INTERNSHIPS: The Good, The Paid, And The Unpaid

#teensummerjobs #internships #teenjobs #jobsearch #advice #teens #highschool

Don’t dismiss the idea of high school internships until you’ve got the facts.

First, let’s bust a few myths:
1) Internships aren’t just for recent grads and college students
2) Not all of them are unpaid
3) It’s not just getting coffee, making copies, and being the office errand-runner

Now that we’ve cleared that up, keep in mind that timing is everything. March and…

Should my kid work at McDonald's?!

During my senior year of high school and my freshman year of college, I worked for McDonald's. I did it all. I took orders and worked the cash register and drive-thru (when we actually had to figure out the change ourselves). My oldest teenage son is now at that same moment where he wants a job. So here’s what I think. If your teen wants to work to save up for his own car or something worthwhile and there is an available job at a fast-food…

Lets come up with a list.

I am a proponent for on the job training such as apprenticeships, internships and similar opportunities. Instead of sending young adults off to an expensive college for a degree that may not be in demand when they get out.

Lets start a list of companies and organisations that have this option.

Teens & Taxes: What You Need To Know

#teensummerjobs

It’s a common (and a good!) question, and it’s best to know the answer before tax day–April 15–rolls around.

The short answer
It’s not a question of how old you are, it’s a question of how much you make.

The long answer
If you are a minor (under 18 years old) and your earned income was over $6,350 in 2017, you will need to file a tax return.

In the world of taxes, minors are (under 18 years old), considered “dependents” and…

What are you going to say?

Tell me about yourself. This question makes us cringe a little bit, but every employer will ask you this in some form during an interview. Why? Well because they want to see what YOU bring to their company. You might be wondering (or tempted) to tell your life story and be more personal, but don’t! When an interviewer says, Tell me about yourself, what he or she really wants to know is how your experience applies to the job you're interviewing

I hate when recruiters do that! Because they already have all information they need about you

Do you remember this?

When I was fourteen I remember that teenage longing for my own money. The kind that you didn’t need to borrow from your cousin, or have to ask your parents for. It was just yours because you had earned it. There was no online job seeking when I was an early teen because well, there was no internet, so I went door to door raking my neighbor’s lawns for a small fee. It’s hard to imagine those days now, but they did exist and the world of job

Yes, times I remember alwsys having steady sitting , cleaning ironing, typing or tutoring on side of school and college. What…
