Trying to find half decent jobs for 13 year olds these days is next to impossible considering that they are just not old enough to work at chain stores and in general workplaces. What are their options these days when it comes to finding quality employment. They can do the more traditional baby sitting or paper delivery jobs but this type of work takes up a lot of their social time and pay's very little for the inconvenience of it all.
So what can they do about it, well the solution to this problem is closer than you may think thanks to modern technology. Times are changing and the days of searching for jobs the traditional way are fast becoming yesterday's ways. The internet is slowly filling the void when it comes to the current teen job market. When looking for jobs for 13 year olds it is now entirely possible for them to apply, get hired and start earning with their dream job in just one day regardless of their skill or location.
When teens choose to find work online they do not have to go through a lengthy, jump through the hoop type interview then wait weeks to find out if their application was accepted or not. So when compared to applying for and obtaining a normal advertised job it should come as no surprise at all that these paid online jobs are fast becoming the new number one jobs for 13 year olds everywhere.
These paid online jobs out perform your more traditional type jobs every time. The most popular online job for this group at the moment is taking online surveys. They simply get paid for their opinion by filling out short anonymous surveys on things like movies, magazines, t.v and hundreds of other products and topics. The best part is that they are the greatest jobs when it comes to fitting into their busy little social schedule. Apart from the fact that most teens that are doing these surveys are earning at least $20 to $40 per hour there are no pre determined times that they must work, no travel expenses for getting them to and from work and they can work as often or as little as they like. Just try finding a job like this anywhere else.
Taking a survey is an extremely simple thing to do as it is basically just clicking check boxes or filling in information where required. On completion of the survey the money is transferred to their account and they move on to the next survey. But it's not all roses as choosing the right survey companies to work for is the hardest part. All too often teens get sucked in to taking surveys for companies that promise big then turn around and pay them a couple of dollars an hour at the absolute best.
When it comes to "Free To Join" paid survey sites there are only a small number of survey sites that are well established and actually do pay the money they claim they do. If they join as many of these genuine survey sites as they can they will have an unlimited number of the higher paying surveys available to them each day when they log in. Getting jobs for 13 year olds has actually never been easier, you just have to know where to look.
Job seeking is a daunting task even in the best of times and, in the current economic climate, it’s even more so. It’s a predictably stressful event, next to buying or selling a home, having a child, getting married, getting divorced, or having some kind of emotional trauma. Ranking right up there with all of those things is the interview process itself and trying to land a new position. Supply and demand dictates that during good economic times, when fewer people are in the job market, you have less competition. Right now there’s a lot of competition so I hope these tips will help you.
In my many years in the staffing industry, I saw many unemployed individuals who were coming from a feeling of scarcity, their self-esteem totally eroded. That’s not the place you want to come from when looking for something new. If you’re one of the million people who were laid off in the last year, hang on to hope and take some action steps. Don’t make finding a new job your full time job. Inject some balance into your life by limiting your job search to a set number of hours per day. Volunteer some of your time (around your job search) so that you feel that you’re contributing something.
Ask people who like you (family & friends) to describe you in one word. “If you had to describe me in one word, what would that be?” Then write those words down so that you can look at them when you need to pump yourself up. Remember, you are worthy and you do have something to offer. Those descriptive words will reinforce that for you if you get the blues.
Always ask people you know, “Who do you know that’s hiring right now? I’m looking for a new job. “There may be certain people at your last job you formed friendships with, so stay in touch with them and remind them that you’re looking. Don’t let the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality take over for you or them.
