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.

  1. I like to try to eat organic when possible, although it's frequently more expensive than I can afford. I am able to grow some produce organically myself, so that helps.

  2. I'm really concerned about all the additives in food and have been purchasing more and more organic fruits and vegetables. Fortunately grocery stores and farmers markets are doing a great job of expanding the offerings.

  3. lately my husband and I have been wondering what all additives in foods has been doing to our bodies and health and he has been urging me to make healthier options. I must say I am starting to realize that certain ingredients give me a pounding headache.

  4. I would love to go and learn about the local organic options available in atlanta.
