When I returned home from my first year of college, my mother unceremoniously looked me up & down, and said, “Cut your hair, shave & get a job!” Within 4 days, I’d done so. Finding a job was easy because I “knew people”, however, not everyone can be so lucky.

Experts say teens looking for summer employment shouldn’t wait for the end of the school year. Employers are looking to fill those temporary summer job openings now. Teens will face the biggest challenge because they have little experience and few skills, but there is good news. The economy is improving.

Managers reportedly plan to hire an average of 10% more hourly summer workers than last year. The industries that have shown the most job growth are those which offer work opportunities for younger workers, like leisure and hospitality. That being said, the time to apply is now.
