Clean a few cars....my 12 year old makes about £60 a month five pounds for a wash and chamois and another five for hoovering and cleaning the inside. takes him about an hour to do the outside and an hour and a half to do the inside.

I'm impressed. However, I wouldn't give my own kids a tenner to do my car, so you must live in a very wealthy neighbourhood, or he does a fabulous job. Maybe you just scare the neighbours into paying up :)

Too old? jeesis, it's a tough gig these days, not like in my day.

He does do a good job....I didn't just let him loose on peoples cars, I trained him up to do it properly and efficiently. He dresses the tyres and always does the inside as well as the outside of the windscreen even if he's not doing the inside valet... My neighbours think he is showing initiative and are happy to pay what he asks, some even give him an extra tip

my advice would be not to 'go round' a few places but to make your own CV-i realise your experience will be limited but any interests/hobbies or personal experiences can go on it. Then print them making sure contact numbers are on it and put in envelopes. Then go to the places that may be of interest to you, dressed ready as if you were going to an interview-look smart and clean(suit not needed lol)
Ask to see the personel manager (dont just leave it with anyone) and introduce yourself and explain what you are doing and ask if they have any positions..a lot will say you're too young..then ask them to keep on file. A lot will say nothing now but ditto for that. Make a list of whom you have left them with (remember names) then follow up weekly/fortnightly with a quick call for the ones who would take under 16s. If you show maturity some employers will overlook your age. My daughter was working at 15. My son was at 15. They followed my advice and got jobs quite quickly...dont just pop round asking...you need potential employers to remember you if they get a vacancy.

My daughter got her first job at 15 a little while back, she works in a little Deli in a shopping centre, a lot of her friends work in the big chain stores in the town centre, they have to work out back till they are 16 then they can go on the shop floor.
I agree with Plumberman01, do a good CV and send it round, don't be scared to phone people, be confident in your ability and it will show you're mature enough to have the responsibility of a job.
Good luck
