Jobs for 16 Year Olds

jobs for 16 year oldsIt is always the same. No matter what century we are in, kids always can’t wait to grow up and become adults. They want to learn how to drive, be more independent, be able to drink alcohol, and they can’t wait to graduate high school and be out on their own.

One of the things that comes with being more independent is getting the job. When kids reach the age of 15 or 16, many of them want to get their first jobs so they could earn some extra money that only they have control of. But what kids find when looking for jobs for 16 year olds is that things are not as rosy in the adult world as they thought. If they are lucky enough to get a job, it will probably be something boring and tedious such as working in a fast food restaurant. While this may be new and exciting for a month or two, it will soon turn into a job that they have to drag themselves to everyday.

Many teenagers aren’t even lucky enough to find work. With the economy being so bad for the last 2+ years, many teens have never even been able to get that first job. The last two summers have seen a large percentage of teenagers give up trying to find something. This means they are not getting that entry-level experience and first-hand knowledge of what it is like to work for a boss and be responsible in workplace. They are missing out on valuable experience as well as being able to earn the money they want so that they can go out and socialize with friends.

Jobs for 16 year olds can be a variety of things but as long as there are more teenagers looking than there are jobs available, many will go without. Kids who are entrepreneurial might take this opportunity to see what they can make happen on their own. After all, necessity is the mother of invention and a few kids will thrive on their own by starting their own businesses or working on their own moneymaking ideas. Unfortunately though, 99% of teenagers won’t fall into that category and they will be out looking all the rest hoping to find someone willing to take a chance on them. Hopefully the summer of 2011 will see improvements in job openings for teens over what we have seen the last two summers.
