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?

Runway Red & Cynthia Bailey bring out Atlanta’s youngest undiscovered talent

"Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the economic injustice that makes philanthropy necessary."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Show Me The Way Foundation is a non-profit organization aimed to educate young teens about the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Through their RED campaign they have been able to shine a light on the HIV/AIDS epidemic that is impacting the lives of the most precious among us, our children. 

With the assistance of supermodel Cynthia Bailey (RHOA), the Bailey Agency School of Fashion; and title sponsor African Pride’s Dream Kids hair care line, The Show Me the Way foundation searched for Atlanta’s newest talent on Sunday, July 1, 2012. The Runway RED model/talent call boasted talented beauties and handsome tykes from all over the city all vying for the chance to be discovered. 

The model call offered children between the ages of 5-18 the opportunity to participate in the upcoming 2012 Runway RED Celebrity Kids Fashion Show, slated for Saturday, August 11, 2012 at ZooAtlanta.  

Profits from the 2012 Runway Red: Wonderland Safari celebrity kids fashion show brings awareness to Show Me the Way Foundation’s effort towards benefit HIV/AIDS research. 2012 will mark foundation’s fourth annual fashion show.

Over 300 kids paraded in front of a panel of esteemed judges including supermodel Cynthia Bailey (The Bailey Agency), Charlene Bastien (Strength of Nature National Marketing Director/African Pride Dream Kids Hair Care) & runway coach Antoneo Lee (The Bailey Agency). 

Parents were excited at the chance to receive feedback and suggestions on getting their children into the often complicated entertainment industry.

 “I think it’s great that children have a chance to showcase their talent to people like Cynthia (Bailey) and her team” One parent said, “It gives kids a chance to support a great cause while trying to achieve their dreams.”

Children selected from the model/talent casting call will join various celebrity children for a star-studded evening at Zoo Atlanta on Saturday, August 11th.  

A big thank you to Enchanted PR for inviting us to this event. 

I was able to take  my apprentice with me and she learned a thing or two just by watching how the event unfolded.

I actually took this picture before the event. Too bad she did not wanted to participate. Maybe a modeling class would boost her confidence.
