    I am sure there are plenty of local stores that are looking for part-time help. You might also consider trying web development (which has a low barrier to entry) - take some classes in the local community college in the evening or just start playing around on your own using online tutorials to help you.

    The key at this point is to be focused on graduating with good grades from school and college will definitely get you started on your life. Good luck!

    There are many things you can do to better your resume for later. Babysitting, volunteer work, you name it. You may not make a lot of money doing these things, no money for the volunteer work, but they'll be really welcome additions to your resume.

    Employers look for people willing to go above and beyond, hard workers, people that are motivated. Start now and there's no limit to what you can do.

    Good luck.

    Good point about community service - this is a great way of giving back and also helping your resume. I know a lot of kids are doing this - almost to a fault in that they seem to forget the purpose of this kind a service - but still a good thing!

    Check out some supermarket chains. They often will hire some younger employees and will work around your school schedule as well.

    It can also get your foot in the door so that you can move up to other positions, increase your pay and responsibilities, and still easily continue with your education.

    Then focus on stashing most of your money away. Be careful as it can be very easy to start spending when you start earning!
