in the US you can work at 14.
under 16 the hours are limited while school is in session but you can work.
You can work in an:
amusement park, or
gasoline service station.
this website is from the US Department of Labor it has
more info about what permits you need(in some states permit is not needed), hours you can work, job suggestions, interview information etcetra go to “youthrules” there are links for teens, employers, parents and educators for each state.
different companies have different policies about hiring minors so just apply the worst thing that can happen is they say no. when you go dress neat, clean, and appropriately for the business, be polite and ask for an application and the appropriate time to bring it back. you will need references so talk to teachers, ministers, anyone you have done casual labor for, friends parents etcetra be sure to ask if you can use them as a reference and let them know to expect calls from employers. good luck you’ll do great.
Yes. There are a lot of jobs. I found this site and i think it is great for you.
All the info you need is there.
