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.

Atlanta Fair Returns to Turner Field - Giveaway

"Who doesn’t love the fair? There's something nostalgic and comforting about them. From thrill rides, petting zoos to snow cones, turkey legs and funnel cakes the fair is where the folks gather round to be happy and spend their day. Fairs are full of tradition and family fun, but best of all is the only place where it's okay to laugh, scream and cry at the same time. The fair not only help us revive childhood memories but is one of those places where laughter becomes a healing balm of the soul."
Liza Cardona

The annual Atlanta Fair returns to Turner Field this week with new attractions, activities and fun for the whole family. Beginning March 8 and running nightly through April 8, visitors can delight in fair favorites, test their strength at the Hi-Striker and check out all of the pageants and programs that the fair has to offer. 

 Each weekend, wild critters will be making an appearance from the Ellijay’s Wilderness Animal Sanctuary exhibit in North Georgia. 

Popular kid-friendly rides such as the beloved carousel and Mardi Gras Glass house will be returning, while thrill seekers can experience the “Ring of Fire,” a new feature that will loop its riders upside down over 45 feet in the air.

For over 25 years, the fair has brought classic Midway entertainment to Atlantans and is thrilled to announce this year’s diverse calendar of events.
