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?

10 Killer Burger Recipes You Need To Try Before You Die

Bobby Flay makes this extremely good barbecue sauce by spiking tomato puree with two forms of smoky chile—ancho chile powder and chipotle in adobo sauce—then adding peanut butter for sweetness. The sauce takes some time to prepare, but by doubling the recipe, it can be made in one large batch and kept in the refrigerator for up to  two months.

Prolific cookbook author James McNair has been chief judge of Sutter Home Winery's burger cook-off since it began in Napa in 1990. One of his books, Build a Better Burger, includes every winning recipe. Some past winners—and McNair's Louisiana roots—inspired the burger here.


Minetta Tavern has become known for its spectacular hamburgers. The restaurant's namesake burger is made with a blend of beef short rib and brisket from the nearly century-old local purveyor Pat La Frieda. 

Rub these burgers with a Louisiana-inspired spice rub for flavor, then tops with ham, extra cheese, a spicy mayo and crunchy potato chips.


Chicken broth, mushroom, and red wine is what makes this burger from ordinary to extraordinary. Serve it with Kaiser Rolls and be the envy of the neighborhood. 

A Pulp Fiction–inspired pineapple cheeseburger. 

These tangy burgers with pineapple rings, teriyaki sauce, and a spicy cilantro mayo are clearly Hawaiian-inspired, but that’s not where they get their name. Instead “The Big Kahuna” is what you’ll be known as after whipping up a batch of these for your guests. 

Here's a great twist to a one of the south's favorite dip, Pimento cheese. This great recipe comes from "Mississippi Kitchen". 

 Instead of using the pimento cheese as a dip, stuff burgers with it. Once cooked your burgers will burst open and ooze cheesy white lava. Yum!

If you love chile con queso, sink your teeth into this cheesy gooey burger for a real taste explosion.

 Have a napkin and some tortilla chips ready to catch  what your mouth misses because will want to eat every bite. 


This is a version of a Texas classic. This burger is moist, flavorful and stays together well when grilling. The secret is in the chopped bacon that you incorporate in the patty. 

A traditional Cuban sandwich is the inspiration for this burger. Turning this Cuban specialty into an American one isn't hard — just replace the roasted pork with a good old hamburger.
