As the school year winds down, and summer comes around the corner, students struggle to find activities to occupy themselves. Jobs are great for teens who love to spend money (but don’t have it), need something to do, and have a great work ethic.

The age required for different jobs vary. Some jobs allow 14 year olds, but require a workers permit. Getting a workers permit is easy, “Show me your I.D., and I’ll print it out for you” said Kelly DiBlasi, a counseling assistant. Getting a job at 14 years old is easy, because all you have to do is go to the counseling office and talk to Mrs. DiBlasi.

Most students have jobs at Smoky Hill. One student, Marilyn Quijada, a senior who works at Target, “I work because I have to help around with the family.” Quijada has worked at Target for six months. She worked at Papa Murphy’s prior to working at Target.
