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?

A Bucket Full of Happiness - Strawberry Season at Washington Farm is Back!!

If you never taken your family for strawberry picking you are missing a perfect "Hallmark" moment. Strawberries, often grown in royal gardens, signifies prosperity and to many the beginning of summer. 

This red and juicy gems, full of sweet and tart goodness are loaded with vitamin C, potassium, sodium and iron as well as being low in calories.

Washington farms is always our farm of choice when it comes to strawberry picking. They have two locations one in  Watkinsville and the other in Loganville, Georgia. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 8 am  to 8 pm, and they are closed on Sundays.

   Prices are quite reasonable. Pick is $10.00 per gallon bucket, pre-picked $12.00 per gallon bucket, and picking bucket is $1.00 if you keep it. You can bring containers to take the berries home.

If you are planning to take your family for strawberry picking  keep in mind the following tips:
Each strawberry "bed" generally has 2 “rows” of plants. Pick along one row and let someone else pick the other side.
   Pick only the berries that are fully red, even little and oddly shaped ones – if everybody leaves those behind, they’ll eventually go moldy and infect the bigger fruit. Keep in mind the small  berries are often most flavorful.

   Do the math and be careful not to over-purchase as strawberries quickly mold when left at room temperature, and only last a couple of days in the refrigerator. You can easily freeze berries that you can not use right away - just wash, cut the hulls off and pop them into a ziplock bag, removing as much air as possible.
