Why Summer Jobs Matter Now More Than Ever

Why Summer Jobs Matter Now More Than Ever | JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Training today’s youth for tomorrow’s jobs. Around the world, momentum is building to expand employment and education pathways for millions of low-income youth who lack access to education, training and employment opportunities. And with good reason – by 2025, 65 percent of jobs in the United States will require some postsecondary education, training or credential – up from 28 percent of jobs in the 1970s.
