Summer is almost here. That means teens will be out of school and looking to make money. Will summer jobs be available to them? Last year proved to be difficult with a low percentage of open summer positions. Older and more experienced job-seekers took the traditional summer jobs at malls, restaurants and movie theaters.
It is still a tough market for summer jobs, but this year should be better than the last few years, according to an outlook by Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc., a global outplacement agency.
