Summer Jobs for Teens

My mentor Mike Patterson shared a good idea over lunch with me a couple weeks ago and it became more acute in my mind as I talk to my friends who are looking for summer jobs. Predictably, most people end up working for their parents (you know, file papers, answer the phone, etc). But the thing is no parent really wants to hire their kid because they want young Johnny to get the experience of working for someone else in an environment that more accurately mirrors, well, real work. Why isn’t there a database of parents and their kids so people can swap? I.e. I’ll hire your kid if you hire mine. Seems like a nice little service Monster could offer without much effort.
