    Basically, I'm 17 and my parents won't allow me to get a job.
    So out of interest I have three questions
    1. Do you think at 17, a person should be able to choose whether to persue a part time job as well as college?
    2. What age were you at when you got your first job?
    3. What was your first job?
    1. Hell yh
    2. Haven't got one yet.
    3. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    19 -- part time in summer after first year of uni.

    I think your parents probably want you to focus on your education, OP, which is probably the better option in the long run.

    How much is it that you want to work? There's a difference between a few hours at the weekends and every night.

    16.. or 15...

    I worked for a company that my mum worked for, not sure how legal it actually was to work at 15 (I was forced by my mum to go do it -_-) but yolo I enjoyed the money from it.

    After that my first actual job was at 17.

    13 - newspaper rounds, babysitting, and dog walking.

    If you don't count that, then 15 - carer for a lady with severe cerebral palsy (Friday nights and Saturday nights). Duties involved bathing her, feeding her, taking her to the toilet, getting her ready for bed, playing with her etc.
    Wow doing that at 15 is amazing and inspirational, imo, ngl

    I played competitive yugioh and made the equivalent of around £300 a month from selling cards on an eBay store at 13-14.

    I started working a part time retail job at 16, quit once I realized I could make more money just singing and rapping on the street corners.

    I'm now 18 working full time saving up money for next year when I intend to move to the U.K. (Obviously.)

    I started working on a farm at 14 and in a supermarket at 17, Work Experience is as important, if not more important, than your education.

    The first job I got for myself was a retail job when I was 20.
    I did a bit of babysitting before that though and I spent a summer in my uncle's company but I can't remember how old I was at the time.
