At any age you can
work at a business owned or operated by your parents
and in most states
work as an actress in radio, TV, theater or movies
at as young as 12 in most states you can
work on a PRIVATE farm hand-picking or selling fruits and/or vegetables
deliver newspapers or periodicals
umpire/referee in a MUNICIPAL league
caddy at a PUBLIC course
you can also do "casual labor" (work for an individual in their home) such as
legally in the US under FLSA a minor 14 or older may work in an:
Amusement park, or
Gasoline service station
BUT...due to the high the unemployment rate at this time it is very difficult for minors to get a job.........the jobs that use to be held by teens and retirees are now being taken by adults trying to support their families.........
Fast-food and grocery stores are willing and able to train new employees but........................
Minors tend to have many issues that affect their ability to work such as tardiness, absenteeism, and numerous schedule requests, poor work-ethic etcetera.
I am NOT implying you will have those issues but the fact that many your age do makes it more difficult for you to get an opportunity to prove your worth.
Most businesses are individually owned and operated so it is the owner’s policy and past experience with minors that will determine if they will hire you. Apply everywhere you can, the worse that can happen is they don't hire you.
Businesses such as Publix, Kroger's, Food Lion, Sonic, Chic-Fill-A, McDonald's, Winn-Dixie, Krystal's, Dairy Queen, and Burger King along with smaller local businesses that are in the same genre tend to hire those your age.
Remember just because they legally can hire you does NOT mean they have to hire you or they will hire you. A lot depends on the employment outlook in your area, and the past luck (good or bad) the employer has had employing minors.
