College seniors and young people embarking on first jobs have a chance to learn good financial habits from the start. 

“Many young adults are entering the workforce today with the right knowledge and skills to perform their jobs at a high level but lack understanding of how to manage their personal finances,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. “By acting early and utilizing employer-sponsored benefits, young workers can take charge of their finances and begin to build retirement savings at a time in their lives when it will have the greatest impact.”

The U.S. Labor Department is holding a free webinar from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. on April 18. Click here to register. Speakers will address how to create a budget, repay student loans, think like a saver and stay out of debt, invest for the future and make the most of job-related benefits. The cast of experts comes from the Consumer Federation of America/America Saves, the National Endowment for Financial Education, and the Society for Financial Education and Professional Development.

Tomorrow: Don't forget to budget for dreams.
