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?

Regional Eats: Chef Mobil Restaurant - Aguada, Puerto Rico

It feels like years since my last visit to the land of the great valiant and the noble lords. Puerto Rico, or the "Island of Enchantment" is notoriously known for it's diverse cuisine which has its roots in the cooking traditions and practices of Europe (Spain), Africa and the “TaĆ­nos” Indians.

Many people believe Puerto Rico is the home of the food truck phenomenon, since they have been around for decades, and have become a culinary staple among local residents.

During my visit to Ramey Air Force Base in Aguadilla, my brother knowing I am a hardcore foodie, took me to Chef Mobil Restaurant, a food truck located at the Carrizal “barrio” in Aguada, PR. This food truck specializes in authentic Puerto Rican cuisine.

I ordered the most traditional thing on the menu, mofongo, broth, and “chicharrones de pollo” or deep fried chicken. Mofongo, the signature dish of Puerto Rico, is an extremely tasty and filling dish made with fried plantains that are later mashed with garlic and shaped into a ball. If you ever come to Puerto Rico you must NOT leave without trying one.

We also ordered "Asopao de Pollo" which is our version of chicken and rice stew. This soup was served with a thicker cut plantains for dipping in the broth. The "Asopao de Pollo" is almost like a a cross between soup and a paella. This "soup" is a favorite rainy day comfort food among my family members. My grandmother always takes pride on her "asopao", and she always say that's says her "asopao" has the fantastic ability to resurrect the dead.

"Carne frita" or fried pork chunks was my grandfather favorite thing to eat. This simple yet incredulous delicious dish is deep fried until crispy tender and is usually served with Puerto Rican sauce (mayo, ketchup and garlic) or a garlic mojito.

If  you ever visit the northwest corner which is home to some of the greatest surf beach on the island make sure you stop by this tiny food truck. It will not only leave you incredibly satisfied but will leave you wanting for more.


  1. Words can't express how much I love Puerto Rico, Puerto Rican food, and food trucks! Wepa! Great post, I'll have to try them on a return visit.
