14 Easiest First Jobs in the World

If you are a young teenager who is thinking about finding the first job, do not be shy to ask which 14 easiest first jobs in the world are. We assume that you want to skip those scary or difficult jobs in the beginning. As opposed to the list of 9 Weirdest Jobs in the World, the easiest first jobs are usually done by teenagers who want to buy a better cycling helmet or a new Playstation unit, so if you are one of them, it is normal to start with something which does not put you to so much work or trouble.

As you might expect, it was not easy to find out and define what an easy job is. We wanted to include salary as one of the parameters since a lower payment usually implies that the job is easy to be done and that everybody can do it. But, things are much more complicated! A higher payment usually means having higher responsibilities at the job, higher education or certain knowledge or talent. However, the job itself does not have to be difficult. Employers are willing to pay more for a professional employee at a certain position regardless of the difficulty of the job he or she performs. We could not include the number of people performing certain jobs as a parameter either, because, for example, there can be a very small number of piano teachers in the world, but for those who love that job, it is the easiest job ever.

When you have a task to define easiest first jobs in the world, the question is what somebody thinks an easy job is. The answer is always about one’s own personal impression and feelings about the difficulty level and happiness at work, which provides you with the appropriate salary for the jobs you do and the efforts you make. I am sure that my older sister would never name babysitting as an easy job after so many hours spent babysitting for me when our parents were not at home! A difficulty level of a job is determined by the level of responsibility it implies, the number of hours spent at work, as well as the flexibility of working hours and what you define as physically and psychologically demanding.

We know that you are now curious to see how we have defined easy jobs. We could not find specific numbers or precise values while making the list of the easiest jobs, but we have managed to ask teenagers and their advisors what they thought about this topic. We thought that if we could collect a lot of opinions, we would be able to make a list of those jobs which had been mentioned more often than others. If a job is mentioned as an easy one on literally every blog for teenagers, it has to be easy, isn’t that right? So that is what we did. We explored influential and relevant sites with recommendations for teenagers, and then made a list of the jobs which were mentioned there (some of these sites mentioned more than 20 jobs) and then simply made a list of the jobs which were mentioned most. Jobs that have the same number of mentioning are ranked alphabetically. Now, let’s try to talk to teenagers and hear what they have to say about which are the 14 easiest first jobs in the world.

14. Amusement ride attendant

Mentions – 3

Amusement parks are great places for children. They are supposed to go on rides there, eat a lot of candies and spend great afternoons or weekends with friends and family. But, it is not always so interesting. If they are not careful (and they almost never are), they can hurt themselves or cause serious problems. That is the reason why every amusement park should have special differentiated positions for someone who will take care of the visitors, make sure that every rule is clear, understood and obeyed and who will clean the seats and prepare the amusement park for a new day.

13. Animal shelter worker

Mentions – 3

Although this can be a very difficult and demanding job, for those who love animals this job is a real pleasure. Workers must clean, feed and take care of animals as their first duty, but they can also do some office jobs (fill in different types of forms) or clean the cages and vehicles for transporting animals. Most importantly they get to hang out with cute dogs and cats!

12. Foodservice

Mentions – 3

There is a whole list of different jobs within this area. If you do not feel comfortable with preparing food or being a kitchen assistant, you can be a fast food cashier, work at food serving or simply sell food at different restaurants and fast food stalls. One of the benefits of this job is usually free of inexpensive food from your place of employment.

11. Golf caddy

Mentions – 3

For someone who does not play golf, this job seems very easy. You literally just need to carry sticks and follow the player all day long. Well, walking all day long does not sound easy, and that is not a complete job description. You must know the rules of this game; give some advice if it is needed and after a day at work, maybe clean the equipment and rooms in the club.

10. Grocery store employment

Mentions – 3

All the goods in supermarkets must be put on the shelves, right? Regular employees do not have time to put every single article on the appropriate shelf or change its place if it is needed. As a result, part-time employees are hired to do this job for a low salary. This does not have to be a difficult job at all, furthermore it’s one of the easiest first jobs in the world, but you should count on standing all day long and looking at those boring shelves.

9. Internships

Mentions – 3

The first job does not always include a salary. You can choose to be a volunteer or work for a very low salary in exchange for learning and getting good experience for the future. You can help your city in film or art festivals, help children in workshops. If you are a high school or college graduate, you can practice something from the domain of your profession or help young students in choosing their future profession.

8. Landscaper lawn care

Mentions – 3

Besides the fact that you do not need any knowledge aside from how to run the equipment for doing this job, it is good to say that you can find the employment practically everywhere. Ask your neighbors or family if they need help with their lawn or offer to mow the lawn for a small amount of money.  Just make sure to stay hydrated and be alert when using the machines.

7. Packing and Moving

Mentions – 3

For this job, among the other on our list of easiest first jobs in the world, you will need muscles, but do not worry about that. There are many companies which have many employees for this job, so you can share the strength for a heavy load or use handtrucks and carts as well. However, knowing that not all the stuff in somebody’s home are heavy, this does not have to be such a difficult job but one that requires a love of lifting.

6. Dog walker

Mentions – 3

We all know what this job means so you can imagine why it is on this list of 14 easiest first jobs in the world. People, unfortunately, do not have time for walking their dogs as much as it is needed, so they hire people to do that instead of them. Sometimes, a dog walker has more than 5 dogs to walk every day and the worst thing about this job is that you cannot just skip a working day without the appropriate explanation. Love for animals is a must.

5. Tutor

Mentions – 3

Being a tutor is one of the easiest first jobs in the world. Howerver, being a tutor for a child who has a problem with school lessons is possible only if a tutor is a good student and has patience. But, tutoring is more than just giving lessons. The tutor is one of those people who help children to build their character, choose a future career or change bad habits and improper behavior.

4. Babysitting

Mentions – 4

As we have said before, not everyone can do this job, but it does not have to be difficult if you choose the children you work with. Sometimes you will babysit for older children, so your job might be just to make sure that they finish their homework and go to bed before their parents come back or an infant who you have to check on but sleeps the whole time. The rest of the evening you can spend on a couch watching movies on TV.

3. Camp Counselor

Mentions – 4

At number three on our list of easiest first jobs in the world  is one of those summer jobs for young people who love children, nature and who have leadership skills. Depending on the type of the camp, you can work with young sportsmen or fussy children, but usually you won’t be in charge. Nobody will give you too much responsibilities for leading kids through difficult duties–you should have tons of support from older staff and other counselors. Surely nobody will expect you to be popular and loved by everybody in the camp, but you can go far if you are friendly!

2. Car washer

Mentions – 4

This is also one of the jobs which practically can be done every time you need money. Everybody will be happy to pay a small amount for car washing, so if you choose to do this job, start with your neighbors, family, and your own parents. You can also be employed in a big car wash service and do some other things, like changing oil for example, if you are willing to learn.

1. Lifeguard

Mentions – 5

And the winner is a job which demands muscles, courage, and skills, but after a while, that can be a very simple job at a swimming pool or children birthday parties, where people need someone to keep an eye on their children and make sure that they are safe. If we ignore the obvious importance of having special skills and talents, the reason why this job is in the first place of 14 easiest first jobs in the world is because there is no need for any preparations or special education for doing this job.
