Teen Summer Job Prospects Still Bleak

Teens looking to find seasonal employment aren't likely to find landing that job is any easier this summer than it was a year ago, when teen hiring hit historic lows, a new report shows.

Lackluster improvements in the labor market, combined with cutbacks in government spending at local, state and federal levels, will make finding a summer job this year as challenging as it was in 2010, according to the latest annual teen summer outlook, released Thursday by job-services firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

"Any teen hiring gains achieved in the slowly improving private sector could be offset by losses in the public sector, where teenagers often find summer employment as camp counselors, lifeguards, office assistants, laborers and clerks," says Challenger CEO John Challenger.
