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?

Bluebird Restaurant Reviews: Barrachina Restaurant San Juan, Puerto Rico

Located in the historic colonial section of San JuanPuerto Rico and just one block from the governor's mansion lies Barrachina restaurant. This restaurant specializes in creative Puerto Rican and international cuisine. Barrachina is surrounded by historic colonial buildings that are over 200 years old and has an amazing interior courtyard for outdoor dinning that delights and charm it's visitors.

Is in this exact courtyard where don Ramon Ports Mingot, first made the famous piña colada in 1963. 

According to Wikipedia, in 1963, on a trip to South America, Mr Barrachina met another popular Spaniard and bartender Mr. Ramon Portas Mingot. Don Ramon has worked with the best places in Buenos Aires and associated with 'Papillon' the most luxurious bar in Carcao and was also recognized for his cocktail recipe books. Pepe Barrachina and Don Ramon developed a great relationship. While working as the main bartender at Barrachina (a restaurant in Puerto Rico), Ramon mixed pineapple juice, coconut cream, condensed milk and ice in a blender, creating a delicious and refreshing drink, known today as the Piña Colada.

My favorite thing on the menu was the whole red Snapper with shrimp and putanesca sauce. It comes with a serving of white rice, kidney beans stew, and fried plantains or "tostones".  

What makes this dish really special is the sauce. Is rich, tangy and ohh so good. Is the perfect pairing with the fried snapper. I swear everyone on my table wanted to take it away from me. 

Another menu favorite was the mofongo with shrimp and king crab. Mofongo is basically mashed green plantains that are seasoned with garlic and spices and stuffed with anything that you like: lobster, chicken, skirt steak, seafood, vegetables, etc. A Creole Sauce is usually poured all over the top in order to add moisture to the dish. 

Chicken stir fry ordered by my sister. I didn't try this one but it looked very scrumptious. 

One of the things I loved the most about Barrachina is that every Friday and Saturday you can enjoy a Flamenco show while eating your dinner. Flamenco nights seems to be a favorite among local residents and tourists so make sure you get there early if you don't want to miss out.
