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?

Ladybug a Sweet Dachshund from DREAM Dachshund Rescue is Looking for a Great Place to Call Home

DREAM Dachshund Rescue is an all-volunteer rescue group.We focus on saving dachshunds and close mixes in the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah areas. There are purebred dogs in desperate need all over Georgia -- and not just dachshunds! If you are looking for a pet to add to your home, you can search on for any breed or size of dog, cat, ferret, or horse -- all in your zipcode and in need of a loving family!

Consider Ladybug a sassy little girl, about 8 years young. She is an excellent and steadfast companion. Ladybug's dream home would be with a quiet single person or couple who lives a calm life. She would do just fine as an only dog, too -- all the more attention for her, she says!  Her previous owner suffered a stroke and became unable to care for her. Ladybug's future was uncertain, but luckily DREAM had some space and wanted to give Ladybug her chance at a great life. She is looking forward to the time that she has a home she can call her own again, and she hopes that she never has to say goodbye to that family for the rest of her life. Ladybug does have Cushing's disease, which affects her adrenal gland and is very common in dachshunds. She takes one small pill a day to control the symptoms and she is good to go. Ladybug lives with kids now, but to be honest, she would be happiest in a home with only older children who are not too loud or move around too much -- she needs her peace and quiet! 

Ladybug will go to her new home microchipped, spayed, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm tested. (She's had a dental, too!) If you are interested in adopting Ladybug, you can fill out an application right at our website! Go to Then click on Our Online Application. Ladybug's adoption fee is $200.  (All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds, and most dogs' veterinary expenses are much  greater than our adoption fees.

You can also follow DREAM on twitter (@dreamrescue) and on Facebook.  And don't forget Howl-O-Weenie, our dachshund festival on October 1, 2011!  Details at
