Where to Find Jobs Locally

Category : Job Search

As a teenager, searching for a job can be difficult. Most job searches will provide results for degree holders, but not for teenagers who are looking to earn some extra cash from an after school or a summer job. Fortunately, there are a few places that you can look to find a good job around your town.

  1. Bulletin Boards: Bulletin boards can be found in a variety of places around town and are ideal for finding information on various things, including job possibilities. You will most likely see bulletin boards in grocery stores, post offices, cafes, and news shops, which means the postings will be very local. People will use these to post things for sale, services offered, classes, lost or missing things or animals, and jobs. A job post should provide a brief description of the job type, responsibilities, and location. There should definitely be contact information so that you can inquire and even apply for the position. Some postings will have tear offs at the bottom of the page with the contact information so you can take it with you.
  2. Community Centers: Community Centers are a great resource for your job search. There are usually a lot of job opportunities there because they have connections with a variety of groups and organizations throughout town. If you like active, hands on, and creative jobs, this is a good place to work as community centers run a lot of sports and games activities, day camps, and various classes such as art.
  3. Newspapers: Although the internet is taking over most things in our life, the newspaper is still used. In the classifieds section of your newspaper you will find job postings for opportunities in your area. You will be provided with contact information so that you can inquire with the employer.
  4. Word of mouth: One of the best ways to find a job is by networking. Let people know you are looking for a local job, whether you prefer babysitting, waiting tables, or an office job. The more people you talk to, the higher the chances are that someone will know of a job opportunity for you. Networking is also beneficial because through your connections you may be able to meet with the employer directly, rather than with their secretary or another employee.

 



With all of these options, you will have a variety of jobs to apply to in order to earn some extra money during the school year or during your summer vacation!
