Jacob M., Chatham, NJ, age 14
What Jobs have you gotten through TeenJobsNJ.com?
I've taught two students guitar on a weekly basis, and I did some mulching work.

How did you feel when you found out you got the jobs?
I was happy and also a little bit excited. I felt like I was finally going to be able to get a job and earn money.

What do you plan on doing with the money you earn?
I've already put a little bit of money into the bank and since one of my students wanted to learn the bass I used the rest of the money I earned to buy a guitar effect that makes your guitar sound like a bass, so I could teach her. It turned out to work really well and now I teach bass along with guitar!

What special skills do you have to offer employers?
I'm hard working, I'm well organized, I'm willing to put in as much time as possible to get the job done right, and I'm good at problem solving.

Any additional thoughts, comments?
Overall I really enjoyed using this website to get a job. The process was so easy and simple, and also it allows kids to get a job in the line of work they prefer which is a really special thing especially when it's hard to find any jobs in the first place. The website also finds jobs close to you so you don't have to go too far. My experiences teaching guitar from this website have always been really great because the students I've taught have always been amazing and eager to learn which makes it really fun to teach!
