Winter Jobs for Teens
a great time to find winter jobs for teens. The holiday aisles are
buzzing - and teens need money for the holidays. And employers need
help. What a great match!
Traditional seasonal jobs
There are traditional seasonal winter jobs for teens that can be
easy to find. And they might fit well into a teen holiday schedule
due to school breaks and the extra needs of employers.
First, look at the retailers in your area. These can be the big-box
stores in malls or the local gift shop. All are going to be having
more customers and possibly longer hours. While there are limits on
the hours that some teens can work, nearly all retailers need extra
staff for the increased demands.
Next, scope out the restaurants. People who go out shopping do not
want to go home to grab a bite. They want to get something while
they are out. Add that to the increase in celebrations in the
evenings, and you've got restaurants that need more help.
Finally, parents are looking for extra help with the kids. Between
the shopping demands and the party season, parents are in need of
more babysitting than normal. And babysitters are in high demand.
Offer daytime sitting on the weekends to allow for parents to shop
or nighttime sitting for those holiday parties (even if it's in the
same home as the party!).
Other ideas for winter jobs for teens
you cannot find or are not interested in the traditional winter jobs
for teens, consider other seasonal jobs that might be available in
your area. These might last longer than the traditional jobs
because they are not based just on the holidays.
These include indoor sports areas, such as rock-climbing or ice
skating areas, or the local gym which is sure to see an increase in
attendance for New Year's resolutions. Also consider outdoor sports
options such as outdoor ice skating rinks or local ski slopes.
Whatever path you choose in your search, remember that winter jobs
for teens are all around. It's just a matter of finding that great
job for YOU!
