Tony, mentor for Teens Online
It's here at last. You know what I'm talking about: Summer. No more classes. No more homework. No more dragging yourself sleepily to first period English. (Seriously, whose idea was it to start school so early in the morning?) Now you can fill your days however you want. You can go to the mall or Valleyfair or a Twins game. There's just one problem. Things cost money... which is a huge drag. Even the things which seem free--like the beach--can have hidden costs. Sunscreen and snacks aren't free, after all. A summer job might be just what you need to turn your extra time into extra money.
Whether you've had a job before or you're looking for your first job, our Jobs & Money subject guide can help you find work. Find the best job search engines. Connect with local organizations like AchieveMpls that offer teens summer jobs, or check out the Self Employment guide to be your own boss. And if you want additional help landing the perfect summer job, come to Jumpstart Your Summer Job Search on June 15 at the St. Louis Park Library.
A summer job can help you build valuable skills, explore career options, and make connections in the community. Plus it will keep money in your sunscreen budget all summer long.
