Many people say that looking for jobs for 13 year olds is very difficult. Although there are some jobs that do not need a minimum age requirement, like paper delivery or baby-sitting, these jobs do not pay that much and they are very time-consuming as well. Applying as store clerks is out of the question because certain laws make it illegal for storeowners to hire 13-year olds. Luckily, the Internet is offering something better.
The Internet is definitely changing the world. No longer do these kids have to wait for the interview. In a matter of seconds, they will automatically know if they are hired or not. The whole hiring process will just take one day or less. They do not have to endure those hiring process that will last a whole month. The most attractive part of these online jobs is the pay and the time requirement. The pay is very competitive and some of these jobs do not need the kid to be out of the house.
An example of these online jobs is taking online surveys. It is very popular nowadays with 13-year olds. It is very simple. They answer short anonymous surveys on subject, like TV shows, movies, magazines, and many other topics and products. But the most important part about these online survey jobs is that they can still manage to have a social life. The teens earn an average of $20 to $40 per hour. There are no work time requirements. They do not even have to travel. All they need is an Internet connection and a bank account, and that’s it! Makes you want to go back to being a 13-year-old, right?
Taking an online survey is very easy. It just involves clicking on check boxes or filling in the information needed. Once this is done, the money is then transferred directly to their bank account and after that, they move on to the next set of surveys. The only hard part is looking for the right survey company to work with. There are many survey companies that promise good pay but when payment time comes up, they disappoint you.
There are only a few number of survey sites that actually pay what they promise. Still, these teenagers can still get as many of those low-paying survey sites. Add all those few dollars and they can still reach the $20 to $40 mark. But it would still be best for the teen to be able to work with honest, good paying companies. It helps these teenagers realize that hard work does pay a lot. Taking all these into consideration, one can surmise that jobs for 13 year olds have never been this easy.
