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?

Independent We Stand - Don’t Be A Loser – Buy Local for Valentine’s Day


"One of my resolutions this year was to live simply, keep it local and buy more made in America products. So when I recently came across with the "Independent We Stand" movement I knew I had to share it with my readers. Supporting local business and not "big box stores' not only benefits our community but is essential if we want to teach and encourage entrepreneurship among the current and future generations".

This Valentine’s Day, the average person will spend $116.21 on presents like cards, flowers, lingerie or dinner, for a total of more than $15.7 billion on gifts nationwide.


If each person spent that $116.21 at a locally owned independent business rather than in a national chain, $79 would stay in their community thanks to local payrolls and taxes. More than $10.67 billion would be reinvested in local communities throughout the country. If each person bought their gifts only at national chains instead, that reinvestment number drops to $6.7 billion.


Can you imagine the effect you would have on the local economy if you bought your honey’s Valentine’s Day gifts from locally owned flower shops, card shops, chocolate shops, etc, etc? Don’t be a loser this Valentines – buy local.
