Jobs for High School Students

job for a high school studentJobs for high school students usually suck. They tend to be part-time, low pay, and terrible hours. That is why I have a better offer for any high school student looking for work.

I worked some of the worst jobs when I was in high school but you do not have too. You can do something you love and enjoy after school or on the weekends. This is something for you to enjoy and make money from in your free time.

Jobs usually are not fun, but this is going to be a lot of fun.

There is only one job every high school should have, that is working online doing something you love.

Let me show you the best job for a high school student.


What you will be doing

Working a job should be fun, especially when you are in high school and have higher priorities. That is why this is the best job you will ever have.

There is a 4 step process of how you will be making money.

  1. Choose your interest or passion.
  2. Build a website.
  3. Generate traffic to your website.
  4. Earn revenue from your visitors.

Being in high school, every paper you do is on the computer. You understand how to use Google for research, then there is no reason you cannot do this and make money.

Working on something online that you love blows away those boring school papers. It is very simple to build a website, the hardest part is getting traffic to your website but you will learn how to do this.

Start by choosing something you love.

Building a website is not hard anymore. If you can search and type, you can build a website.

How you will gain traffic

Gaining traffic to your website is going to be the hardest part. But, we will show you exactly how to do this the right way.

The more visitors you have, the more money you will make.

People will be finding you through search engines, mostly Google. When you become ranked on the first page of search engines, you will have lots of visitors to your website.

You will learn how to use keywords on your website for people to find you. When someone types in those keywords into the search box, your website will show up.

There is no better income than passive income. That is exactly how you will make money. When your website is up and running, you will be making money even when you are not online.

There are two ways you will be making money.

  1. Using ads on your website.
  2. Affiliate marketing products related to your interest.

The first way you will be making money is with ads on your website. All you need to do is register an account with Google Adsense, when someone clicks on that ad, you get paid.

The second way is by selling products through your website that you do not own. You can learn about affiliate marketing here. What you do is have a special link to a product online, when someone clicks that link and purchases it, you receive a commission.


How you will be trained for a new job

Every job is going to have training and learning. This is no different than the crappy jobs that high school students usually have. This however, will be training that will be useful forever. Learning how to market online is perfect for the digital age.

There are lesson courses for you to follow. The lesson courses will put you on the correct path to succeed online. There is also a boot camp course that will teach you how to be successful online too.

The lessons are filled with daily tasks for you to follow and accomplish. The lessons will also have a video walkthrough that will show you the correct ways to do it.

I do not know about you, but I am a visual learner.


Support with your new job

The jobs that high school students usually have no support. They are run by a terrible boss who only pays minimum wage. That is very different from this.

The owners, Kyle and Carson are there to help you. If you have questions you can go directly to the owners. Understand a lot of people ask them for help so their response takes about 24 hours.

The real support comes from Site Support.

Site Support is a team of experts who will help you with technical issues. All you need to do is fill out a question and within minutes your technical issue will be fixed.

There is also a Site Manager which will show you all the data related to your website.

The bad of your new job

Every job is going to have a downside. But the difference between this and a crappy job you would normally take is that this is a business of your own. There is going to be a few negative things.

  • Overwhelming – When you first start there is a lot of new information and you may feel overwhelmed.

  1. Awesome article! I really enjoy the information and it sounds so easy to start your own online business when you have the right tools and training.

    Thank you for sharing.

    All the best,


  2. I know that they now have classes for entrepreneurs in college, but I don’t think most schools are forward thinking enough to introduce their students to using the internet to earn money. At this age, it’s still just a social thing. I love the course that you’ve outlined and think it should be required!

    1. Wenda,

      The courses are designed for beginners which are great since there is no kind of learning like this in high school. Not only will kids be able to earn money, but they will be learning skills that will stay with them forever. Which beats any minimum wage job that is usually offered to someone still in HS, those jobs you get not real world training.


  3. Hi thank you for your great insight.
    This sounds like a good idea especially knowing that anyone can blog about almost anything under the sun,it means, a lot of niches to be discovered and talk about.

    However, may you brief about the cost needed to have a running website? The hosting cost? Keyword tool and everything?


    1. The costs as a free member – none. You get 2 free websites and free hosting. There is a free keyword tool too.

      As a paid member which is one flat price a month includeds 50 hosted websites and a free keyword tool plus a lot more.

  4. Hey Kurtis!
    Boy, what I wouldn’t give to come across your article back then when I first started! Earning was so hard when I was still in high school, I had to juggle work and find time to study.

    I remember I used to wash 5 cars on the weekend so that I could earn $25 and for a high school student, it was hard. If I would have started blogging and followed you, I would have made tens of thousands a month by now. But I hope you can inspire other high school students to take advantage of this, definitely worth trying. Loving your article man, cheers

    1. Riaz,
