As summer approaches, children run to their community pools, families go to their vacation hideaways, and beach and amusement parks get the most revenue of the year, but teenagers tend to start looking into the adult world of job hunting.
Right now is the perfect time for teens to find their first job. COVID has caused a rift in our economy that has led to many minimum wage workers getting laid off and having to find different employment, these missing jobs are opening up again which are perfect for teens looking to get some extra cash during the summer.
Looking for jobs isn’t always easy, so I decided as a job hunting teen myself to pull up a few “financial opportunities” that can be found near our high school.
