Teen Job Market

Listen
AIR DATE: May 29, 2009

Nevada's official unemployment rate sits at 10.5 percent, but economists say the state's true unemployment rate could be anywhere from 15 to 20 percent, when you add in people who have quit looking for work, returned to school, operated their own businesses or worked off the books. So what does the increased competition for entry-level jobs mean for teens seeking summer work? We talk with Cathy McCarthy, senior vice president for marketing at Snag-A-Job.com; Carol Christen, career consultant and co-author of the book: "What Color is Your Parachute for Teens?" and David Philippi, community partnership coordinator at the Clark County School District's Northwest Career and Technical Academy.
