What Kinds of Work Can Teens Do?

Depending on their age, teens can work almost anywhere adults can. To find out what types of jobs teens are permitted to have - and what hours teenagers are allowed to work - read our Legal Info about Teen Jobs.

When you're a teen looking for a job, it can sometimes feel like you're limited to fast food and coffee shops. And while it's true that the most common jobs tend to be in restaurants, movie theatres and other customer service work, there are plenty of other interesting work options out there for young people who are creative and persistent.

Do you want a job, but don't know where to look? Here are a few examples of teen jobs:

  • Do you love animals? Consider applying to pet stores, veterinary clinics, animal rescue centers and zoos.

  • Enjoy being outdoors? Consider starting a neighborhood lawn mowing, dog walking or house painting business.

  • Are you a great student? Consider tutoring! You can be an independent tutor or apply to a tutoring company.

  • Do you love kids? You can be a part-time babysitter during the school year, or a full-time nanny over summer breaks. Or apply to work at afterschool centers, daycares or summer camps.

  • Would you love a career in fashion? How about marketing? Sports reporting? If you know what career you want, now is a great time to get experience. Apply for entry-level jobs or internships.
