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.

Kids Craft of the Week





Easy Styrofoam Bluebird




Today's craft is courtesy of Kids Craft Weekly

This pensive little bluebird is even simpler to make than it looks. Once kids get the hang of using a skewer to make holes in the polystyrene they will happily come up with their own exotic bird species!

You will need

• two small polystyrene balls
• wooden skewer
• kid's pvc glue
• acrylic paint and brush
• match sticks
• scissors
• googly eyes
• four feathers

1. Paint the polystyrene balls. I have found that this is easiest if you skewer the balls first.



2. Attach head and body using half a matchstick and a spot of glue. Then stick matchstick legs into the body.



3. Use a skewer to make holes for two wings, a tail and a feather on the top of the head. Then stick in the feathers.



4. Glue on googly eyes and use half a match stick as a beak.
