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.

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?

2. Pursuit of happiness is OK but too much can backfire:
According to June Gruber of Yale University, who has co-authored the research along with Iris Mauss of the University of Denver and Maya Tamir of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, being happy is good but pursuing happiness too much can backfire. Is not that the tools often suggested for making yourself happy aren’t necessarily bad for you — like taking time every day to think about things you are happy about or grateful for, or setting up situations that are likely to make you happy.
Is just that you need to understand that after watching a happy film, or reading an article that praises happiness you can end up feeling much worse than when you started, mainly because you might not feel any happier aft…
