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.

Gwinnett Medical Center Enters Pink Glove Contest and They Need Your Vote!

The Pink Glove Dance is an online nationwide competition to find the best Pink Glove Dance video. Hospitals, nursing homes, schools and anyone in the U.S. and Canada who wants to organize a group of people, can produce and submit their own Pink Glove Dance video. The top three winners will receive donations in their name to a breast cancer charity of their choice, such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The charity is subject to Medline’s review to ensure it falls within our compliance guidelines. The amounts of the donations are $10,000 for 1st place, $5,000 for 2nd place and $2,000 for 3rd place.

Our friends at the Gwinnett Medical Center submitted their own version and need our help getting votes. On the "Pink Glove Dance" website they posted:

"A few weeks ago we heard about this contest and wanted to try our best to enter and have this contest reflect our highest ambitions to show how badly we wanted to earn a rewards for a charitable organization. We wanted to be a part of something as big as the Pink Glove Dance and wanted to help spread the inspiration that the original video did. We strategized and planned diligently to find ways to display a professional video with the positive illustration of people coming together for such a worthy cause. The center was fortunate enough to band together friends, family and associates to donate their time to make this project happen. We think the project itself was a great undertaking with the idea of such a worthwhile cause."
