'Time for Kids' Launches Free Digital Job Platform

Time for Kids, an educational publication launched by Time magazine in 1995, is offering a free digital job platform for 8-to-14 year-olds: Your Hot Job.

“Our mission is to show children their options for the future and to encourage them to pursue jobs that reflect both their interests and their skills,” states Time for Kids editor in chief Andrea Delbanco. “We are excited to show kids that there are many different paths to success and options for their future careers.” 

The Your Hot Job platform invites young people to explore the path toward meaningful work, with a focus on how kids can achieve their dream careers.

Also featured are resources for educators, including standards-aligned lesson plans and worksheets, designed to engage students in productive discussions about careers. And the platform provides a guide for families.

TIME for Kids team also recruited a group of notable individuals to share their career stories and inspire kids on the Your Hot Job platform, including:

  • Micah Johnson, NFT artist and former professional baseball player 
  • José Andrés, chef
  • Cady Coleman, astronaut 
  • Gil Bransford, ESPN sports statistician
  • Mitu Khandaker, game designer and developer 
  • Domingo Morales, composting entrepreneur 
  • Forrest Galante, adventurer and television personality



“We often see the success of someone but rarely do we get to see the journey to get there,” says Micah Johnson. “I love that Your Hot Job can show kids from all walks of life an attainable path towards their dreams.”
