Job Portal: For Teens

This Job Portal was created during the COVID-19 Pandemic as a way for Library staff to offer help to the Austin community through a challenging and uncertain job market.

Teen Job Opportunities

Austin has several unique employment opportunities just for teens. See below for some of our favorites.

Tips for Teen Job Seekers

How to land a job as a teen

  1. Get a Work Permit in Texas (if you're under 16)
  2. Brainstorm and research job options - don't limit yourself to "teen" jobs like fast food.
  3. Gain experience (and a reference) - small jobs & volunteering pay off, big time. 
  4. Be able to name your skills - you've got marketable skills (we promise)
  5. Get your documents together to apply
  6. Know how to ace your interview - interviews are the final exam (not a pop quiz)
