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?

Aimee Copeland and The Miracle of Kindness

 "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal."

Henry Ford

Aimee Copeland, the sweet and incredibly courageous 24-year-old UGA graduate, who battled a flesh-eating infection inspired a group of generous builders and designers to create a new addition to her home, equipping it for her special needs.

What began as a beautiful time in nature with friends turned tragic when Aimee encountered an equipment malfunction while playing on a homemade zip line.  Her fall set the stage for the development of necrotizing fasciitis which led to amputations of her four limbs and the failure of her five major organs.

Aimee fought after losing parts of her four limbs to a flesh-eating bacteria, but after numerous prayers, and an incredible will to survive, she is now ready to go home and start a new chapter in her life.

"It's her "can't quit" attitude that inspired Pulte Homes to help Aimee conquer the new challenges she'll face when getting out of rehab; they built a state-of-the-art addition to Aimee's home, designed with her fighting spirit in mind."

Aimee is an absolute inspiration to everyone. Her strength, willpower and determination to live is really admirable. She's definitely a role model for those who always like to create obstacles where they don't exist.

Aimee Copeland tragedy has awaken a need of kindness in our community. All humans have a need for contribution and genuinely want to make a difference in this world. Service and generosity are great ways that kindness and compassion can be demonstrated. 

When our actions are inspired by our desire to help others without an expectation of anything in return we are blessed with an incredible sense of accomplishment and happiness.
The key to a happy life is to give back and become less focused on our immediate needs.
