. LOL. Believe it or not, people go to college and get a degree in something they can't stand after graduating. Is it by family or is it what

Ah, being 15 years old for me was an uncomfortable age because only 3 years later you finished high school, you are trying to find yourself, parents want more from you, aaaahhhh ... I remember that age very well. Well let me tell you one thing, if you have no idea what you want to do with your life, don't worry about it. Most of the people in the world also have no idea what they want to do with their life. And those who do, do it really bad. LOL. Believe it or not, people go to college and get a degree in something they can't stand after graduating. Is it because of their family or is it what they think was a good career choice for them. It is a career choice that they believe will earn them money as well. Don't chase money. It's not what you should do. The money will come if you find what you love to do. But don't worry about the money right now, your 15. You're supposed to be bankrupt unless you decide to get a job and have your own money, which indicates that you are motivated to work and not afraid of it, which is always you. will bring money. So let's go back to not knowing what you want to do with your life. First tip:

Just enjoy being 15 years old. Go out with friends because one day they will leave. Not because they died, silly if you thought that way. It's because they moved or went to college. Most of the relationships you have in high school will end there. It's sad but true. So go out and stay with your friends and enjoy the time with them. Get a job if you want so you don't have to go see Mom and Dad or who's raising you and say, "Can I have some money?" It's good to say, "No, Mom, I don't need money, I have mine." You will see how proud they will be of you. They may not show it, but trust me, it's within them. Second:

Do your studies. Take school seriously. Get good grades. I know I'm starting to look like a father. I am. But it's true. Who would you want on your team at NASA? The person who was student C or student A. Just looks at life that way. Look up one night in the sky and gaze at the stars. You are one of them. It is up to you how much you want to shine. Some stars shine, others not so bright. But they are still stars in the sky. It all depends on how bright you want to shine. You are your own creator of your destiny. You create your world. The beauty of this, even when you create one shitty world, the sun rises the next day and you can create another. Never let your light go out, even if people try to turn it off. And trust me, you will find those people. Just smile at them, laugh a little and walk away.

Never give up. It's that simple, especially if you really believe in something. Look at all those movies of people who moved on when the odds were against them. I will tell you a little secret of life. When things get easy, we as human beings don't appreciate it that much. But when we work for it or we have to do things to get it and it takes time to get what we want. We appreciate it more. Be a child again. Eat your whole dinner and you'll get ice cream for dessert. He hated peas. But I love vanilla ice cream with hershey syrup. It's that easy. It gets a bit more complicated because you may have to eat a lot of peas before you get the ice cream. But don't give up. Yeah life will get hard, yeah life will suck sometimes and yeah you will feel like you're not going anywhere. But that's the beauty of it. That is when the universe God or some other force sees that you are working so hard for what you believe in. That's when all that hard work pays off. It has happened to you in the past, you just forgot. But think about it. I bet you will remember some of the things you worked on and got there. I can go on, but now you get the idea. One day you will be old, yes, it's scary but it's true. I remember I was 15 years old like you, I played soccer and went out with my friends. Now I'm going to buy my third home, move in with my fiancé and kids, and start a new life at 50. I created this world and I love it. The money continues because I like and love what I do. I have a side hustle that is my love. My I like it is my job. But think about it. I bet you will remember some of the things you worked on and got there. I can go on, but now you get the idea. One day you will be old, yes, it's scary but it's true. I remember I was 15 years old like you, I played soccer and went out with my friends. Now I'm going to buy my third home, move in with my fiancé and kids, and start a new life at 50. I created this world and I love it. The money continues because I like and love what I do.

Now I'm going to buy my third house move in with my fiancé and kids and start a new life at 50. I created this world and I love it. The money continues because I like and love what I do. I have a side hustle that is my love. My I like it is my job. The money continues because I like and love what I do. I have a side hustle that is my love. My I like it is my job. The money continues because I like and love what I do. I have a side hustle that is my love. My I like it is my job.

So go now and look at life like a shining 15-year-old star. You are so young and only you will let the light shine as much as you want. Life awaits you and don't worry you will find what you want to do. Ask the universe: "Universe, can you give me a hint of what I can do with my life?" then forget it. Don't push yourself so hard. You'll find it. Trust me. Or it will be presented to you one day. Good luck. Enjoy and God Speed.

Okay, as someone who was in this situation and is, don't listen to all the negatives. Focus on your relationship and pay attention to all the little things. If there are red flags, drop it. I am almost 18 years old, I got laid with my current boyfriend two months after I turned 16, there was no malicious intention in my boyfriend's mind about going with me. We both literally fell in love, dated every day for a month and a half, became best friends, and we both had feelings for each other that we finally expressed. I guess now it's a dead thread, but for those reading this because

Okay, as someone who was in this situation and is, don't listen to all the negatives. Focus on your relationship and pay attention to all the little things. If there are red flags, drop it. I am almost 18 years old, I got laid with my current boyfriend two months after I turned 16, there was no malicious intention in my boyfriend's mind about going with me. We both literally fell in love, dated every day for a month and a half, became best friends, and we both had feelings for each other that we finally expressed. I imagine this is a dead thread now, but for those reading this because they needed reassurance, 2 years is not a bad age gap, I would know it considering there is a 23 year age gap between my stepmom and my dad, most married couples have an age difference. Age difference of 2-4 years, now if you are 13-15 or younger reading this, If you are dating someone who is 18 or older, you are a victim of grooming, there is a maturity gap between you and that person. Get help right away and let them. Anyway, if you plan to have sex with your partner, look at the consent laws of your state or the laws of Romeo and Juliet, where I live, the age of legal consent is 16. So even if I had decided to have sex with my partner. I was not putting him in danger of criminal charges. DO NOT submit nudes and I absolutely mean DO NOT submit nudes until you are 18 because even if you are of the age of consent, Nudity by a person under the age of 18 is still considered child pornography. Regardless, if you feel that you are at the same level of maturity as your s / o and you are comfortable with them, let your relationship flourish. I'll say this if you're 16 and over 18 (unless they turn 19 a few months before 17), then your maturity level almost definitely doesn't match theirs and you're being exploited. My current relationship is that high school boyfriends have turned out well. I was a junior when I arrived with him and I already graduated, in fact, 3 months before. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable when people act bad because of the 2-year age difference, but not because of my relationship, because of what people say. If you feel like you are 100% ready and mature enough and feel comfortable and have a strong level of commitment to each other, then really no problem. Also for the absolute BOOMER who has been listed as a lawyer, his children must visit him a lot at that time. I would hate to have had you as my dad and my dad literally beat me up when I was living with him. Obviously, you are not a lawyer if you do not know that states have different laws of legal consent, and also it is not illegal to date an 18 year old in any state, it is illegal if you do something that is considered sexual if you are not the legal one. Age of consent. It's 3 in the morning anyway and I have work tomorrow, so peace.

I was your typical nerd, you can tell. My day started with private classes, followed by school and then JEE training classes. He used to leave home at 6.30 in the morning and return at 9.30 at night. I didn't brag, but I was decent with studies, getting top marks in Math, Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science. I wasn't that good with English and Bengali, but I still managed to rank first in my class during high school.

Honestly, it wasn't very boring. I used to sleep one day a week, the day there were no practical classes. I played hand cricket in the middle

I was your typical nerd, you can tell. My day started with private classes, followed by school and then JEE training classes. He used to leave home at 6.30 in the morning and return at 9.30 at night. I didn't brag, but I was decent with studies, getting top marks in Math, Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science. I wasn't that good with English and Bengali, but I still managed to rank first in my class during high school.

Honestly, it wasn't very boring. I used to sleep one day a week, the day there were no practical classes. I played cricket between classes when the teacher was teaching. However, I didn't smoke or hang out in pubs, which was the definition of "cool" among my peers, so that probably made me "not that popular" in my circle of friends, but I didn't care. Because everyone came back to see me for homework and notes.

I was the one who provided all the lab reports and assignments for my class. The only reason I came to Whatsapp in 2013 was to distribute my notes and lab readings, lab reports, Java programs, etc. among my friends. So my 'so-called friends' couldn't completely interrupt me either!

But I was a favorite among my teachers. During parent-teacher meetings, everyone sang praises about me. Who would say a bad thing about the first kid in the class who never resorted to any mischief anyway! I remember once my mother got bored of hearing my thanks, so she complained that I didn't eat vegetables at home with my classroom teacher in the hope that she would scold me. However, that didn't work out for her, thankfully!

I participated in impromptu debates during high school, trying to fight my stage fright. I had represented my school in many trivia contests and had also won quite a few prizes! In class 11, I participated in the International Mathematical Olympiad and ranked 24th in the country. So, in addition to studies, I tried to improve my co-curricular skills as well.

I quite enjoyed it, but made sure my studies were on track. I never racked up tuition, I studied all year long, not only for tables, but also for my JEE. And you would hardly see me without a book at any time. I always carried a storybook with me because I was an avid reader of them. As you can see, even while walking on the roads, he had a book in hand.

After school ended, I received this keepsake and two storybooks as a gift for the results of the ISC meeting.

It's nostalgic to think about those wasted days. I just met my friends from school last night and we were reminiscing about those days, those lunch breaks, playing ball on the playground, and giving the teachers funny nicknames. It was fun and life was so simple back then! Those were the best days of my life!

I got my first payment when I was 19, so I think I am qualified to answer this. During my college days, I would work during vacations after the semester. One of my friends introduced me to the world of event management through a labor agency. He told me there was an event and that we could earn some money, which would help us party during the semester. I agreed and the event was to host a game show in a five-star hotel, after an initial screening test, we were both selected along with other people, we later found out that we would host the selection round of a popular game show called "minute to

I agreed and the event was to host a game show in a five-star hotel, after an initial screening test, we were both selected along with other people, we later found out that we would host the selection round of a popular game show called "minute to win it" from the AXN channel and we had to organize a booth with one game each, we were delighted as AXN was a reputable channel, for the whole day of organizing the event they paid us 350 rupees each after almost two weeks, although not a large amount in 2010, it was something for a university student, I bought a pair of iBall headphones for 250 rupees. Coming from an academically oriented family background, we both didn't get enough pocket money to have all sorts of fun things that we fancied back then, pocket money was enough for a movie once a week, followed by a plate of Indianized Chinese dish, like mix of Manchurian gobi and fried rice, but we wanted more. it was something for a college student, I bought a pair of iBall headphones for 250 rupees.

We got acquainted with the human resources agent and he would call us every time there was an important event, my friend and I had a strict no event during the semester policy, but we could not resist this event during the semester, being part of Metallica. event that happened in Bangalore around November 2011, all we had to do was distribute badges of some musical foundation in addition to distributing Force India rubber bands, we distributed few and took most of that merchandise home, they also paid us to enjoy Metallica concert. They paid us 750 rupees each, which was quite large for a half-day job. We made new contacts that helped us land a weekly phone calling job for the next vacation.

During January 2012, there was a broadband company that launched the 10 Mbps speed network and from the contacts we made during the Metallica event we got a weekly phone call job, this was the first time we got the office job actually, our job was to answer questions about the connection and the procedure involved and redirect the technical team. We made 3,500 rupees each, which was huge. I spent it on comics and I have no idea where those comics are right now.

During December 2011, I even did the job of endorsing one company beer and preventing bar / wine shop customers from buying any other brand of beer by offering gifts for 4 quarts of company beer that we were going to endorse. He was paid 250 rupees, however, he did not feel good about that job and therefore turned down the liquor-based event in the future.

After the phone call job, we got one more phone call job on the next vacation and again I made 4200 rupees each, which financed my hobby of reading books.

We organized a Bisleri mineral water event at Forum Mall, Koramangala for two days in January 2012, we won 900 rupees each.

I hosted the Nokia Lumia 1020 event at Mount Carmel University in January 2014, I won around 900 rupees, this time with another friend. This event was fun as we were both mechanical engineering students and the event was held at one of the most popular girls' universities in Bangalore.

Sometime in April 2014 me and the guy from the Mount Carmel event organized the Bangalore FC road show which was the best and last event I did, I met the BFC players and took pictures with them. I made around 1200 rupees from that event.

These are the various ways I have earned myself during my college days, even though I didn't have to. But the extra money is always welcome, from these experiences I have learned to honor each job. My regret is that I should have saved or invested in some small business in those days.

Lower your head, work hard, listen, learn from your mistakes, and be proud.

At your age, regardless of the industry, you will be at the bottom of the totem pole.

It will be your duty to dig the hole, wash the dishes, touch the cash register, file the paper, sweep the floors, etc. He is also responsible for the heavy lifting.

It won't be glamorous.

You will come out with sweat on your forehead and stains on your clothes.

You will do the simplest and boring tasks that will get really boring quickly.

You will not tell anyone what to do and everyone will tell you what to do.

You will not tell anyone what to do and everyone will tell you what to do.

As everyone heads to Nick's house after school, you'll be heading to stand in a parking lot for 4 hours (I got really good at stunning).

While everyone is hanging out on the beach on Saturday, you will move a huge pallet of bricks

... brick by brick ...

from one area to another 5 feet away (it would have been a lot cooler if they had a forklift)

It will be exhausting ...

It will be exhausting ...

… And on top of it all, when you get your first paycheck, you'll quickly learn why taxes suck.

But this is the thing

As long as you keep your head down, whatever your boss tells you to do, be on time, and work hard throughout the day, it will get easier in time.

Soon you will be able to do those simple, numbing tasks with your eyes closed.

Soon a new growl will be hired and you will tell him what to do.

While your friends beg their parents for that new game or a new bag, you will be playing and showing off.

While your friends ask their parents to drop them off at the practice, you'll be two shifts away from owning your own car.

You will make mistakes, but you will learn from them

You will quickly learn what not to do and what to do.

You will learn to take orders and give orders.

You will learn to manage not only your time, but that of others ...

… And most importantly, you will learn the true value of money. Until then, the money you had was given to you. It comes from that magic money tree, also known as your parents' wallet. Now you know how hard it was for your parents to get that money.

Finally, all that hard work should give you a sense of pride. When you see that nasty bathroom become spotless, you will have a feeling of pride.

Your parents should be very proud of you.

but if they are not

I'M PROUD OF YOU.

I don't know you and probably never will, but anyone who has the initiative to work hard and make their own money at your age earns respect in my books.

You are already a leader of the competition and you are destined to do great things in life.

Go get it.

Better,

Find out as much as you can about the company and the person you are interviewing with. Read the company's and competitor's website, find the manager on LinkedIn and Facebook. Think of some ideas that the company can outperform the competition. Mention these in an interview (most other applicants won't).

Come up with ideas that can improve sales and profits. What skills, knowledge or assets can you contribute to the success of the company? Use / try / visit the company's products. Have a mature opinion of what they do / produce / provide and offer a fair analysis for and against what they do.

Show how smart you are and your willingness to work hard for success. Shake his hand confidently and look him in the eye when you speak. Smile a lot. Lean forward, smile, and nod when you speak. Ask smart questions about how you can help your business. Close the meeting with a firm handshake and tell them that you will work very hard to achieve success. If you do these things, you will have a 50% higher chance of getting hired compared to applicants who don't.

Good luck!

  • Cleaning duties
  • Fast food (McDonalds, Wendy's ... etc.)
  • Supermarkets
  • TRADER JOE'S (I worked here as a teenager, they have a great starting salary, competitive benefits, and it's super fun! You never get bored. You can do everything from cleaning, registration, flooring, to customer experience)
  • Ask a parent if they know of any internships.
  • Do scientific research (not immediate money, but very beneficial in the long run)
  • Retail sale
  • Train yourself in stock and finance
  • Volunteer firefighter / paramedic
  • Work at a local animal shelter.
  • Camp counselor
  • Work in a call center
  • Secretary

The options are endless, it all depends on what you want. Internships and retail jobs cost ten cents a dozen. My suggestion is to focus on a job that can give you experience, especially in the interest of college and future jobs. Unfortunately, you will have to start small because this is your first job, so you want to find a place that will reinforce new skills, whether there is a large amount of pay or not.

Good luck!

Hard work for a first time job is always good to teach a child that money is not always easy and also respect money and a little hard work is good for them, a farm is always good because they learn that meat pork or milk doesn't just come from a store! ... my uncle was once a hard-working bricklayer and now he's retired for almost 20 years ... at 12 I was his assistant ... that was 30 years ago and now I'm following in his footsteps ... I own from my own business and have worked in the concrete / masonry business ever since
