High school teens: Do you want a summer job?

Posted on May 24, 2012



Attention teens! Making money this summer just got easier. Employers all over the state are looking for high school summer employees, and you could qualify. The Mayor’s Summer Jobs Campaign has teamed up with Boston Private Industry Council to help teens find summer jobs and be on the road to a successful career.

In addition to gaining work experience, teens can also find ways to better themselves and the community around them. By giving teens work, local employers are also hoping to help youth stay off the streets and participate in something rewarding.

This is a great opportunity for teens to get exposure to the professional world, and help them decide how they want to steer their career path. Opportunities like these give teens a step ahead of the competition.  Summer jobs can help develop skills and resources for teens they’ll need in the future.

Here’s the criterion for qualifying:

  1. Social security card
  2. Picture ID if you’re over 18
  3. Informal work history
  4. Reference sheet of people who would be able to recommend you (think teachers, coaches, etc)
