What are some good first jobs for high school students?
I'm a sophomore in high school looking for something different than the usual food service/mall job. I applied to my local bank as a teller but lost out to another girl from my school. She was also looking for a first job, but she had personal connections with the hiring section. The salary for that job was $9.50 an hour. What are some similar jobs that do not require that the workers have graduated high school? Entry level is fine, and I'd work for minimum wage if I had to. I'm not afraid of hard work but I'm not so much into manual labor. I'd prefer something more intellectual, like the bank teller job referenced before. My references are good and my grades/class rank/other school records are impeccable, but I don't have any work experience other than babysitting. Thanks for your help and if you have any suggestions, that would be wonderful! i'm located near Kansas City, KS, if that helps in your search. I appreciate all your suggestions, but something OTHER than food service and clothing retail would be my preference, at least when I start my search.

Probably a fast food restraunt because it will leave you more energy after school to do homework and keep up grades
