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?

First look: New LEGO Store at Discover Mills Celebrates it's Reopening by Hosting LEGO® Creation Nation Event

The LEGO® group, one of the world’s best-known toy manufacturers, is thrilled to announce the grand reopening of the LEGO store at Discover Mills, Atlanta’s largest outlet, value retail and entertainment destination. 

To celebrate the grand reopening of the newly redesigned LEGO store, children, adults and families are invited to help participate in building a large-scale map of the United States using LEGO® bricks. 

This three day building event entitled “LEGO Creation Nation” encourages participants to use their creativity to construct a small scale model that represents their favorite city or place in the United States to be added to a large map made entirely of bricks, creating a unique and one of a kind LEGO model of the nation.
The LEGO store will now be located near The Disney Store and Gymboree Outlets and raises the bar in innovative displays, in-store family events and shopper-friendly play areas. 

“The newly redesigned LEGO store is the perfect complement to Discover Mills’ already celebrated shopping and entertainment experience,” said Karl Woodard, general manager of Discover Mills. 

”We are confident that local residents and visitors to the greater Atlanta area will revel in the fun experiences that the LEGO store brings to Discover Mills.” The new LEGO store will feature an assortment of products covering nearly every square inch of space amidst three key design components. 

The “Pick-A-Brick-Wall,” by far the most popular store feature, offers the option to hand pick and purchase specific LEGO bricks and elements in a variety of colors and shapes in bulk. The “Living Room” is an interactive play area prominently positioned in the center of the store and finally a “Brand Ribbon” runs the circumference of the store, featuring LEGO model displays, company history and fun facts to entertain guests.

In addition, other in-store features and experiences include Master Builder Bar, Monthly Mini Model Build Classes, LEGO Club Meetings, V.I.P. Program and Shop & Ship. “Our newly redesigned store at Discover Mills will enhance our consumers’ overall LEGO brand experience through product variety, store design and regular hands-on family events,” says Skip Kodak, vice president, LEGO Group. 

“Children and families will be able to experience first-hands and hands-on creativity and imagination that goes into LEGO building and be inspired by the over 4 million LEGO bricks that are in the store at any given time.”
