2017 Teen Summer Job Outlook
While the economy continues to show signs of strength, industries that traditionally cater to teen workers are scaling back, meaning opportunities for teens might appear in unusual places or later in the summer when retailers have assessed consumer demand, according to an outlook released Tuesday by global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc.
“Retail, including long-standing clothing and accessories stores, are pivoting to online sales and continue to cut in-store workers,” said John A. Challenger, chief executive officer of global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., which released its annual teen summer job outlook on Tuesday.
“Teenagers will still have many opportunities, but they will not necessarily be in traditional retail stores.”
