Summer 2006 – Start Smart: Money Management for Teens

Getting a Job: A Way to Earn and Learn at the Same Time

Thinking about getting a job to earn a little extra money? Ask your parents first. If the answer is "yes," it's usually best to start with odd jobs for friends and neighbors. Think about your talents. Are you good at playing the piano or solving math problems? Maybe you can be a tutor. If you love animals, maybe you can get paid to walk dogs or pet sit. If you prefer to be outdoors, consider mowing lawns or washing cars.

Eventually your parents may agree it's time you took a "real" job in the summer or after school, which can be a great way to learn about the working world and handle new responsibilities.
