Need money for school, for your family, or just for yourself? You've come to the right place! Below you'll find a variety of job search engines and resume tips to help you find a way to make a little money on the side.
Teen Worknet Resume Tips:
Contains tips on what you should include on your resume and provides several sample resumes for you to look at. This is a good resource to get an idea of how to craft your resume, and a template is even included - though you could just as easily get templates through Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
City of Boston's Teen Resume Guide:
An excellent resource that breaks down what you should have on your resume - especially if you have next to no work experience. Much longer than Worknet's suggestions, but getting through it will help you craft an excellent resume.
Google Docs Resume Templates:
Creation of a free Google account is required to see these templates. Google offers a huge amount of resume templates you can copy and edit to suit your needs. All you need to do is click on each section and add your own information. Just keep in mind that these are templates- you don't have to fill out every section that's listed. For anything that isn't relevant to you, simply highlight and delete the section.

Apprenticeship Resources by State
Apprenticeships are an option for teens 16 and up looking to go into trades such as construction. In recent years, apprenticeships have expanded into IT and healthcare fields. The two main advantages are getting paid while you learn, and college degrees are not required. This page by ResumeBuilder explains what apprenticeships are, what career paths offer them, and sample resumes and cover letters.
