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?

Lemon-Honey Cornbread Muffins with Goat Cheese Frosting

Here's an easy recipe your family will enjoy.

These muffins are a yummy desset with just a handful of ingredients. The recipe is semi-home and is so easy even a kid can do it. 

Cornbread is a family tradition to many people in the South. I usually made it from scratch but since my daughter was desperate to bake something (blame it to "Cupcake Wars") I decided it was best if she just stick with a premade muffin mix. 

For this recipe you can either make the muffins from scratch or buy a box of "Krusteaz" Natural Honey Cornbread and Muffin Mix and follow the instuctions on the back of the box. My daughter made the batter, and frosted the cupcakes. She is only 10 y/o and is passionate foodie just like her mommy.

For this product you will need:

  • 2/3 milk
  • 1/3 vegetable oil (or melted butter)
  • one egg
For the "twist" you will need:

  • One lemon
  • 2 extra tablespoons of honey.

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Prepare baking pan by lightly greasing or spraying with non-stick cooking spray.

1. Place milk, oil, egg, the zest and juice of a lemon, and the 2 tablespoons of honey, and full cornbread mix in medium bowl. Stir until moistened.

2. Spoon batter into prepared pan, or scoop muffin cups, filling 2/3 full.

3. Bake as directed in the box chart or until golden brown

For the Frosting you will need:
  • 10 ounce fresh, mild chèvre (goat cheese), at room temperature
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature 
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


Beat goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon juice and zest, butter, and vanilla until smooth and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Gradually add powdered sugar and mix until combined.

Let the muffins cool at least for 30 minutes before icing them. Buen provecho!
