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.

The Gardenieres are hand-picked green thumbs led by master gardener, William Moss. They’re real-life gardening enthusiasts with real-world experience when it comes to growing, anything.

The Gardenieres will be covering the country, inspiring us all to get out and garden, facing unique growing challenges and meeting you online, in social networks and, occasionally, right in our own neighborhoods. All to make this the most remarkable, most conversational and most enjoyable growing season ever. 
Video lessons from the Gardenieres are now available for anyone who wants to tackle a garden but doesn’t know where or how to start one. My favorite Gardeniere video is “Gardeneire of the South”.


In this video Mary Katherine Greene, walks us through how to create a vegetable garden even if you do not have a lot of space. Mary Katherine sets up a backyard garden with some soil and lumber for growing tomatoes and cucumbers in a productive summer garden.

 I have been wanting to plant a vegetable garden for a long time. I want to put raised garden beds on my backyard deck (since I never ever use it...).
There are several products from Miracle-Gro® for gardening vegetables that are highly recommended. One of my favorites is the Miracle-Gro® Garden Soil for Flowers & Vegetables. This product is specially formulated for annuals, perennials, and vegetables and improves existing soil to build strong roots. Plant food is crucial for a garden, specially during winter. 

If you have a vegetable garden or are planning to plant one make sure you use the Miracle-Gro® Continuous Release Plant Food. This product can feed feed your plants and vegetables up to 3 months. Also, another great product is the Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed® since it makes feeding as easy as watering. The Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed® feeds plants through leaves and roots and is safe to use with all flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs.
