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?

"Weekend at Gilmer County, Georgia's Apple Capital"

This past weekend we headed off to Ellijay, GA. The city holds an annual Apple Festival and Gilmer County is known as the 'Apple Capital of Georgia'. The Apple Festival is held on Saturday, October 09, 2010- 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday, October 10, 2010- 9:00am - 5:00pm, Saturday, October 16, 2010- 9:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday, October 17, 2010- 9:00am - 5:00pm at Ellijay Lions Club Fairgrounds. I have to say that if you are planning a visit you must take Hwy 52 (also known as the "Apple Alley") and visit the local orchards and farm stands to buy fresh crisp Georgia apples.


I HIGHLY recommend to buy a gallon of apple cider, apple donuts and those delicious apple pies you see in every orchard. They are simple AMAZING. It's truly a magnificent road trip. There is also many antique shops around Ellijay that are worth the visit. I stopped at Mountainside Antiques on our way back and found a great antique to take home.



  1. Very cool! We are headed to Ellijay today.

  2. We're going tomorrow. Glad to hear it's worth the trip!
