How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.

With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

But if your teen is ready to take the plunge the first thing they need to figure out is how to build a resume that stands out even if they don’t have any work experience.

But where to start? How do can you create a snapshot of your ambitions, show your strengths and interests and captive an employers attention?

Motherhood - What do you really want to say?

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... 
since the payment is pure love.”

I don't know how many of you have been been able to watch the movie "Motherhood" with Uma Thurman. I think it's a movie every woman can relate since there are so many scenes that almost appear to be autobiographical (at least to me). The movie is supposed to be a comedy or a "parody" but I was on the verge of tears watching it. You see is just that "Motherhood" is about an educated mom who decides to be a stay-at-home mom. She blogs on the side in order to keep her "identity" alive and not loose her sanity while she crumbles under the pressure of child-rearing. The main focus of this film is to teach the viewer how difficult is for stay-at-home-moms to juggle personal ambition and familial needs. However, what attracted me the most about this film is Thurman's character struggle to write a 500-word essay for a blog contest explaining what motherhood meant to her. This got me thinking too.. What does motherhood mean to me? What does it mean to you? What do we really want the world to know about motherhood? Is there anyone out there brave enough to share this?

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.  ~Rajneesh


  1. I found a quote about motherhood the other week while searching for a pic on Flickr for my blog post; it really struck a chord with me and I'm not even a mom!

    I can't remember the exact wording but it's something like "to have a child is to go walking around for the rest of your life with your heart outside of your body".
