Uh oh… this isnt good for anybody. When jobs are cut, it hurts parents and it makes the job hunt even harder for teens.

The competition for traditional teen jobs (retail, restaurants) is going to increase as adults expand their job search so teens have to make sure that they are prepared when applying.

Teens should also get creative, and I know money is important, but think about volunteering and internships as ways of getting your foot in the door and gaining experience.

Good luck!
