As a teenager you are in a unique position to get jobs that are really cool and fun. A great example is a job at an amusement park. Theme parks and amusement parks are almost always looking for new talent and they often target their recruiting towards candidates age 14, age 15, age 16, age 17, age 18, and age 19.
The following teen job finder postings were taken from the website of Six Flags / White Water of Atlanta, Georgia. But there are theme parks all over the place, so review these and then check out the parks near you.
** You’ll notice that the jobs that deal with money require you to pass a math test. Don’t worry; they’re not going to get into Calculus or Geometry. They just want to make sure that you will not have a complete nervous breakdown when you have to figure out how much change to give a customer.
