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?

Toys"R"Us® Extends Free Layaway Offer, Will Pay It Forward When Layaway Orders Are Paid Off As An Act Of Kindness To Others This Holiday Season

Toys"R"Us Engages Social Media Community, Encouraging Fans and Followers to Join Company in Giving Back. 

This holiday season, Toys"R"Us is encouraging its customers to find ways to Give Back in their local communities, whether they choose to pay the balance of someone else's layaway order, make a monetary donation to Toys for Tots, or find other ways to bring joy to others.

During the 2011 holiday season, a nationwide phenomenon began when individuals started paying off the remaining balance on in-store layaway orders for someone in their community, including at Toys"R"Uslocations across the country. Taking inspiration from these stories, the company has pledged to pay it forward by Giving Back each time a generous benefactor visits one of its stores and pays off the balance of the layaway order for someone in their community. For each layaway balance paid off as an act of kindness, the company will donate $200 worth of toys – the approximate average value of a layaway order created at Toys"R"Us – to the MarineToys for Tots Foundation, up to $1 million worth of toys. 

In addition, Toys"R"Us will challenge its Facebook fans at and Twitter followers @ToysRUs to  join in Giving Back, from simply liking and retweeting posts to spread awareness for Giving Back, to sharing their acts of goodwill socially to inspire others to pay it forward. Each time someone pays off the balance of a layaway order at Toys"R"Us for someone in their community, the company will update a "Give Back Tracker" on Facebook. The "Give Back Tracker" is a map used to show where the layaway payoff took place, as well as the total amount of toys Toys"R"Us has donated to Toys for Tots as a result of this act of generosity.
