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?

Food Lovers Taste the Happiness at Taste of Atlanta

Taste of Atlanta is a annual event that bring the Atlanta community together for a 3-day food extravaganza. Over 80 Atlanta eateries gathered up in Tech Square to share local favorites with thousands of food lovers.

Throughout the weekend food lovers flocked the streets around tech square to enjoy an extensive selection of the best in food, wine, beer and cocktails – along with engaging chef demos, book author's presentations, specialty food-and-beverage tents and other family-friendly activities.

Taste of Atlanta, now in it's eleven season, attracted celebrity chefs, wine pros, restaurateurs, and hundreds of foodies from cities all over the United States.

The festival offered something for every type of visitor. The Family Food Zone had a cooking stage for educational demos and cooking lessons from national and local chefs in an interactive environment designed to entertain and inform.

We had the pleasure to watch our friend Jennifer Harris and Chef Christophe Holmes from FIGO Pasta, do a gluten-free cooking demo. Jennifer is a writer, consultant and product specialist that lives a gluten-free lifestyle. Jennifer shared her experience about living a gluten-free life and answered questions regarding symptoms of gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease. She also explained to the crowd what are the steps a person needs to take in order to get diagnosed with gluten sensitivity or Celiac disease.

The VIP tasting tents offered an amazing wine + beer + cocktail experience. The best part of the VIP tents was that visitors had the opportunity to feast on amazing samples from a selection of exclusive restaurants not found in the main festival. Personally, the VIP tasting tent was one of my favorites things at the festival.

In terms of my personal favorites I have to give it to “Mi Cocina” restaurant. The brisket tacos were to die for. The same thing for their ceviche and although I personally didn't have the opportunity to taste the nachos, I heard they were incredibly good. Mi Cocina will open it's first location in Atlanta on November 2012. I am predicting this restaurant will take the crown as the best tex-mex restaurant in Atlanta. Mi Cocina is the real deal. The flavors are amazing and incredible complex and the serving portions are huge. Mi Cocina is the new “Taqueria Oxaquena” and that is a HUGE compliment coming from me.

I terms of desserts I personally loved the burnt sugar ice cream from High Road Craft Ice Cream & Sorbet and the warm apple pudding from Gordon Biersch. I swear I can still taste it. So, so good!!! 

As you can't see in the last picture Audrey really loved the red velvet cheesecake pops. I swear she couldn't stop smiling and was beaming with happiness and she chow it down.

The Burnt Sugar Ice Cream from High Road is one of those things you need to try before you die. Is heaven in a scoop!
The warm apple pudding with caramel sauce served by Gordon Biersch was a crowd's favorite
