Can't find a summer job? Create your own!


 
Finding a summer gig used to be as easy as walkin’ down to the local ice cream parlor and filling out an application. These days, however, applications are way up and the number of folks hiring teens seasonally isn’t what we’d call optimal. The result? A national teen unemployment rate of 24.2 percent, according to a recent study from the Employment Policies Institute. And that number almost doubles for black teens.


Washington, D.C., boasts the highest teen unemployment rate of 48.9 percent. Georgia, Washington State, Nevada, California and North Carolina are the top-five states with rates above 30 percent. Whoa!


So what’s a girl to do when she’s looking for a li’l dough? Try starting her own biz, of course! Check out GL’s babysitting 101 to get the goods on buffing up your summer sitting jobs. Wanna strike out on your own? Get some inspiration from our goal getters, check out our best tips from teen entrepreneurs and read our 15 ways to make major moolah this summer.


Good luck!
