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?

Girl's Night Out! Happiness is attending The Last Song Premiere

I was lucky enough to win tickets from Georgia Aquarium to attend Nicholas Sparks movie premiere "The Last Song" starting Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, Kelly Preston and Liam Hemsworth. I took my hard core Miley fan daughter with me and decided to have a girl's night out. The premiere was yesterday at AMC Parkway Pointe at 7:00 pm. We got there early since we wanted to make sure we get the best seats. 

The Last Song is based on the novel by bestseller Nicholas Sparks, who has seen several of his novels turned into film (Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, and Nights in Rodanthe.) The Last Song is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (GREG KINNEAR) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenaged daughter (MILEY CYRUS), who’d rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common-music-in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances. The film is directed by Julie Anne Robinson from a screenplay by Sparks and Jeff Van Wie.

The Last Song became the first movie to be shot and set in Tybee Island. However, some scenes were shot at the Georgia Aquarium. At the premiere there was a Tybee Island representative, PR people from Star 94 and a the owner of the chapel that appears in the movie that has been turned into a wedding destination. Overall, "The Last Song" is your typical Nicholas Spark love story and tear jerker. I fond it very odd having a college girl crying on one side and my 9 y/o laughing and gushing on the other side. I was conflicted the entire movie. I didn't know if I should cry, laugh or gush so I ended doing all three haha.


Besides the story what I enjoyed the most about the movie was watching all the beautiful scenes filmed around the island. It reminded me so much of my first trip to Savannah. If you haven't been able to visit this amazing island you will after watching this movie. The Last Songs opens March 31st in a theater near you. I give this movie 3 and 3 quarters stars out of 5 for family friendliness.
