In any direction within a 1/2 hour drive of Boston has to have economic opportunities for someone just starting out on their first job.

(Google Earth image...)

I'm just gonna shotgun a few links for you to check. I hope something's useful.

Look at section F when you scroll down on this link:

Dive into the deep water and call the Secretary of the Dept. of Labor & Work Force Development.
Here's the number: 617-626-7100
Ask them what sort of opportunities someone your age has.

Here's an interesting resource for legal matters involving state employment laws.

If you really want to be the ATS member on the inside, here's government jobs.

Most Y.M.C.A. organizations have youth job placement programs, so that might be worth a look.

I'm not suggesting this applies to you, but a link to information for troubled youth seeking employment. An organization called YouthWorks.

The more contacts you put out there the better your chances of finding that perfect job. And one funny thing, it's when you have a job that you gain the contacts to find a better job.

If you narrow down the area around Boston that you live we can start watching the classified ads in local papers and look for other opportunities that might be right for you.

If you need help putting together a basic resume for your first job there are on-line services that give you a format to work with that includes your scholastic record, extracurricular activities, and interests.

Your school may even have a service to help students find job placement.

If you want any help putting a resume together let me know. Just don't post any personal information in a thread.

Just remember, at your age anything is possible and you have the time to carry out your dreams.

One job/scam i did as a kid was wash cars.

I had a red wagon full of what looked like every car cleaning product known to man. But all i really used was a bucket, wash and wax,some cloths, and maybe some tyre spray to make the tyers look new.

Knock on the door smile and say:

"Hi your car is a beauty, ive just invested in the ultimate car cleaning kit. and i will wash your car for $10 it will look as good as new when im finished, im the best" Or words to that effect.

Adults seeing a kid with a red wagon,willing to work ,and do a job they dont really like doing, will soon bite.

Pick the right area, on the right day, and you will be rolling in it.

I did it as often as i could when was young. Easy money

That's no scam, it's what I call initiative and ingenuity.
I miss the days when kids would come to the door and ask if you had any chores to do.

We have a couple boys around here that shovel snow for regular customers, but they also remove snow before asking and just leave a polite note on your door saying their services are available and a phone number.
You can bet the jobs they do for free get them a call for repeat business that they will get paid for.

It's that kind of pluck that I admire, and I've handed them a few bills plus tip to come by and shovel the walks around my place.

Remember Falken, you don't need to go the traditional route to make pocket money. The road less traveled often brings the greatest rewards.

You could volunteer at a charity shop, that would be really useful if you are looking to gain skills and experience in retail. Plus if you show potential you could be trained up to supervisor or assistant manager level.
