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?

Downsizing to Happiness- How a Tiny Home Gave a Struggling Family Happiness Beyond Imaginable

"Never keep up with the Joneses. Drag them down to your level. It's cheaper."   Quentin Crisp

I swear I am so OBSESSED with this video that I decided to post it and share it with my readers. Last week, I stumbled across a video of Debra's shotgun shack. Her downsizing story is one many of us can relate. We are living in one of the worst depression in the past 100 years. Yet, many us hold on to things that are dragging us down. Although living in a 320 square-feet home is not for everyone I believe there is a lesson to be learned here. 

Happiness comes from having low expectations and living in acceptance. Keeping up with the Joneses will drag you down to a path of financial misery and unhappiness. We don't need huge houses and crazy mortgages to keep us happy.

The more we own the more we struggle. We need to stop caring what other people think. Don't focus on what you don't have and learn to work with what you have. Go small but think big. Gather your family, and set goals. Remember, happiness comes from simple living.
