Top 10 jobs for Indian teens your parents won't say no to (2023)

(Last update: January 8, 2022)

Finding a job for an Indian teenager is a difficult task for anyone. The regulations say that employing people under the age of 18 will be considered child labour. So how can a teenager in India earn some money legally and generate his own pocket money? Let's deal with the facts:

India is a country with a population of 1.32 billion

According to trade economics:

– The highest employment rate is 29.6 million

– The highest unemployment rate is 44 million

– The professional activity rate is 52.90%

– Youth unemployment rate is 18.10%

Now, of course, these statistics do not include teenage people, but we can clearly see employment conditions in India having a labor force participation rate of over 50%.

So why is India's employment rate so low? Perhaps our young people do not have the skills required to do a good job. We get an education, but our schools and colleges unfortunately don't teach us the specific skills required for the job, so how can you think of doing a job with a very low skill rate? Please don't consider these words offensive because by that I don't mean to say that Indian teenagers have no skills at all but with their provided skill set the number and type of jobs available to them is quite limited even when including online part time jobs.

In addition, sometimes there is a distrustful attitude of parents who do not allow their children to work under any circumstances. On the other hand, poor children who really have to work to earn a living for their family have it harder.

The main reasons why Indian parents do not let their children work are:

“Think it will affect the family's reputation. (big NO)

“They don't believe in their children's abilities.

– They want their child to focus more on learning, not realizing that the lack of skills and experience is the cause of rising unemployment in India.


You can just move on to the job that seems most interesting to you, but I suggest you read them all, who knows what new information or what great idea might pop into your head.

Yes, the first thing I would put on this list is blogging. Blogging refers to posting any text content on the World Wide Web in a text format and writing about a specific topic. This is one of the best jobs online from home.

Funny fact: There are 440 million bloggers worldwide.

Blogging is a skill that allows you to share your experiences with the world and any other things you would like to share. It is a platform where you can really showcase your talent. All you need to do is upload good quality content every week and Ole! Your blog will start attracting visitors if you stay patient.

Your parents are indeed proud of this skill and don't consider blogging a disrespectful job. If you start blogging at a young age, you might be considered cool in school or college.

10.1 How to make money blogging?

It's easy, basically you need to get a domain or subdomain and hosting service to set up your blog. It may require a small investment, but it is worth it. In fact, you can start your journey with a subdomain for which it existsno hosting service or investment requiredfrom your end,you can pay for domain and hosting later when people start visiting your blog.

10.3 What is hosting? What is the difference between hosting and domain?

While the domain refers to the identity of your website, hosting is the part where your website is running or the host is hosting the domain. Just as your cell phone and computer have storage space, RAM, and CPU, web hosting also includes RAM, storage, and CPUs to run your websites and traffic (numbers of visitors to your website). Hosting plans vary a lot and there are different types of hosting such as shared hosting, WordPress hosting, Linux hosting, Windows hosting, etc. We will not go into details. As a beginner, you can choose a shared or WordPress hosting plan from sites likeBluehostLubHostgator

10.4 What is Google AdSense? How to make money with Adsense?

There are many ways to make money by blogging and the best one is Google AdSense. It is AdSense's responsibility to display ads on your blog. Every time a visitor clicks on an ad placed on your blog, you get paid for that click. For example, if your monthly traffic is 1,000 and 100 people click on your ads, you'll get paid for each of those 100 clicks.

Top 10 jobs for Indian teens your parents won't say no to (1)

The ratio of impressions (ad impressions) to actual clicks is called CTR or Click Through Rate. It is CTR and CPC (Cost per click) that determine your AdSense earnings. If your site has 100 clicks on an ad, it doesn't mean you'll pay the same for all clicks. The income you get from clicks is based on multiple sources such as the country your traffic is coming from, what niche your blog is and where your traffic is coming from. You can use SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to increase your website traffic and there is nothing better than thatMOZwhen it comes to learning SEO.

Now you can even monetize your blog simply by upgrading to premium WordPress plans, saving yourself a lot of effort:

The whole world is subject to the harmful and glorious effects of social media. With the advent of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Kik, and Snapchat, the way people interact has changed. On these platforms, we feel strongly connected to the content we see on them. Memes are the kind of content that gets a lot of attention because humor is the key in this type of graphic imagery.

According toWikipedia, meme means - "A meme is an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture—often to convey a particular phenomenon, theme, or meaning represented by the meme.

But we go with the practical definition of a meme in today's world, which refers to the humorous representation of things in the graphic of images.

You might not believe it, but creating memes is one of the perfect online activities for students because only they have the right mood for it!

9.1 So Now! How to make money by creating memes?

Basically, there are many options. You can be hired by meme sites that upload memes to Facebook and Instagram daily. If you want to make big bucks just by creating memes, I'd suggest you start making memes for They don't pay every meme user who uploads, but they do pay those whose memes have been selected.

9.2 How to make money on

You can read basically anythingHerein the "Official Rules" section, but I'll give you a little shortcut anyway. names the photos and graphics you upload to them as Photoplasty and Pictofacts. There are weekly Photoplasty and Pictofacts contests where registered users can submit their entries in the respective contest forums. You can also present them with a completely new idea and get paid for it. There is no limit to the number of photoarts or pictfacts you can submit to one competition. You can give them any number.

  2. Position 2-9 protectors get $25.
  3. The person who ends up in the last position on their list will receive $50.

If blogging and mememaking still isn't a good enough job for you, I also have other online part-time job ideas for teens, college students, and schoolchildren.

This job can be a bit difficult, but it is very fun. The best thing about this online job is that you can do it on your mobile anywhere. As I said before, millions of people are attracted to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Snapchat, etc., so to promote their business and standing, many companies and celebrities have flocked to social media where they can easily communicate with a larger audience.

For this job, all you need to do is manage your Facebook or other social media account and perform activities such as uploading photos and responding to comments with the intention of increasing page likes or followers

This is an easy way to explain it if you don't want to go into more technical terms like:

  1. Reception– The total number of people who see your post.
  2. Engagement– All kinds of reactions like likes, comments, sharing, etc.
  3. Impressions– Total number of views of your post.

The right job of a social media manager can be to increase the reach, engagement and views of a post. It may look difficult, but it's not as hard as you think. You can gain basic knowledge of social media marketing or SMM online at sites likeneilpatel.comin less than a week and start practicing. Feel confident as you will gain more knowledge about this niche as you work.

8.1 Where to get a job in social media management?

It's easy. You will get this job from commercial companies or celebrities who hire people, especially to manage social media and believe me, they number in the thousands. You can even send suggestions to nearby restaurants if they want to promote their website. For me, I found an internship in this category

8.2 Easier Social Media Marketing

If you only support one account, for example only Facebook, it will be easier for you to upload posts. Your salary may be a little low, but you can always be hired by more than one company. For example, if your first company only pays you INR 3,000 or $300 for one social media account, with their permission or as per contract, you can be hired by another company and earn another INR 3,000.

The problem now comes when you manage multiple social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. All these channels of one company together, then everything can become difficult and monotonous, you will be uploading the same many times. For this purpose, there are many tools available on the Internet that allow you to share posts on all platforms with just one click. You can also schedule posts throughout the day in the morning. During the day, posts will be loaded automatically.

8.3 Some of the best-known social media management tools are:

  1. HootSuite
  2. Buffer
  3. HubSpot
  4. Community Sprout
  5. Meet Edgar

All of these interfaces allow you to post or schedule multiple posts on your social media accounts and are a big plus for marketing and productivity.

Youtube! Yes, you've heard it many times. One of the best online job offers for students or youth. How work? Because without taking your YouTube channel seriously, you won't be able to earn a penny from it. You can take inspiration from great YouTubers like PewDiePie or our beloved Indian YouTubers like Ashish Chanchlani and Bhuvan Bam. They just had an idea for a start, which they implemented, and now they make millions (counting Indian rupees, but with passion you can also make a million dollars, as PewDiePie makes).

7.1 How to start using YouTube?

First of all, you have to have an idea, it doesn't have to be humor, you can do anything. You can

  1. Give people information
  2. Do product reviews
  3. Create vlogs from your travels,
  4. Create manuals and tutorial videos,
  5. Music videos etc.

Anything, literally anything with great passion and dedication would be successful on YouTube.

The second thing you need is a YouTube channel. Creating a YouTube channel is very easy, just sign in with your Google account. Think of a good name for your channel. The next step is to upload the video and do it regularly.

Remember, a good youtuber always responds to comments under his videos and doesn't make his followers wait for the next video.

7.2 How to make money on Youtube?

Ding-dong! Via Adsense (you need to scroll up and check point 10.4 as the list is in descending order which I already explained very well above). You receive payment via PayPal. You can also do marketing to get more likes and views for your YouTube videos. How about creating a separate social media page for your YouTube channel? Sounds like a great idea.

When uploading a video, you can also include great keywords that are most searched on YouTube and what term you want your video to be recognized under.

For example,

If the name of your YouTube video is "Aloe Benefits for Skin",

As keywords, you can enter “aloe vera skin treatment”, “aloe vera application”, etc.

You can learn more about YouTube marketing and how to get more views for your YouTube video from this video.

7.3 Things you need to understand very well

There has always been a misconception that subscribers, likes and views make money on YouTube.You won't earn a penny even if your video has a million likes.The only thing that matters is ad clicks and ad impressions.To some extent, you can say yes, views earn money, but no, because YouTube viewers don't get ads with every video they watch. Your YouTube video will not always be served with an ad on the viewer's device. If you want to count that the views are making you money, you have to divide the total number of views by 5 or 6 or even more because even I can't tell you how often the ads will load, but in most cases the number is 1 in 5 views. So if we do the calculations:

10,000 impressions ≠ 10,000 ad impressions


10,000 impressions = 2,000 or 2,500 ad impressions

So count on this number to predict your income.

If you take a look at all the famous YouTubers, you will find that they all had to work a lot before they were successful. Their niches aren't much better than yours, but their consistency is. If you pay 100% on YouTube and only upload one video a week for a year, it's 100% safe to assume that you can earn thousands via YouTube in the near future.

Do you have a good mobile phone with a great camera? It doesn't look like a professional job, but it's perfectly fine for beginners. Websites likeShutterstockpay contributors monthly if the photos they click on are downloaded by Shutterstock customers. You receive royalties when any image you upload is purchased by anyone. You can set your own minimum payment threshold, which means you will be eligible for a payout whenever this amount is reached through the sale of your photos. You can visit Shutterstock today for information.

6.1 How does Shutterstock work?

Shutterstock can be one of the very fun online jobs for teens. To get started with Shutterstock, you first need to click on some really good photos and learn some photography tricks. You can click on nature, technology or photos that fit into any other category. After clicking on the photos, create your own Shutterstock account. Now, to get started, you must first become an accepted contributor. To do this, submit your top 10 photos to Shutterstock, and if several of them are selected, then viola! You are a Shutterstock contributor, feel free to upload more images. Make sure the photos you upload are high-quality and eye-catching.

6.2 How to sell my photos

At Shutterstock, you don't actually sell your photos. Imagine Shutterstock as an average broker, you get download royalties and that's it. However, you can still increase the chances of an occasional image download by using appropriate descriptions and titles. You can useGoogle Keyword Plannerto find out which keywords will work best for you. Once you've chosen your most searched keywords (search terms), use them in the title and description of your photos, and this will increase the chances of those photos appearing in search results. Once all the titles and descriptions are ready, just wait for the download.

Indian Jobs for Teenagers: It may take some time to download, you may not be able to meet the minimum payment requirement, but this is just a part time job for teens, adults or anyone with great photography skills. Shutterstock requires no investment unless you want to buy your own camera. If this job isn't right for you, you can always find another. Here are the payment methods Shutterstock uses to pay its contributors:

  • PayPal
  • Payoneer
  • Skrill
  • A bank check

If you have a good computer at home and a lot of creativity, you can also take up graphic design or photo editing. You can create your own Instagram profile and sell creations specially designed by you. Graphics in 2018 is already an interesting topic, if you can learn how to manipulate photos at a young age, you can become a great graphic designer in the future. Just creating an Instagram portfolio will attract a lot of people to your work and you will be asked about the secret of your photos, here you can offer them your services. remember thatyou don't need a high-end computer to get started with Photoshop. Any mid-range laptop with an i3 core and an average graphics card will suffice for the minimum requirements for Photoshop.

5.1 Don't know How to use Photoshop?

In my experience, as a teenager I was always fascinated by great graphic images and wallpapers, I thought I would never be able to create such images, and the thought of learning Photoshop was far beyond my mind. But at some point I started learning Photoshop. This is a very simple app to use actually, the hard work is done by your creativity, it's totally up to your choice how complex and creative you want your graphic image to be. If we look at Photoshop as an online part-time job for teens, you don't even need to design these amazing photo manipulation images like these:

Instead, you can do some simple editing work like editing texts, resizing, changing brightness or maybe adding some rendered images like in the image below:

If you want to learn Photoshop on an expert level, this is also a great idea for your future because believe me, your life will just be full of money and creativity if you become a graphic designer. For starters, you can start learning from YouTube. Some of the best YouTube channels for learning Photoshop that I recommend are:

Both of these channels teach great things and can be your longtime partner for all your graphic design needs. The work of a graphic designer is not only interesting, but also awakens your inner artist that you never knew existed.

There is no doubt that teenagers these days have great taste in music. They can be artists themselves as well as review music. Plus, having fun while making money doesn't hurt anyone. It's hard to believe, but about 12 hours of music are uploaded to SoundCloud every minute. By the time this article ends, approximately 120 hours of new music would have already been updated on SoundCloud. However, great artists get reviews for their music easily, while new emerging artists face some problems. You can earn some money yourself and help artists make money by browsing their songs online.

4.1. Where can I earn money by reviewing music?

Work that seemed impossible is now possible online for everyone. You don't need any special skills to become a music reviewer, but if you want to learn a bit about music, you'll only benefit from it. Some of the famous music browsing platforms you can visit to start this online job are:

  • Cut the cake

4.1.1 Cut the cake

The people behind this idea create hundreds of gift cards, gift boxes with some cool designs that sell for a pretty good price.

3.1. Sale of notes and study materials

Well, if you're actually not that good at making things, then maybe you're good at science? Just kidding, just go to school/college regularly and be careful when taking notes. There will always be a few students who don't come to lectures and are always busy asking for notes or homework. At first, selling your notes or study materials to someone may seem rude or weird (a matter of pride or perhaps heavenly principles), but believe me, it's not bad at all. Notes were made by you, so it's up to you whether you want to charge for them or not. If you make it very clear to your classmates that you intend to charge people for your notes, it won't matter much when you actually sell them. Of course, the only exception to this is if your school does not agree to sell its notebooks on school property.

Teaching elementary school students is the best job for teenagers right now. This is the simplest, easy and fast job to earn money. No parent will ever have a problem with their child teaching someone else. You can just sit at home and teach 2nd or 3rd grade students for little money, and even charge them more if you teach 4th through 6th grade students. By teaching other students, you too would sharpen your own mind. In the modern world, parents are usually busy managing family support, and sometimes their child's academic underachievement is neglected, resulting in low scores. You can teach such students and help them achieve higher scores by working on underdeveloped subjects.

Tutoring students is not a new activity, we have been doing it for several centuries. We people in India have always been proud of our knowledge. An intelligent person is always respected than one who has never studied any wise words. Before the advent of laptops, the internet, mobile phones, etc., teaching younger students was a job most teenagers your age did. You may want to ask an elder to confirm how proud and passionate people are about teaching. Perhaps in your life you have also seen a few students or high school students transferring knowledge to high school graduates and students of primary schools and helping them with their matura exams, or maybe you yourself were taught by such a high school graduate. All the people you remember or saw taught children how to get financial aid or just had a passion for the job, but all of them have been successful in maintaining a regular income through this job. If they can do it, so can you, take my word for it, teaching young students is one of the best part-time jobs for teenagers in India.

How to start?

Top 10 jobs for Indian teens your parents won't say no to (13)

Teaching someone else is the easiest thing to start with. You can simply spread the words you are looking for to teach elementary or senior students. A great tip for you would be to ask your parents to ask your friends in the neighborhood if they are looking for a tutor to help their children with their studies. You can also do this work yourself if the children in your neighborhood recognize you and open up to you easily. The number of students you should teach depends entirely on your capabilities. I suggest that you only accept students who are studying in the same class. For example, if you have two students in 3rd grade, it would be easier to teach those two than to teach students who are in different grades, e.g. one student in 3rd grade and one in 5th grade. Once you understand the curriculum yourself, you can teach up to four students. I don't suggest teaching more than four people, but it's really up to you. If you think you can easily teach more than four students at a time without adding to the workload or compromising their exam scores, you can do so.

If you're not sure how much to pay students for tuition, try checking your city's tuition rates online. As a student or teenager, you cannot charge your students more than professional tutors, so only charge the same amount if you are really good at studying, or less than that amount, but never more. However, if you want to earn more in this part-time job, you can add another student (if you can teach) or teach upper grade students whose curriculum is expected to be quite challenging. Tuition for 5th grader is of course supposed to earn more than tuition for 2nd grader. It was about tutoring as one of the jobs for Indian teenagers.

Starting my career myself as a teenager, I didn't start as a part-time employee, instead I worked as a full-time employee at an established IT company in my city. However, after quitting my job after a short period, I tried to earn extra money part-time from various sources. I already had some experience in my job and had little knowledge of graphic design (with simple text, move and resize tool), so I started trying. From the list above, I've tried myself:

  • Graphic design
  • Blogging
  • Youtube
  • Social media management
  • Content writing

My background in graphic design, blogging and social media management was good. I've also tried writing content that has borne the same fruit for me. The income was very decent for an independent teenager (you can party hard and go on trips with your friends, and even buy a mid-range mobile phone, saving you about 2-3 months), but obviously not on par with a true professional with a degree. However, I continued my career in content and branding.

Today, I am a content editor with a total of 6 years of experience as a content writer (4.4 years certified and 1.6 years as a freelancer) and I am very happy with my income, which is really high for someone my age.
