Youre young, ambitious and need to earn money right? Teens4Hire.org says consider a direct selling business opportunity.Youre young, ambitious and need to earn money right? Teens4Hire.org says consider a direct selling business opportunity.It's a dismal job market for teens. Unemployed young adults that need to earn money should consider one of the business opportunities offered on Teens4Hire.org.Huntington Beach, CAAugust 4, 2004 -- Face it. Its a dismal job market for some teens. This year less than four out of ten teens 16-19 will find jobs, says a teen job market study conducted this year by Northeastern University in Boston.
So whats an unemployed teen or young adult who needs money to do? According to Teens4Hire.org, a national online career center, a direct selling business opportunity is a viable way for teens and other young adults to earn money.
To help teens and young adults learn about direct selling opportunities, Teens4Hire.org has launched a recruitment campaign and devoted a section of its web site exclusively to direct selling business opportunities and education.
Our process allows us to separate employment job ads from independent contractor type of opportunities to avoid confusion, says Renee Ward, executive director of Teens4Hire.org.
So, what is direct selling?
Some companies prefer to have people sell their products and/or services direct to consumers through in-home demonstrations, parties and one-on-one or word-of-mouth selling.
A wide variety of useful products and/or services are sold in this manner. For example, nutritional supplements, house wares, cosmetics, jewelry, and telecommunications services.
Companies that have chosen to sell their products and/or services in this manner have come to be known as direct selling companies.
Rather than becoming an employee of the company and earning an hourly wage or salary, in a direct seller position, you are an Independent Contractor and not an employee of the direct selling company. As such, you become a self-employed business owner responsible for your own expenses and earn a percentage of the sales you make for the direct selling company.
Some companies even allow you to recruit other people to sell the products and/or services and you receive a percentage of all the combined sales.
Teens 18 and older can sign up to become a direct seller for one of these companies.
Start-up costs are low, like the cost of a starter kit or licensing fee, or nothing at all. You work the hours you want. And, the representative that sponsors you into the program provides training and support. In addition, many companies also provide other rewards like trips, prizes and public recognition.
Many people start part-time which is perfect for teens and other young adults who need to work around their school schedules during the year and can work full-time during the summer, breaks and holidays.
Representatives of Excel, a telecommunications company; PartyLite North America, a candle and gift company; and FreeLife, a nutritional supplement company actively recruit young adults through Teens4Hire.org.
If you can sell their products and/or services, you WILL earn money, says Ward. The companies sponsoring our educational outreach in this industry are members in good standing of the Direct Selling Association and adhere to its strict Code of Ethics.
Amy Robinson, spokesperson for the Direct Selling Association (DSA) says, Young adults are an important segment of the direct selling community. These individuals are eager to learn, and direct selling is a great choice for someone who is attending college or is a recent graduate looking for some extra income while searching for a full-time position.
We're reaching out for the young adult market because we see great potential there, says Mark Bosworth, Sr. VP Strategic Initiatives, PartyLite North America. We have a number of success stories in our company of young adults who have done very well as PartyLite Consultants.
Direct selling is big business.
More than 13.3 million people in the United States participated in direct selling in 2003.
Of the people that work in this profession;
24% have a HS Diploma/GED or less
32% have some college, or post-secondary tech or trade school
43% have a college degree or more
Sales in the U.S. have doubled in the last decade to nearly $29.5 billion and are now more than $88.4 billion worldwide.
Robinson says, Theres so much opportunity in direct selling that even corporate giants and venture capital groups are jumping into the mix. Berkshire Hathaway recently purchased its third direct selling company. Sara Lee owns five direct selling operations and Citigroup, Nestle and Unilever have direct sales divisions working in partnership with millions of independent contractors.
According to recent DSA surveys, 55 percent of Americans have purchased goods or services through direct sales. Thats more than the number who have purchased through television shopping and on-line computer services combined. People value the products and services available through direct selling and 45 percent of Americans want to buy from direct sellers.
Doug Dieter, a representative of Excel says, "It seems to me nobody is teaching today's youth about entrepreneurship or how to handle money. Gaining experience in the direct selling industry opens up a whole new way for them. They learn how to be in control of themselves and be independent. It's like gaining an education and getting paid for learning.
Robinson says, Many direct sellers learn important business skills and gain experience they may not otherwise find in a tough job market - especially one that doesn't seem to have many jobs for young adults.
