From experience, I know there are less opportunities for jobs when you are under 18, particularly when you are 16 & under. The reason for this is there are usually legal restrictions employers must follow if they hire a minor. However, you might be able to find something through your high school. High schools often have a career office with resources for finding a job or partner with businesses and organizations in placing students into jobs. You should also ask family and friends if they know of any places that are open to hiring minors.
