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.

Watch: African Farmer uses the internet for the first time and helps his community to thrive

Zack Matere was able to save his dying potato crop thanks to information he found online

Information technology facilitates the flow of knowledge in modern society. Access to information and using that information to grow knowledge that benefits one's community is possibly the greatest benefit of the Internet and other technologies. Zack Matere, a farmer in Soy, Kenya, searched for a way to save his dying crops. What he discovered was a desire to help local farmers and businesses access information. 

"It is not right that as knowledge gets more and more to be online that good, hardworking, intelligent people in rural parts of Africa and the developing world are left behind as while solutions to their problems are available in the ‘air’."

"Leo pamoja’, which means ‘Together Today’ in Swahili, is my attempt to enable rural communities in the developing world access information from the internet and other sources right there at the village Market Square. A simple wooden or Metal Information Board is put up at the Square and posted on with printed out information and Pictures that are updated on a daily basis.
Men, women, the youth and children are able to communicate to other villages through an S.M.S Blackboard.

My pilot project in Likuyani District Western Kenya, I intend to put up twenty-six noticeboards in twenty villages and six primary schools and be able to reach seventy thousand people with regular digital content."
