Is it harder to find a job as a teen or an adult?

as a teen myself I say its harder because you need to be "18 or older" for most places and there are hardly any job postings for anybody younger than 18. For adults, I see tons of jobs, the only reason I think that alot of them claim they can't find a job is because they dont want that. I say just take it for now until you find a new one, because I know you have bills to pay and things of that sort.

I have a hard time finding a job because I'm not experienced enough in my field of knowledge. I need to find more entry level jobs or internships like I've had through high school and college.

I say the best place to search is www.snagajob.com I found a company there that acually takes people under 18 which is great. The site tells you all the qualifications you need and everything you need to know about the job.

I think it was harder finding a job as a teen because no one believes that you'll be just as much of a hard worker as an adult. Any in many cases, they're right. Now as an adult, I hated when I had to work with teenagers in the retail world. I'm glad to be back in an office now. As an adult, there have been times when I didn't take a low paying job and went for a long period of unemployment. Sometimes it can look bad to have several jobs that you quit quickly, and I wanted to try my hardest to pick a job I could stick with for at least a couple years. Hopefully I'll be at my current job for at least a few years.

I say as an adult, because when you are young, you can work anywhere, as an adult it gets harder because you have more bills to pay.Like me i want to find a job in the music business, but i cant right now, because i need my job to pay all my bills.

It's hard to find a good paying job as an adult.
