Outside of leisure and hospitality services, people ages 16 to 24 are also likely to be employed in the retail sector.

You'll find the biggest collection of retail stores at your local mall. Hiring spikes during the summer, as tweens and teens make the mall their de facto hangout, says Shoshana Puccia, senior marketing director for the Glendale Galleria near Los Angeles. Though the center typically employs about 3,000 people, hiring spikes from 10 percent to 25 percent as stores fill summer jobs.

"Working in (a retail store) is a great way for people to learn sales and improve their social skills," Puccia says.

From clothing retailers and sporting goods stores to the smoothie shop, there's plenty of diversity and never any shortage of ways to spend every penny of your weekly paycheck.
