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?

Beyond Atlanta: Tellus Museum - Where Science and Fun Comes Together

If have been hearing great things about the Tellus Museum and this past weekend we finally gave it a visit. The Tellus Museum is a 120,000 square foot museum featuring four main galleries: The Weinman Mineral Gallery, The Fossil Gallery, Science in Motion, and The Collins Family My Big Backyard.

There' also a Solar Decathlon House that was designed and built by engineering and architectural faculty and students at Georgia Tech for an international competition.


The solar house has 39 solar panels, insulated polyurethane base, and a water capture and reclamation system.

The house is designed to be self-sufficient and show how solar energy can be used to make homes energy efficient and "green."

Along with the solar panels, separate air conditioning and heating units allow residents to heat or cool only certain sections of the home.

The Tellus Museum exhibits include an 80 foot-long Apatosaurus and a replica Wright flyer, along with plenty of hands-on experiments with light, sound, and magnets. 

Dazzling gems and minerals will sparkle and glow alongside interactive exhibits demonstrating how the Earth moves and changes. 

Admission includes a fossil dig through which children can dig for real fossils and to take home as well as gem panning, where the phrase finders keepers applies. 

A 120-seat digital planetarium and an observatory is also on site and is a MUST see. Make sure you buy tixs for this one since they are not included with the admission.

Visitor Information

The museum is open seven days a week, Monday-Sunday 10 AM - 5 PM.
Closed on New Year’s Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

Please call 770-606-5700 for more information.
