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.

I'm Dreaming of a Blue Christmas



When it comes to Christmas most people like to stay off from using non-traditional colors such as blue, pink, or purple. Besides Santa's suit is red and white? So why mess up with tradition? 
The reality is that the original St Nicholas wore a blue suit. The standardization of Santa's image was probably due to Coca-Cola artist Haddon Sundblom who (in 1931) depicted Santa as a portly, jolly grandfatherly figure with a ruddy complexion and white-fur-trimmed red coat & cap — replacing the pipe with a bottle of Coke. Thirty-five years of annual advertising by the Coca-Cola company using Sundblom's Santa solidified the contemporary image of Santa Claus (but without the Coke). It was a fortunate coincidence that the red & white colors matched those used by Coca-Cola.


So if you really want to stick with "tradition" think outside the box and decorate your home this Christmas in white and blue. Besides making your home look unique and super chic telling the story of the "Blue" Santa Claus will surely impress your guests ;D
