Many High School students are in need of a job. But do they look beneath the surface of the interview? Minimum wage, here in Arizona, is $8.05 per hour. While Seattle, Washington’s minimum wage is $15 per hour, incredible. Most high school students want a job to either pay their expenses; i.e. new shoes, paying off their new phone, or just simply helping out the family. But most students, while applying, don’t even mind looking at how much they pay. Most just want some type of job to be dependent of themselves.

Sunset Garcia, a Junior here at La Joya Community high school and an employee of Bakery Sg Cakes, explains why she started working in the first place, “I wanted to start being independent, and getting in the habit of working. On the weekends I work 8 hours, but on the weekdays I work 4-5 hours.” Garcia said.

Most students, when applying for a job, don’t have a plan to start managing their time. “Time management is very important. Especially with school, that’s why I always do my homework first then I go to work.” Explains Daniela Aguilar, a Junior here at La Joya Community high school.

A tip that many high school students use, is to apply to as many jobs as you can, “The more you apply and present yourself in the interview, the greater chance it will be for you to get the job.” Garcia said.

When asked the question “If you got paid higher, will you have more work ethic?” “Yes, it shows you boss that your willing to manage anything; it also show that your trustworthy and responsible.” Aguilar said.

A job can benefit many people gratefully. Whether its just to represent that you had experience working somewhere on your college resume, or just for fun. So, these are some of the high paying jobs for high school students:

(Disclaimer: Have to be 16 or older to apply for a job)
