Jobs for late age teenagers?

By Tristan 31 May 2009 24

Hey everyone

I’m an almost 17yr old boy and have found it increasingly hard to find some part-time work to mix in with my studies. I know it’s supposed to be a recession or watever people want to call it but i was wondering if anyone had seen any job advertisements that would suit me? I live in Campbell (near Civic) anything around there would be a really good help

I know that DFO and Brand Depot always have signs up – it might be a hassle in terms of transport though. I suspect that might be one of the reasons they’re always looking for people.

Tristan, if you approach them with an open mind and expect nothing in the way of loyalty by the employer, you would be fine…

The same can be said about many employers. Including the APS.

Speaking of which, Ant, I noticed Harris Scarfe in dickson (closer to your location, Tristan) is advertising for staff.

my wife worked for the HS in erindale. they reduced her hours, and those of several other people due to the “economic downturn”, until she received a letter stating that she could reapply for her job, if she wanted. amazing the way casuals are treated there. more amazing the way she was terminated. not even in person.

HS are a chain that has grown in canberra via acquisition. Unfortunately, they have acquired the old mindset of the prior company. Tristan, if you approach them with an open mind and expect nothing in the way of loyalty by the employer, you would be fine…

For my two cents worth – there’s nothing like starting your own business. Think about the things that you could do – maybe gardening (lawn mowing etc.), cleaning, child minding, dog walking, house sitting, academic tutoring, etc. and offer those services to the market. In most cases you should be able to structure the delivery of services in a way that doesn’t conflict with your studies.

The ACT government, ASIC and ATO websites have great information for people looking to start up a business and at the ‘sole trader’ entry level the tax and other legislative requirements aren’t prohibitively complicated or expensive.
