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.

Apps We Love! "Mappiness" The App That Maps Happiness

The iPhone app "Mappiness" gathers information about when its users tend to be the happiest. According to the data, Saturday at 8 p.m. is one happy time. Reuters' Matt Cowan reports.

How does it work?

•You get mappiness from the App Store, open it, and sign up
•We beep you once (or more) a day to ask how you're feeling, and a few basic things to control for: who you're with, where you are, what you're doing (if you're outdoors, you can also take a photo)
•The data gets sent back — anonymously and securely — to our data store, along with your approximate location from the iPhone's GPS, and a noise-level measure

What's in it for you?

•Interesting information about your own happiness, which is charted inside the app — including when, where and with whom you're happiest
•The warm glow of helping increase the sum of human knowledge
