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?

Countdown to Christmas: One-Of-A-Kind Christmas Morning Breakfast Recipes For the Foodie In You

1. Scrambled Eggs with Creme Fraiche and Caviar in Eggshell Cups: Prepare this special egg dish for an elegant and delicious breakfast. 

2. Silver-Dollar Pear Pancakes: I love this Martha Stewart recipe. The maple syrup keeps the pears from browning before cooking; it also adds flavor and creates a light glaze. This recipe can easily be halved. 

3. Slow Cooker Pecan Bread Pudding: 
Who knew that you could make bread pudding in a slow cooker? Cinnamon bread covered with vanilla custard and topped with pecans. Serve with whipped cream. Perfect for breakfast or dessert.

4. Holiday Breakfast Wreath Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan of The Kitchn shares her story of making a Christmas breakfast wreath, an ongoing tradition in her family.

5. Æbleskiver: (Danish meaning pple slices (singular: æbleskive)) are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. Somewhat similar in texture to American pancakes crossed with a popover, æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover.

6. Lobster Scambled Eggs: This lobster scrambled eggs recipe comes from Chef David Burke, whose whimsical and dramatic take on modern American cuisine drew us to SoHo's David Burke Kitchen, his newest venture. The key to this dish is using the best eggs you can find, free-range and fresh from the coop if possible (scope out the egg scene at your local farmers market). Very ripe summer tomatoes will also work wonders. Do that lobster justice.  

7. Polenta French ToastFried wedges of polenta get their nuanced sweetness and spice from orange zest, cinnamon, and pure maple syrup. 

8. Souffled Frittata with Leeks, Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese: The secret of this frittata is to beat egg whites to stiff peaks. The result is absolutely amazing. 

9. Buñuelos de Rodilla (Mexican Christmas Fritters) Buñuelo dough is simple, but the process is labor intensive, even when one replaces hand stretching over a bended knee with a rolling pin. A mixture of flour, lard, and eggs is moistened with anise liqueur-scented sugar water (once upon a time, this water was infused with tomatillo husks, which provided a leavening agent—today many recipes rely on chemical leaveners) then kneaded for up to 15 minutes. After a resting period, the dough is shaped into wafer-thin rounds and allowed to rest once again. This second rest dries out the dough and guarantees a crisp buñuelo.

10. Jamie Oliver Black Forest Affogato: Instead of serving regular coffee why don't you serve an affogato. This coffee comes with cherries, vanilla ice cream and chocolate. This sweet treat will turn you breakfast from ordinary to extraordinary. 

This delicious recipe for lemon-ricotta poppy seed pancakes is an interesting twist on breakfast and is courtesy of Joan Nathan's "The New American Cooking."

12. Blue Grits Souffle:  If you like cheese grits, you’re going to love cheese grits soufflé. The soufflé is both airy and chewy and the blue cheese gives the dish a pleasant, tangy flavor. This is a perfect side dish for the holidays and can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 

13. Venezuelan Chocolate Pancakes: 

Chocolate Maple Syrup Makes For Sweet Brunch Food. This Recipe Indulgent And Naughty. Feel Free To Add Blueberries, Nuts, And Sultanas If The Fancy Takes You. The Syrup Can Be Made Days Or Even Weeks In Advance. 

14. Red Grapefruit with Bruleed Meringue:The meringue in this dessert is made with brown sugar, the classic topping for broiled grapefruit.

15. Scrambled Eggs, Avocado, and Smoked Salmon on Toast This open-face sandwich makes a great meal or snack morning, noon, or night.


  1. this is just ridiculous and should NOT be allowed! wow... wowowow.... the affogato, the caviar eggs, the choco pancakes! Dios mio!

  2. Wow!!! Amazing! You had me at Lobster Scrambled Eggs!!!

  3. this is a great recap... I do not eat breakfast on Xmas morning because for the last 10 years I have gone on a spiritual retreat from Dec 25-Jan 1 where we fast for 7 days... so I only have juice on Xmas morning now.

    But something I would add to your list if I were to have breakfast, are CREPES. Delicious fruit-filled crepes would be my preferred breakfast choice...
