Victoria’s Answer

Hi Nisha. What kind of job are you currently working ? What are your academic and career goals? This will help determine what options you have. In order to make a wise choice, we’d need to look at where you are with school now and what your future plans are.

Victoria recommends the following next steps:

Make an appointment with school counselor
Talk to current supervisor about work schedule
Consider plans after graduating high school
Will getting a second job take away from your time to do school work?

José Javier’s Answer

Nisha, I think Ms. Davis's advice is very thorough and will definitely help you with your goal of earning more money. I think that when you are speaking to your school counselor and other trusted adults, you should ask them if they know of any job fairs for teenagers that your city organizes. Often times cities organize these with local/national businesses, park districts, etc. participating. However with the current Coronavirus pandemic, many things have been put on hold.

You can also consider working online since those jobs don't require in person interaction. Here's an interesting link I found: https://www.dreamhomebasedwork.com/online-jobs-for-teens/

Hope this helps and best of luck with your search!

Alex’s Answer

I would recommend a job in the restaurant industry. The nicer the restaurant, the more money you will make. You will probably started as a busser, then move up the ranks, to food runner, then server. Servers can do really well for themselves. I worked as a busser/ food runner for a couple summers and did a lot better than expected. It also serves as a good environment to meet people.
