Jobs For Teens in Connecticut

There are a surprising variety of things to do in Connecticut; visit historic ships at Mystic Seaport, enjoy an aerial adventure center in Manchester, and even ski and snowboard. There are opportunities to tour limestone caverns, and as well as a discovery park with obstacle courses. Living in Connecticut also offers easy access to New York City and Boston.  Unemployment is 5.7% in the state, and there are plenty of opportunities available for teens who are interested in earning money and gaining valuable experience.

If you're under 16 years of age, there are specific labor laws in Connecticut 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 Connecticut, 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.
