Summer is here, with all the fun, love, and inspiration. There is an endless list of things to love about summer. Whether it is the sunshine, the holiday, or the liveliness you feel around you, summer is expected in many aspects.

When the day is longer, the schools are on holiday, you also have more time on your hand to discover new things. The sun and the weather evoke your excitement and make you want to go outside. Suddenly, you feel lively more than ever and want to experiment with as many things as possible.

Job Hunting For Teens & Young Adults

In this three-part series, we start by discussing why it is important to take time to decide what you want to do and the wide variety of positions available. Part two covers some exceptions to limits for working teens. Then, we conclude the series by reviewing job search advice and tips for Pennsylvania Teens.

Part Three: Job Hunting for Teens

Summer jobs are available in Philadelphia and surrounding areas if you are between 12 and 24. Some employers have raised the hourly pay, and some offer sign-on bonuses.

Finding a job is exciting yet overwhelming trying to find the perfect fit for you and your schedule. Thus, we encourage you to ask for help. Speak with teachers, family, coaches, friends, parents of friends—anyone and everyone you can think of—and ask for help. Most jobs are found through referrals, and people you know are often happy to help.
