Summer is quickly approaching, and you know what that means, Huskies: time to do fun activities with your friends! While there are many free activities to do such as going to the beach or the park, a majority of summer activities such as going to amusement parks or out to eat involve spending a decent amount of money. Since many of us high school students often find ourselves lacking money at this time of year, teens 16 and up begin searching for a job. There are a variety of businesses out there that frequently hires teenagers. If you are good with talking with customers and selling products, you should consider working in retail. Clothing stores such as Forever 21, Old Navy, and Hollister are often looking for teenagers to fold clothes and work the register. If you are interested in possibly getting free food as a job perk, fast food places such as McDonalds and Chick-Fil-A are often hiring teenagers to work the register and drive thru window. Recently, I found myself in need of money for college, so I got a job at a local pet groomer. Although I have only been working there for a month, this job has already taught me so much. Since much of the job involves being aware of where the dogs are at all times, I have learned how important it is to be responsible and constantly conscious of my surroundings. Furthermore, I’ve realized that practice makes perfect and to not give up when you can’t get it right the first time. If you are considering getting a summer job, I definitely suggest doing it!
