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?

Summer Shows We Love: The Little Pirate Mermaid at the Center For Pupetry Arts

If you love storytelling and puppetry I have great news for you. The Center for Puppetry Arts has a brand new show that will steal your heart. The Little Pirate Mermaid, is new spin on the familiar Hans Christian Anderson/Disney fairy tale. 

Featuring over 40 handcrafted puppets, the show takes advantage of marionettes as they are a perfect medium for creating a sense of weightless, “underwater” floating. The magic continues as the story goes above the water for lots of pirate ship fun, including a naval battle, an attack by a monstrous squid and hilarious antics between the sailors and pirates. By combining a well known fable with some high seas adventure, Center for Puppetry Arts crafts a show that is completely shipshape and a thrill for boys and girls of all ages.

Our favorite part were the scenes of the old sea hag and the sea monster attacking the pirate ship. From the scenery, to the puppets, to all the different light effects The Little Pirate Mermaid is a show not to miss.
The Little Pirate Mermaid is presented in the Mainstage Theater, June 14 – July 15. Show times are as follows:
  • Tuesday – Friday*: 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
*There are no performances on Tuesday, July 3 (Museum and Workshops will be available), and the Center is closed Wednesday, July 4. 

Single show tickets include museum admission as well as the Create-A-Puppet Workshop, where kids can make their own Manta Ray Marionette Puppet.
