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.

Simple Salads: Grilled Peach and Avocado Salad with Goat Cheese with Fig Vinegar and Burnt Sugar Reduction

 "I really like adding grilled fruit  to my salads. I love how they caramelize nicely and melt in your mouth. Adding fruits to your salad not only makes it picture perfect but elevates the dish to a whole new level."

Liza Cardona

The ingredients for this salad are:

  • 1 head of Romaine lettuce (or your choice of greens mix)
  • 3 medium sized ripe peaches
  • 2 small avocados
  • Goat’s cheese, crumbled
  • Optional: Red onions, cherry tomatoes, toasted pecans (or hazelnuts) and bacon
For the Glaze you will need:
  •   1/3 cup of Alessi White Balsamic Fig Infused Vinegar
  •   2 Tablespoons of Blue Mountain Country Burnt Sugar

  1.  For better grilling cut the peaches in half  and remove the pits. Place them on a well-oiled cast iron grill over medium-high heat and cook for a few minutes on each side to lightly char.
  2.  Pour Fig vinegar and the 2 tablespoons or burnt sugar into a small saucepan and  bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the vinegar has reduced to 1/4 cup. Set aside, and cool to room temperature.
  3.  Rinse and dry lettuce and cut it into bite size pieces. Place in a large bowl along with peach slices and avocados, and crumbled goat cheese and drizzle with the fig and burnt sugar reduction.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
