Im am totally skint and it is doing my head in and I dont know what type of job to ask in for. Do you know of any suitable jobs for female 14 year olds? And whats the best way to ask in for one? Ive never done it before and Im kind of shy
barbieblissx answered Tuesday May 30 2006, 6:40 pm: the best thing to do is to find a job close by. so u will be able to go their easily. it wont be out your way. since you dont drive and all. find a job that isnt boring cause that might lend you to quit.. and asking for one isnt really what you do. You fill out an application.. just write smartly and neatly and let them know u are going to be devoted to that certain job!

Around here, the only places people 14 can work are the grocery store and the toy store. You can see if there's anything like that open. During the summer, you might be able to find a counselor or CIT (some do pay, some do not) job, but it might be alittle late. Next think about what your talents and hobbies are. For example, one of my good friends takes care of her neighbors horses and she uses the money to pay for lessons. I'm a basketball score keeper durring the on-season and I used to work at my old horseback riding barn. I could work at my new barn but distance and driving is a problem. Anywayz, think of something like that that you could do. [ CavieOwnsU2's advice column | Ask CavieOwnsU2 A Question ]

I just turned 15 and I've got a job at a concession stand in a hockey arena and soon about to apply to Zellers as a cashier(my friends mom can hook me up with that job so I'm not sure how old you have to be otherwise). I got the job at the hockey arena from my friends brother. You can try talking to people and ask if they can tell their boss about you and ask if you can get a job with them. Good luck.

Umm some gorcery stores might hire you but you would be ddoing like bagging at the register. Also some dunkin dounuts(if they have them around you)might hire at 14. But thats really about it.
Mackenzie answered Sunday May 28 2006, 2:41 pm: The best thing I can suggest would be delievering news papers and doing some work at a library or animal hospital - though they may see that as volunteer work and you wouldn't be paid. Or they at least would make you work there a good six weeks before putting your name down on the payroll. Also, you should check with any little local antique stores or Mom & Pop pizza houses, small locally owned stores that aren't a chain. Fast food you couldn't do. I know the youngest they hire would be Wendy's and Subway at 15. And I don't think there would be any way you could weasel a job there, because during the summer every teenager wants a job, so why would they illegally hire a 15 year old when a million 17 year olds have applied, right?
Aside from that, there's babysitting. Try making a bunch of fliers and distributing them on the bullentin boards at your closest couple of grocery stores; free advcertising - that's what it's there for. However, baby sitting is a serious matter. Make sure you know exactly how to perform CPR on infants and toddlers in case of emergency, and once that is all settled, you can add that to your resume. Call them crazy, but parents are more likely to give you their business if they feel their child will be safe with you. You might be able to consider selling things on EBAY. Also, lawn mowing! BIG money to be had there; generally $10.00 - $45.00 per GOOD sized yard. See, there's options. None you might not be too thrilled with, but no one really likes to work...
