If your teen is a social butterfly and loves interacting with people, restaurant employment might be right for her. She can choose from such positions as cashier, host/hostess, server, bus girl, food runner, dish washer, and prep cook. Many towns have popular and unique diners and drive-ins, which make for a fun and social working environment. Food industry positions can help your teen develop people skills, self-esteem, and responsibility, while enjoying a bit of socializing.
