Some teenagers have it all figured out and know which field they want to pursue. If your teen wants to gain experience for her professional future, an internship is the best part-time employment plan for her. Your teen can log hours at an internship after school or on the weekends to earn credit and experience. Many internships are unpaid, but the job experience can lead to future employment. If the experience is more important than the money, an internship will propel your teen in the right direction as she gains confidence, professional knowledge, and real-world experience.
