Teenagers And Jobs In 2010

By Joe Louis

Teens have been looking for summer jobs since the beginning of the year and if they haven’t found one by now, they might not be able to find one at all. The economy this year in 2010 is every bit as bad as it was last year with no end in sight.

With a bad job market such as the one we have now, teens will face a lot of rejection no matter what. They need to make sure they are going about the job hunt in the right way and that they are not making any mistakes that could cost them jobs.

Most older teens have cell phones and probably use that number as a contact number for employers. But have you ever thought about the voice mail message you have on that phone and whether it sounds professional?

Prospective employers have a lot of choices now when it comes to hiring and they don’t want to hear some silly juvenile voice message on your phone when they call it. If you have a message that is funny or really meant for your friends, you need to change that message to something more adult sounding until you get that job.

Along the same lines, you want to be using an email address that has your name in it and not one that fun or even embarrassing. You need to remember that your email address that you choose reflects on who you are and many employers will go on to the next applicant if you use an email that sounds silly or juvenile.

It is all right to have an email from a free service such as AOL or Yahoo as a lot of adults have them too. However, you shouldn’t have something like “JasonDigsSally(at)” as that will be something that will immediately turn off any employer. If a manager sees you have used an email like that for a contact, they may just move on to the next applicant who appears to be a more serious worker.

This year, as last year was, is a hard time for any teenager to find a job. You need to keep trudging on and apply at as many places you can to give yourself the best opportunity. You also need to make sure you are not making any silly mistakes like the ones described above that will hurt your chances.
