You might want to check out the job posting board at your local grocery store. You might want to contact your neighborhood residents to see if they would like dog sitting, dog walking or baby sitting. Perhaps, you can sell lemonade, if your neighborhood allows it. All these jobs are individual and this is a time you can be creative in how you market yourself. You would be your own boss and be considered an enterpreneaur. (Sorry about the spelling). There is also dog grooming like washing dogs. Anyway, you seem to want to have a job. These are some ideas and I will let you think of others for yourself -- like making jewelry and selling it. Talk with your friends and parents. I'm sure they would like the idea of you wanting to work. Jane Tracy

First thing is first, you'll need a resume and cover letter! If you don't have one, here are some articles to help you out:

STEP TWO: Explore job options
From there, I would suggest exploring jobs that are of interest to you! Do you like working with people? Would you be happier working independently behind a desk? Take a look at our #careerdiscovery topic page - it may help you get the thought process going :)

STEP THREE: Apply to open positions
After you've thought about which roles may be a good fit, it's time to submit an application!

  1. Click on “Jobs” at the top of the page, or head over here
  2. Enter a job into the search field where it says “Job Title or Keywords”
  3. Include your location + click "Search"
  4. When the list populates, click on the ones that sound like a good fit to learn more + apply

Here are few things more things to help get you started and be successful on Jobcase!

1. Fill out your Jobcase profile completely

Employers are looking every day for new talent - make sure you are on their list! :) If you need a little bit of motivation or encouragement, take a peek at Jobcase's #motivation hashtag, it's full of positivity and great tips for landing your next job!

2. Join some groups

Job that pays cash under the table. Lawn care is a big one. Especially if you want full time. No paper trail to worry about. They probably wont even ask your age. Look for anything thats cash under the table. Construction is another one. I started working at 13 doing painting. I always believe in the dont ask dont tell policy. If they dont ask your age then dont tell. Food for thought.
