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?

Hope is in your hands! Support charter schools amendment one

The statistics speak for themselves. Georgia's high school graduation rate has fallen to 67.4 percent based on a new federally mandated calculation. Nearly a third of all Georgia students fail to finish high school in four years. 

During the 2010–11 school year, Georgia had 162 charter schools in operation serving 56 districts. Many of Georgia’s charter schools and charter school students were recognized for excellence in the 2010–2011 school year

Ivy Preparatory Academy, a school that was rejected this year by the Gwinnett County Board of Education and was later approved for a two-year state charter, met or exceed, the state standards on the 2011 Criterion-Referenced Competency Test. Black students at Ivy Prep outscored their counterparts in local traditional schools 93 percent to 79 percent. For Hispanic students, it was 88 percent to 80 percent. For Asian students, it was 97 percent to 81 percent.

Earlier this year, Ivy Prep at Gwinnett announced that 100% of 6th grade scholars met or exceeded standards on the Reading section of the 2012 CRCT. The results continue to validate Ivy Prep’s approach to English Excellence, as scholars receive two hours of reading and writing instruction daily.

One of the most powerful variables on happiness is social trust, quality of work, and freedom of choice. Voting YES on Amendment 1, or HR 1162 not only put social trust back to our school system, but gives parents the freedom to say no to underperforming public schools,  and say yes to schools with high student engagement and highly effective teachers in every classroom. 

Amendment 1, will allow for once a happy school atmosphere among Georgia's charter school students. In addition, parents will be able to offer their kids unique educational opportunities and have full control over their child's education.

On November 6, The official ballot text will read:
Provides for improving student achievement and pa rental involvement through more public charter school options.
House Resolution No. 1162 Ga. L. 2012, p. 1364

Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended to allow state or local approval of public charter schools upon the request of local communities?

( ) YES
( ) NO
Please VOTE YES!
