ReadyJob: Helping Young Workers find Employment

Posted on December 20, 2014 at 8:10 PM

Young workers make up a disproportionate share of the unemployed. They comprise 13 percent of the labor force, but make up 26 percent of the unemployed (1). What’s more: the millennial generation currently has a savings rate of negative 2%. Compare that with the positive savings rate of about 3% for those age 35 to 44, 6% for those 45 to 54, and 13% for those 55 and older (2).


How can we help our millennial generation find steady jobs that afford the opportunity to save for the future?


At ReadyJob, a startup that offers marketing and research services to employment-related companies, we believe two of the barriers are: appropriate job training (are we properly grooming our teens for employment?) and ample job opportunities.


Below are  a list of companies who hire teens which we’re thrilled to share with you today:
