Jobs For Teens in Texas

Texas is a large state and there are plenty of activities for teenagers who live there. With a number of major cities in the state, there are an abundance of shopping and dining opportunities, as well as museums and live music to enjoy. Texas teens can also visit the Moody Gardens, Six Flags, and Seaworld San Antonio, as well as the arts mecca of Marfa. Attending high school football games on Friday nights continues to be popular. There are many waterparks throughout the state, and numerous state parks and natural areas for outdoor lovers to check out. Some teenagers are interested in gaining experience and earning some money through employment and the state’s 4.4% unemployment rate means that they should have no difficulty finding work.

If you're under 16 years of age, there are specific labor laws in Texas that don't allow you to work for traditional employers.  Of course, if you're 14 or 15 years old you can get a work permit in Texas, but otherwise there isn't too much information on this page that will help you.  With that being said, if you're under 16 years of age and don't have a work permit, please select the appropriate age below to find jobs that suit your age group.

If you're under 16 years old, your job options are different. Please select your age below:
