Category : Job Search

Sue Shellenbarger wrote a blog post for The Juggle, a WSJ Blog about the Grim Outlook For Teen Jobseekers. She writes, “With the teen job market already reeling, employment among people ages 16 to 19 this summer may fall even lower than the historic nadir of 32.5% posted in summer 2008, says Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University, Boston. That was the lowest rate in the 60-year history of government jobs data, marking a steep decline from 45% just eight years earlier.”
