Develop professional habits
As a teen you’re constantly learning new things, and picking up new skills. One of the most important skills you can refine while you’re in school and working part-time is your ability to conduct yourself in a professional and presentable manner. Those habits will help you in your college interview, or even the next job opportunity that’s right around the corner.
Extra Spending Money
“Mom can I borrow 20 dollars?” will eventually get old… usually sooner than later. Generally, it doesn’t look too good to the girl or gal you’re interested in, either. You’ll want to go shopping, go to the movies, or even save up to buy a car. Without that extra spending money you’ll miss out on that great sale, and not have enough money for gas to get around town.
Nothing feels better in the world than being told, “Job well done!” It will boost your confidence and help you make better decisions. Getting started working now and taking it seriously will help you later in life!
