Looking for winter teen employment? Winter, at least in the United States, can offer many seasonal jobs because of the holiday season. Nearly every employer jobs for teensw. And, that can work to your advantage!
Retail employment: Many retailers need more employees during the busy shopping season. Check out electronic stores, department stores, discount stores and toy stores. Try to find one that fits the most with your interests. Do you like clothing and working in an energetic store? Check out specialty stores like American Eagle or Forever 21. These types of stores usually have jobs for teens - and prefer to hire them since they are more familiar with the customers.
Gift wrapping: Not interested in sales? Many retailers and shopping centers offer gift wrapping services for customer who buy in their stores. This is one of the true seasonal jobs that you are likely only to find during the holidays.
Restaurants: Shoppers get hungry while they are out running all those holiday errands. Add that to kids on vacation and other holiday travelers, and you have restaurants in need of help.
Seasonal stores: Some shopping centers have stores that only open for the Christmas season. These can be for decorations or specialty gift items. Since they are only open for a short time, they have only seasonal jobs and hire each year instead of relying on staff already on hand.
Winter outdoor sports: Do you enjoy outdoor winter sports? Maybe these jobs will appeal to you. We have ice rinks and very small ski areas (basically one big hill with one lift) near us. Each of these need athletic (and often younger) employees so these are often popular jobs for teens.
Indoor sports areas: Like sports but not into working in cold weather? With outside activities being more limited, people are choosing to go to indoor activities. Rock climbing facilities and indoor swimming pools may need more help.
What ideas can you add to this list? Are there small stores in your area that use help during extended holiday hours or special promotions? Look for the unique opportunities to increase your chances of finding the best winter teen employment for you.
