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?

Meet Odie a Heroic Dog Available for Adoption at Georgia SPCA

"Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless 
he's owned a dog."
Gene Hill

Everyone knows that smaller dogs display in attitude what they lack in size, and Odie is living proof.

In a truly heartwarming story, Odie's story is quite special. He was found running loose on I-85 where a woman stopped traffic to pick him up. His pregnant girlfriend was hit by a car and Odie never left her side. She lost the puppies but survived and is now recovering in a foster home.

Odie is a very handsome 2 yrs old Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshund mix who is housebroken and ready to go to a forever home. He is a little shy at first, but if you pick him up, he snuggles right into your arms. He is going to make a terrific family pet.

Come soon to meet Odie at the Georgia SPCA shelter because I'm sure that he will not last long. His adoption fee is $250. That includes spay/neuter surgery, disease testing (dogs testing positive for heartworms are treated; however, we do not add that charge to our adoption fee), up to date vaccinations, deworming, up to date flea/tick & heartworm prevention, a 24Petwatch microchip and 30 days of ShelterCare pet insurance.”

Odie is still in medical quarantine but you can see him at the shelter and start the adoption the process.

 The Georgia SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a non-profit pet rescue organization located in Suwanee, GA.  

Their Mission is to reduce the number of healthy animals euthanized in the State of Georgia by implementing successful adoption programs,  and offering low cost  spay/neuter to the public, and by promoting responsible pet ownership.  

As a no kill organization, all animals accepted by the Georgia SPCA are placed in an adoption center or foster home until suitable homes can be found.  
Prior to adoption our pets are fully vetted, which includes updated vaccinations (including rabies), disease testing, treatment for heartworm (if necessary), flea and tick and heartworm prevention, spay or neuter, and micro-chip.  

All animals are adopted with one month of free pet insurance.  

They  are located at 1175 Hwy 23 (Buford Hwy) Suite 109 in Suwanee, Georgia and are opened 7 days a week! Their operating hours are: 

Monday - Friday 11 am - 7 pm, Saturday 11 am - 5 pm and Sunday 1 pm - 4 pm.  

You can contact Georgia SPCA by emailing them at or call at 678-765-2726.
