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?

Don't miss Cinderella Della Circus: Big-top puppet fairy tale now running at The Center for Puppetry Arts

THE NEW PUPPET SHOW "Cinderella Della Circus" at the Center for Puppetry Arts is about a lovely and kind young woman from a poor background who marries the prince of her dreams. But that's about all this new story has in common with one of the world's oldest and most frequently adapted fairy tales.
The Center for Puppetry Arts invites you to step right up for a fairy tale puppet show of fantastical proportions. Playing June 16 – July 17 as part of the 2011-12 Family Series, Cinderella Della Circus will charm young and old alike with a whimsical retelling of the classic tale of Cinderella, complete with trick marionettes, circus animals, space travel, Jules Verne and a moon monster.

In this big top tale, Cinderella is a tightrope walker in P.T. Barnum’s circus who speaks only in rhyme. Featuring quirky circus friends like Oliver the elephant and Cornelia the “Zebracorn,” audiences will enjoy the splendid circus acts and amazing adventures that lead up to a surprising ending.

Cinderella Della Circus will be presented in the Mainstage Theater. Show times are as follows:

June 16-July 17, 2011: Tuesday-Friday (10 am, 12 pm); Saturday (11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm); and Sunday (1 pm, 3 pm)

See ya'll at the mainstage theater. I'll be watching this show next week with the kiddos. Included in the full-price ticket cost is admission to the Create-A-Puppet Workshop, where visitors can experience the thrill of puppetry by creating their own Oliver the Elephant Marionette or pick up a Create-A-Puppet To-Go Kit to continue the fun at home!

LUDWIG WROTE AND DIRECTED "Cinderella Della Circus," which runs April 10-June 22 at the Center for Puppetry Arts, 1404 Spring St. Tickets: 404-873-3391.
