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.

Georgia SPCA 3rd Annual Benefit Bash! Viva Las Vegas!

"You Ain't Nothin' But A Pound Dog" 

              Keller was born without eyes and he runs and plays just like other puppies.                He needs eye surgery to clean and close each eye to stop future infections

 Did you know that the ‘Pound Dog’ event the Georgia SPCA held every year, helps us rescue animals (like Keller above) from Animal Control? Animals that have a lot of medical needs are put down all the time, but thanks to all our Members, Volunteers and staff we are able to bring in donations to cover the medical issues and place then into a “Fur-Ever” home. We placed over 1,000 animals last year with your help and we are needing your donations to reach that again this year. 

We would like you to join us in this awesome event this year. The cost of each ticket will be $77.00 and each dollar goes right to the Georgia SPCA. Our event will be on: August 18th, 2012 from 6pm - 11pm

Join us for a fabulous evening benefiting the Georgia SPCA! Great food, casino games, a silent auction, live entertainment featuring Cliff-E (Elvis Tribute Artist), BackFlash Premier Party Band, and Willingham, Stedman and Carter.
