website for teens looking for freelance jobs - April 30th 2016, 03:43 PM

Hey all, so I'm seventeen years old and I have finished my final national examination (sort of like the A-levels, I guess) but the announcement (whether I pass it or not) is on May 10th so until that day I don't have anything to do but I can't apply anywhere as a fresh high school graduate because technically I haven't graduated. I can't even apply for working as a part-time waitress because I still don't have a high school diploma (like, for all they know I might've failed my finals and not graduate from high school this year).

So, any of you guys here know some websites for teens like me to look for freelance jobs? Like an Odesk or Elance website but for teens who maybe are not as qualified as fresh uni graduates but still know a thing or two about some field? It also doesn't have to pay that handsomely, I understand I'm not a professional. (I've signed up for Odesk and Elance but people there are at least a bachelor in something so I thought I won't stand a chance.)

Thank you very much for reading this, sorry if I don't sound that well-informed about this thing

I took the one l e s s traveled by

And that has made a l l the difference

Wow, your situation makes mine sound cute. What kind of country won't even hire you as a waitress until or unless you've graduated from high school? Where I live, soooo many people who work retail and food service jobs are high school students because those are unskilled jobs and thus the only ones that they can get.

Is money an issue? You clearly have a command of English (I have no idea where you live though, could be Australia for all I know) and you could try volunteering for a North American non-profit. Lots of them need copywriters (e.g. for social media, press releases, blogs) and can be done online. You could try Buzzfeed, Mary Sue and other sites like that too. Also, maybe make your own blog? Lots of these things don't make you much (or any) money but at least you can get experience.

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

Several people (including myself) seem to have had some success on Fiverr. The bar to entry and getting projects is relatively low, because (unfortunately) the pay is low - so yeah, IF a steady income of a certain amount isn't of the most importance, if you're mostly looking for just something to do while raking in a little extra cash, that could be something to look into. There are tons of different services you can offer on there. And, plus, once you've built up a solid base of reviews and ratings, you could always link to your profile as proof of quality when looking for larger / more high paying projects later on.

"If limitations exist, it is because we have erased the possibility of potential."

Feel free to PM me if you ever need anything.
