A lot has changed over the past decade when it comes to finding work, especially for teenagers. Looking for a job as a teen used to consist of driving all over town, asking to speak to managers, filling out applications and then going home to wait for the phone to ring. Now many types of jobs can be applied to with just a few simple clicks of a mouse.
The job market changes as rapidly as the Internet does; in fact it can be downright difficult to keep up with the most recent economic trends. And with competition in the employment sector at the highest it’s been in decades, it’s crucial now more than ever for teens to stay up-to-date with the latest cutting-edge methods, tips, and advice on finding work in today’s recovering job market. That’s where we come in.
Our goal is to provide students and teenage workers with as much useful information as possible so that they can make informed, educated decisions when seeking out jobs and careers. From the latest online and Internet jobs that are currently in high-demand, to guiding teens towards tried-and-true business ideas will assist them in creating their own small business success stories, we want to ensure that we are the number one resource online for helping teenagers find jobs and careers that are right for them.
Parents – We’re not just limited to helping out teens, either. It’s rather common for parents to have a thousand questions in regards to their teenager’s job search. Questions like, “What type of job is going to benefit my teen the most?” and “Can this job blossom into a career?” are valid concerns that every parent with a teenager shares once their teen’s job search begins. As a parent, you want to be sure that the work experience your teenager gains during his or her formative years will enrich s/her skill sets and will develop s/her personality and strengths. Checking our website to make sure that you’re staying current on new ideas and resources for teens looking for jobs is the best way to guarantee that you’re staying on top of your child’s search for employment.
Employers – We would also be doing this site a disservice if we left out one of the most important parties regarding teenage employment: the employers. Employers that hire teenager workers are giving teens an opportunity to prove themselves in today’s workforce, oftentimes with nothing to go on but faith and a promise from a young adult.
Employers take substantial risks by hiring teens, but there are enormous benefits to giving these young, energetic members of society a chance. We strive hard to make sure that if you’re an employer considering hiring teenage workers, that you’ll leave our portal with every question you have answered, helping you to make knowledgeable decisions for the business that you’ve worked so hard to sustain in these trying times.
The teenage workforce of today is the future of our world, which is why it’s vital for us to help them find their way. Teenagers growing up today are introduced to a working sector that is competitive, complex and ever-changing. Evolution of working groups from baby-boomers to generation Y, X and now Z needs a proper education.
We would love to hear back from you. Share your thoughts and concerns with us.
