Abstract

This article is a review of seminal and recent research on the effects of working during adolescence on vocational development. We examine the broad body of research on youth work, on how school or job-related training may affect the outcomes of interest, and whether job quality may affect the value of working during adolescence. We draw conclusions regarding the weight of evidence with particular focus on the implications for public and educational policy.
