teen summer job

Having a summer job for a teen is often the first step into adulthood. While it might not be the most glamorous job, that first summer job opens the door to understanding responsibility, the importance of being on time, realizing others rely on you and seeing the value in earning your own money. According to the Boston Private Industry Council, young people who work during the summer months tend to do better in school, transferring the skills they learned from working to their academic achievements. In addition, those who hold summer jobs tend to be more confident and have a better chance of getting full-time employment once they reach adulthood.

There's still time to get a summer job if your child is interested. Sites such as snagajob.com, indeed.com and hireteen.com all offer areas specific to teen jobs.

One of the first steps you can do to help them manage their summer job money is to have them open a Student Checking Account at Citizens National Bank. Many employers require direct deposit and your teen will need an account to have their money deposited to. Our Student Checking is free, doesn't require a minimum balance and offers free mobile banking and a debit card*. Learn more at cnbohio.com or stop by a CNB office today to open an account!


*Ages 13-17. Requires a parent co-signer. Automatically switches to a Free Checking Account once the student turns 18.
