When i was 14 years old, i used to do the following odd jobs:
1) TCS (previously known as SBC) 'Kalefe' or 'background acting crew'
- The company called Gar Meng Entertainment located at Lavender. Pay is sucky but can meet lots of actors and actress
2) Sell Xmas cards
3) Door to Door Surveyor (company name is called 'Forbes' )
You can try see newspapers see whether the above companies still available or not

actually, i think both Stylus C34 and user111 have a point... I decided to work only now cos i have eat, sleep, play, relax for the whole of november until i am bored. So I guess i need to earn some extra cash, gain some working experience, and ease my parents load :P... Half half... But thanks for your comments and advise esp Bernard Ong... will see if there's anymore vaccancies... thanks...

when i was 14, i worked as cleaner in Times House(kim seng rd there).
8th December 2004, 12:02 PM
mac got contract one i think... like three months or so... then dun think anyone wants me as a cleaner... haha...

14yrs old too young la, under the MOM law, a casual worker has to be 16 and above. 14 is like secondary 2.

1) Mediacorp's Extra's pay is like $150 per week. and u are required to be there until the filming finishes, thats what my classmates used to do. pay is super low.

Sell xmas cards also have a quota to reach la, like the charity tickets, like the charity tiks, u sell a book worth $100 and u extract $20 off the money u make.
But please a word of advise, there is recently a Ad on the newspaper under the Classified Recruit Others section, they stated that they are looking for Event Co-ordinators and Customer Service and they state no experience required and Students welcome. PLease PLease do not get cheated, coz i went there and guess wad Event Co-ordinators and Customer services do ? sell charity tickets.. at the intervew they will sound as though they are recuiting, but they are not. Juz to caution you. and i hope others who are here can see this and know this super big fraud. I also will name the company here.. its called JDL International. it is a so called Direct Sales Marketing Company. so please ah... some jobs they put like that is to cheat students into the job.
(Note: if u encounter pple along or surrounding the orchard area, and pple who holds booklets and tell u they are raising funds for the drug centre and the ticket is blue in colour and theres 2 $5 voulcher which consist of a Kicker voulcher and some other thingy there.... so thats its a JDL thingy)
since u are student, u will be exposed to things like MLM ( Multi Level Marketing ), BLM ( Binary Level Marketing). stay away, and if they ask you to go to their office for a visit. do not go.. i went once, the company was called NTI something la.. den they got a very senior guy and tried to brain wash me, it was some sort of a Pyramind system which u will nv be on top. and theres new systems, as they claimed, but its not true. in they end u will be at the losing end.
despite my young age, i experienced this stupid things b4.. and know i am stuck in the kitchen.. tats all...
3) Forbes became a Magazine i think, and the Door-to-door surveyors are being scraped off liao i think... (nt sure on this too)
anyway, Mediacorp has alot of extras and they have no shortage of them, so what u can do is pull strings in... .
when u are 16, i can intro u to work in Suntec lor, they sure will take u in la..
u can work there as a Banquet Waiter, and they pay is like $5-$9 per hr. $9/hr is only on CNY Eve. and the best part is u work onli when u want to, when u want to work, juz call them, and they will arrange u, when u dun wan to work all u haf to do is dun call and sit back and watch tv.
when u are older, u can pm me lor, i can intro u work in Suntec or Inter-Continental. take ur pick ~ lol...
my 2cents and 3yrs in job sourcing... lol.. and countless interviews.. in which 8 out of 10 is crappy ones... = . - !!!

glennyong, thanks for ur long message and advice... well... think i'm still not gonna give up hope... The MOM website states: (http://www.mom.gov.sg/MOM/CDA/0,1858...7----1,00.html)
Q: Is there any minimum age restriction before a child can be employed?
A: Yes. The child must be at least 13 years of age.
hence, i am legal to work... and mac do hire people like me... but... i think i will have better chances next school holidays... so now i only have to wait..
and yea... my parents had also warn me about MLM... will be extra careful...
if charity ticks are meant for charity.... then the person working should not have pay. will take note of the company and warn my friends.
will PM you when i am older (if I remember), and once again, thanks for your help!!!
