Jobs For Teens in Tennessee

Tennessee is a state with plenty of things to keep oneself occupied. Teenagers who enjoy outdoor activities have plenty of options; Great Smoky Mountain National Park offers a variety of opportunities for enjoying time in nature and zip lining and white water rafting are also available in the state. For those who are not as enthusiastic about the outdoors, teens can spend time in Graceland and Dollywood and visit the Country Music Hall of Fame. With several good size cities, Tennessee also offers an assortment of museums, shopping and restaurants. For teenagers that are hoping to gain work experience as well as earn some money, the unemployment rate in the state of 4.1% means that there are opportunities to be had.
