Making money online as a teenager can be a very frustrating job. Companies won’t hire you because you are inexperienced and if someone does, they may not pay you well. There aren’t many teen jobs that pay well in the market, so most of the teenagers do odd jobs, like serving as a waiter in a restaurant or a cashier at a supermarket.

Make Videos on YouTube:

Probably one of the best and enjoyable teen jobs that pay well. YouTube is the ‘in thing’ these days.  Start by making videos on any interesting topics on YouTube and monetize them with advertising.


I have seen so many videos of teenagers on subjects like beauty, motivation, mental health, food recipes, and so much more, and they are making good money out of them.

Freelancing Platforms:

I started my career as a content writing on Upwork 7 years ago, and it was a good decision. I had to work really in the beginning though in maintaining a good profile for my clients. But in the end, all the hard work paid well for me.


If you work hard too, you can become one of the top freelancers on freelancing platforms like Upwork, Freelancer, Fiverr, etc. and start making money online by writing or some other field.

Above are my top recommendations for teen jobs that pay well. You must have seen ads and websites asking you to buy their products or enroll in their courses to make hundreds of dollars quickly. They look very attractive, but beware! These are scams that will not only waste your time but can also take your private information to hack you, so be careful.
