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?

Julia Child Recipe For Happiness - True Story!

Master chef Julia Child steadfastly clung to some ideas. She didn't mind the microwave; it sometimes comes in handy. But try to cut corners with butter, and she wouldn't stand for it. "If you're afraid of butter, as many people are nowadays," she said in one of her last television shows, "just put in cream!" she proclaimed, with a twinkle in her eye.

Julia Child worried that the "nutrition police" will kill gastronomy.
Child, 82, the first lady of the American table, was asked by James Villas in an article in the current issue of Town & Country, about what she calls the "nutrition police" and she replied:

"That's one of my favorite topics. The health fanatics and dozens of dietbook authors and obsessed nutritionists would have us believe we're all doomed by what we eat, and if these scareheads succeed in taking over, they're going to kill gastronomy."

Child agrees with the revised upside down nutrition pyramid that advocates more fruit and vegetables and less fats and dairy products, but she favors moderation. 

"Nobody needs a fat 16-ounce steak," she said, "but when the nutrition police recommend steak no bigger than a pack of cards -well, I think that's silly. A lot of crazy things are being advocated by a lot of crazy, uninformed people, and what we really need is some sort of truth squad, a hot line that people could call to get really valid, official information about calories and fats and MSG and all that."

Meanwhile, Child deplores all the junk food and prepared food Americans consume. But she occasionally gives in and has a Quarter Pounder with cheese at McDonald's.
When asked the real secret to her success, happiness and longevity Child summed it up simply: "Beef and gin."

Gotta love Julia!!
