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?

Easy Halloween DIY Monster Door


I have noticed a big trend on many neighborhoods. Holidays are getting getting frumpier and frumpier  every year. People are not as invested as earlier decades in decorating the outside of their homes. This lack of interest made me wonder. Are we really that busy that we can't take 10 minutes of our life to spread a little happiness?

I don't know about you but when I was I kid, I absolutely loved taking a drive around neighborhoods to look at holidays displays. You don' see that anymore. In a subdivision on more than 300 families only two houses decorated their front  yards for Halloween this year. I think is time to bring this kind of joy and happiness back to our children. They deserve to live in whimsical neighborhood full of magic, love and happy people.

Show your love for your community and  have your house ready for the holidays. Our monster door was made with leftover fabric and Scotch's halloween duct tape. Is not perfect, and it looks very "homemade" but the kids made it with love and that is all that matters. People smile when they pass the house and all the kids at the bus stop absolutely loved it. 



After we finished decorating the door and surrounding trees I have seen a lot of cars slow down to look at the house. The other day I saw someone taking pictures with their phone camera, so this "not so perfect door" is creating a lot of buzz. Let's hope people get bitten by the  decorating  bug and decide to do something creative with their front yards.

Something tells me I'm going to need a lot of candy for Halloween this year ;)
