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?

Goodwill Find of the Week: Creative Tops Mugs



"I absolutely adore white dinnerware. I love the look and the feel of it. It makes any home-cooked meal look like it was made at a five star restaurant". 

Liza Cardona


While most people believe white dishes are boring I find then extremely appealing. Many chefs prefer white plates because white goes with anything, makes the food “pop” visually and allows for a more diverse meal presentation.
I've been collecting white dinnerware over the years. The most unique pieces have been have been found at local Goodwill's or antique shops. I have several vintage pieces that I rotate and display around the house depending on the season of the year. The good thing about white dinnerware is that it goes well with any type of decor. 

In an effort to stand by one of my new year's resolution (live simply and never beyond my means), I went to my local Goodwill store in hopes to find a dresser that I could paint for one of my kids rooms. Furniture's re-do has become a new obsession of mine but that is a completely different post ;D

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a dresser I like, however, just before I was about to leave these mugs caught my eye.

They are from Creative Tops , one of the UK's leading suppliers and manufacturers of quality design-led tableware and giftware. Creative Tops is the proud custodian for some of the UK’s foremost heritage brands including the Victoria and Albert Museum and The Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. 

Apparently, these mugs are from a previous collection since I can't seem to be able to trace them online.

I love the farmhouse feel of the mugs. They blend perfectly with my existing collection of dinnerware. I can't wait until my next brunch and use them. I think I need to buy a farmhouse to complete the look. Ha!

So what do you think? Did a score or not? Are the mugs a yayy or nayy? Let us know by posting in the comments section below.
