Teen job market bad, but jobs are still available, Challenger says

Teenjobfair 2009 is going down as the “second worst summer job market for teens since the late 1950s,” Challenger, Gray & Christmas, the outplacement consulting firm, said today.

 

Non-seasonally adjusted figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show U.S. employment among 16 to 19-year-olds grew by 111,000 in May and 698,000 in June, for a total 809,000 jobs added this summer, Challenger said. That’s about 10,000 more than a year ago, when teen employment grew by 799,000 in May and June, Challenger said.

“For those who are still wanting a summer job, it is not too late to find one,” Chalenger said. “Some retailers may add more workers for back-to-school sales. Other employers may need to replace workers who didn’t work out. High school students may also be able to find positions in the late summer or early fall as college students return to campus.”
