Hope this helped. x
A lot of you seem to be having some trouble...
I know a majority of 13 and 14 year olds are not trusted by adults...they believe we are irresponsible.
However, you should try and prove that you are responsible and have a high maturity level. Your parents must trust you, no? Have them assist you in making a flyer advertising services that you are able to perform. Include your phone number. Cut the bottom of the page into strips with your phone number on it so they can be plucked off the page, and the people will take it with them.
I made a flyer and posted it in public places (I.e. grocery store, train station, the town hall, stick it in mailboxes...etc.) within my town last year.
I said I could perform yard work and help with watering as well as taking in mail. Even though I didn't say I would do take care of animals, I received a call from a family who was going away for 2 weeks, and needed someone to feed their cat. Advertisments work out perfectly here! They gave me 7 dollars a visit (I was going to charge 5 dollars) and after the two weeks, I made about $130.
I felt great- flyers really help you out. I just posted another one recently- I hope I get some calls!
But just a note...
. Plan your time carefully. Try not to be booked when opportunity come knocking at your front door! (Or calling your home.)
. Offer jobs that you CAN do. I have no experience with dogs! Never owned one, not ever. And they require walking twice a day- something I have no time for, as with other animals, who only require you to feed them once per day.
. Many adults prefer high school students to do professional yard work- only water plants indoor and outdoor and if you can, weed the lawn.
. If someone calls you, do not answer immeadiately. Contact your parent(s) and tell him/her/them that you got a call. Return the call for the person in need of your service after consulting your parents first.
. Be mature: sound as adult as you can, do not use slang or rude words, (never say 'stupid' because employers don't like that)be outgoing and friendly.
Also, if they ask you to take care of an animal you have no experience with, tell them that you've never taken care of that certain animal. They may show you the basics, as it is an animal really.
NOTE: Never say you have never taken care of children. That worries parents. (this is only if your advertising a babysitting service)
Good luck 13 and 14-year olds with your future jobs.
We're kind of...well...banned from doing really tough jobs meant for slightly older kids. When you look at a lot of thirteen year olds, most won't get off their lazy butts and work for even 4 minutes. Anyway, people, really listen to what I'm going to say:
It's not hard at all, especially because kids are simple. Tune in to what they like, always say you like what they like, and parents are willing to pay a good amount of money for some responsible teenager to take care of their little darling.
Just watched out for temper tantrums...they stink. But if a kid throws a fit, just like a naughty puppy, ignore them. That's all it takes. If kids start having a little tussle on the floor, break it up without yelling. Tell them they're being ridiculous, and say it's not cool. If it's not cool to an older woman, then it's cool to them. If it's not cool to a teenager, then it's definitely NOT COOL.
Little girls idolize older girl and vice versa. I had to say I liked rap to keep communication with some kids, but heck, I got paid and got called back 7 times. Made over 300 dollars now.
Hope this is helpful.
13 year olds in the U.K need to get a work permit before they get a job (school can probably provide one) 13 year olds can work in fast food restaurants or normal restaurants but are not allowed 2 work in kitchen you can when your 14 tho your not supossed to work in offices you can do random jobs tho like babysitting, washing cars, paper rounds e.t.c. your only allowed 2 work from 7am-7-pm on schooldays (including sunday) you can only work 4 2 hours school can take permit off you if your not doing well enough at school well thats what happens at my school I am 13 2 but family has a buisness so I just help out there randomly 2 earn more money go 2 a place where you get tips as well as normal wages your not allowed 2 work anywhere where you cud injure urself at 13 its well unfair because hardly any people trust 13 year olds with jobs when we're just as gud as older people probably better because we've got more energy so can do jobs faster I carnt wait till im 16 and an earn sum gud money as much as I want!!! its going to b gr8!!!
You'll have to ck the laws in your area - may require a permit..some ideas:
Paint House number on street curb
City, County, State and other government-run Youth Programs
Vacation and Tourism spots
Parks and recreational areas
Swimming pools, golf courses and campground facilities
Day and summer camps
Museums, Zoos and Aquariums
Airport concession firms
Childcare and Eldercare providers
Health care facilities
Business services (including)
Moving and packing companies
Pool and spa companies
Lawn care and other maintenance companies
Fast food and restaurant establishments
Ice cream parlors, juice bars
Clothing and accessory stores
Newspaper / Magazine Distribution
Wish you the best !!
kids that can do artwork and crafts can sell on etsy it is a online store your parents will have to agree to and help you get set up but if they see you can make your own spending money they should be willing to help you get started. again it is etsy dot com once you are there just look for something you can do and then make a few and post them it is fun and easy. Check out the ACEO page search for playing card art have fun with a deck of cards you can make 52 and sell them for a 1.00 each you can make 52.00 on a .50 pack from the dollar mart! I use aceo cards as book marks and gift tags. Christmas is coming and gift tags are a must for Christmas
if you can draw or paint you can really be creative on a 3x5 card cut in half too, which is cheaper then the deck of cards.
nothing works anymore. the paper routes people dont call back or anything, the stores dont want you to work for them because of laws or thinking that kids are "unreliable". this is starting to get to me. I cant do anything, this is very annoying. people dont know what some kids are capable of doing. maybe if one store employs you, you do well and that word spreads out towards other stores and we may actually do well in life. try saying"if I start now, ill be even better when I am of age to get a part time job of sorts". that may help out in what ever you are trying to get for a job. try now and say that if you start ow in the future ill be better at my role in this company and be the head of whatever your working as...
