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?

Be Beautiful, Be You - Lizzie Velasquez Fights Cyberbullying with Passion and Purpose

 Born with a rare medical syndrome, young woman shows how to overcome obstacles

Cyberbullies called Lizzie Velasquez "The World's Ugliest Woman" with a video that received more than four million views and sparked thousands of comments, many of them hate-filled.  After years of enduring insensitive remarks and bullying because of her appearance, Lizzie Velasquez came to a turning point during high school and decided to fight back on her own terms. Her new book, Be Beautiful, Be You (Liguori Publications, August  2012) shares the wisdom she discovered – and what every young person needs to find out – about accepting and making the most of one's life.

Velasquez has a rare genetic disorder, thought to be a form of neonatal progeroid syndrome, which prevents her body from gaining weight. She has never weighed more than 60 pounds and deals daily with rude stares, the whispers of strangers, and outright bullying. Although Lizzie felt overwhelmed with anger from being bullied, she realized that holding on to these negative feelings wouldn't allow her to move on with her life. She knew she had to forgive those who had hurt her. "I decided that, rather than sink to their level, I'd fight the video with my accomplishments," she wrote.  

In Be Beautiful, Be You Velasquez tells her story and offers advice for young teens about finding their purpose in life and building self-esteem. With anecdotes and thoughtful exercises, she shows readers how to honestly take stock of their unique abilities, make and keep good friends, deal with disappointments and negativity, talk to God in their own words, and set realistic goals. 

The book's core themes, to love yourself and focus on your passions, will resonate with anyone who has ever felt singled out, misunderstood, or afraid.

In Be Beautiful, Be You, Lizzie uses anecdotes and exercises to teach readers to recognize their own unique gifts and blessings, talk to God in their own words, deal with disappointment, make and maintain healthy friendships, and set realistic goals.

In a world filled with airbrushed celebrity photos and plastic surgery, Lizzie Velasquez is a refreshing force of nature whose story will inspire anyone who has ever felt singled out, misunderstood, or afraid and who hasn't?
