I'm 16 and can't find a job!! What do I do?
My dad is moving away, and my mom is buying a 1 bedroom apartment and not telling me or my brother where she's moving. We are both 16, but he's had a boyfriend for the last 17 months so he's probably going to live with him. I on the other hand have been applying for jobs for 2 months, and had no call backs or interviews. I have 3 months till my mom moves and I only have $200 saved up. Another problem is i'm on juvenile probation. I want to get emancipated and move in with my sister in manhattan. What can I do for extra cash? All i've been doing is buying and selling off craigslist for a little cash.

Yea your in a tight situation. Go back to the places you've applied at already, ask to talk with the manager, ask if there is any jobs available and that you've already applied and you're just following up. Some of them like that, you're being assertive not annoying... More

you dont have to get emancipated to live with your sister if your parents are flat out moving away. save up enough for the transportation there (plane, bus whatever) and figure out what to do there, probably more places for a job. also spice up your resume a bit. even if you are not a professional try to sound like one...

i think that you should just get a little job like walking dogs or something. having a record will prob ruin a lot of job opportunity for you. Maybe at McDonald's cause my brother has been in and out of jail and he still has his job there.
