How to land a job as a teen

  1. Brainstorm and research job options - don't limit yourself to "teen" jobs like fast food.
  2. Gain experience (and a reference) - small jobs & volunteering pay off, big time. 
  3. Be able to name your skills - you've got marketable skills (we promise).
  4. Get your documents together to apply - your application will be a breeze.
  5. Know how to ace your interview - interviews are the final exam (not a pop quiz).
