With summer starting and school out, teens may be looking for a job to keep them busy and to help them pay for a few things of their own. There are plenty of ways for teenagers to make money, and many summer jobs can be flexible with summer and evening hours. The key to finding a flexible summer job is to start searching early and to leverage connections you may have through your parents, community groups, churches, and schools.
Working at a Restaurant
If you still want to enjoy your summer days by the pool, you can try to find a job in the evening at a restaurant. Most afternoon shifts start around 3:00 and can last until 11:00 or 12:00, but it gives you the flexibility to enjoy your days off while the sun is shining!
The pay may be close to minimum wage but your chances of making more money will improve if you’re a waiter or waitress. Just be sure not so spend your hard earned money at the restaurant for dinner!
