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?

Reflections on Gratitude

Gratitude is one of the sweet shortcuts to finding peace of mind and happiness inside. No matter what is going on outside of us, there's always something we could be grateful for.
- Barry Neil Kaufman

Today I'm grateful to be able to connect with one of the best non-profit organizations in Atlanta, Camp Sunshine. You can tell a lot about an organization by their employees and volunteers. If you have never been to one of their events I can assure you is like stepping in a happiness cloud. You can feel the passion and the commitment of everyone involved. Camp Sunshine is 100% dedicated to enrich the lives of Georgia’s children with cancer and their families through recreational, educational and support programs. 

Camp Sunshine relies heavily on donations and fundraisers to operate since all of their programs are free of charge. They have a spring camp coming up and they are in dire need of gift cards, ipads, ipods, hand sanitizer, solo cups, plastic utensils, small paper plates and bowls, fun kids stickers, trash bags, paper towels, anti-bacterial wipes, acrylic craft paint, napkins and so much more. Please visit their wish list if you think you can donate some of these items.

I strongly encourage you to visit their website to learn more about their programs and volunteering opportunities. 

Shout out to Lindsey Monroe, Camp Sunshine PR coordinator. Our family is humbled and grateful for your invitation to participate in the The Wizard of Oz fundraiser at the Alliance Theater. It seems to me like the turnout was very good so props to all the people who worked hard to make this possible.
