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?

Oprah Winfrey's unexpected source of happiness

After finishing one of the most successful talk shows in daytime television, the motherhood bug has bitten Oprah Winfrey. After a visit to Africa with Nelson Mandela, Oprah invested all her time and energy in creating one of the most successful girls-only school the world have ever seen. The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy is a girls-only boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa that provides educational and leadership opportunities for academically gifted girls from impoverished backgrounds in South Africa.

I realized that the only way to create long-term improvement and empowerment, and literally change the trajectory of somebody’s life, is through education,” shared Winfrey in a recent interview with Forbes Magazine.

Education is in fact gate to freedom, but what Winfrey never expected was it will become her gate to motherhood. 'Mom Oprah' is always on call for her African graduates. 

"I am in a really, really, good space. Being able to step into the mother role has brought, unexpectedly, the greatest source of happiness in my life said Winfrey. "

"We’re texting all the time," Winfrey told ABC News’s JuJu Chang recently. "I was on the phone last night for an hour with one of them."

Oprah is moved to tears when graduate Marwiya James is presented with the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Award. 

Watch Oprah's commencement remarks and see why keynote speaker Gra├ža Machel says the graduation is a triumph for the whole country.
