Employers Recruit Teens for Summer Jobs

Posted: Updated:

It's no news that North Dakota's economy is still booming.

You may have noticed the many "Now Hiring" signs up around town at local businesses.

Job Service North Dakota says Burleigh and Morton County currently have nearly 3,500 job openings.

These include all areas and fields of work.

Now that it's summer, many employers are trying to recruit teens.

"A lot of it is they're running out of options because, you know, before maybe they did have an older population working for them and now that older population has gone on because of our booming economy and different jobs available so they are reaching out to the younger folks," says Phil Davis, Customer Service Area Manager, Job Service ND.

For more information on job openings in the state go to jobsnd.com.
