Press Release Summary: EmploymentCrossing, one of the world's largest job boards,
has launched TeenagerCrossing (www.teenagercrossing.com), a new site that caters to
the job-search needs of thousands of teen job seekers. As part of the
EmploymentCrossing job-site family, TeenagerCrossing seeks to list every job for
teenagers in the United States in one convenient location. Using proprietary
technology, TeenagerCrossing monitors job postings for teens on other job websites
and from other sources to display every job for teenagers that it can find.

Press Release Body: ''TeenagerCrossing's goal is nothing less than to show teen job
seekers every job available,'' says A. Harrison Barnes, founder and CEO of

''The recent economic turmoil and rising education costs have inspired thousands of
teenagers to become self-reliant. Students are now increasingly concerned about how
the economy is going to affect their futures. The threat of unemployment has made
more and more students hunt for internships and quality job experiences to help
enhance their resumes,'' adds Barnes.

According to recent reports by the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern
University, the nation's teen summer employment rate hit a post-World War II low in
2008, with minority and low-income teens facing the bleakest job market prospects.
The report also revealed that the employment rate for the nation's teens was only
37% in June 2008, a decline of 14.3% from June 2000 and the lowest rate ever in the
past 60 years.

''The overall job market is suffering, and teenagers are becoming more worried about
paying for school. TeenagerCrossing is the solution to all their problems. The site
aims to list all types of teen jobs, as well as to provide details on career
advancement opportunities and employment information related to a variety of
industries,'' adds Barnes.

TeenagerCrossing was launched to help teenagers sort out the opportunities that they
might not find out about otherwise. Unlike other job boards, the site focuses solely
on teen jobs, and it doesn't charge employers to post jobs.

According to Barnes, the most popular searches on the site thus far have been:

* Teen jobs
* Summer jobs
* Babysitting jobs
* Online teen jobs
* Student jobs
* Part-time jobs
* Jobs for high school students
* Volunteer jobs
* Youth jobs
* Jobs for teenagers
* Modeling jobs

''There is an astonishing number of teen job openings out there. We want to find
them all,'' Barnes says.

TeenagerCrossing charges $29.95 a month to view its job-opening research. The teen
job board also offers a free, seven-day trial to allow teen job seekers to
familiarize themselves with the service.
