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.

Happiness is finding delight in the little things.

  1. Great picutres! They are a good reminder that you don't really need material things to find happiness.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Liza, Thank you so much for including me in this week!! That is such a poignant photo for my hubby and I. Our sweet Ginger had cancer and died a couple of weeks after this photo was taken. It is really very indicative of her feelings toward us and ours for her.

    Papachote's photo is beautiful. And I adore how happy both of them look in your family. It's like everything is right in their world.

  3. I'm very sorry to hear about the passing of Ginger. I remember when my previous Cocker Spaniel died it took me several months to recuperate. Only dog owners really understand how strong is the human-pet bond. I adopted 2 new dogs after the passing of "Candy" and honestly I don't know what would I do if something happen to them.
