How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

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.

Fundraisers We Love: Northwestern Mutual Foundation Share Unstoppable Happiness Campaign!




A child's inspirational artwork for a holiday card will drive awareness, donations and hope in the fight against childhood cancer as the centerpiece of a new digital holiday campaign launching today by Northwestern Mutual. The campaign, Share Unstoppable Happiness!, aims to raise up to $25,000 by Dec. 30 for Northwestern Mutual's Childhood Cancer Program nonprofit partners, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and Starlight Children's Foundation.

"Unstoppable happiness is happiness that never ends all of your life," said Addison, the courageous eight-year-old from Broomfield, Colo., fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) who created the holiday card for the campaign. "I would be happy if cancer went away forever because then no one would have to go through what I'm going through."


Unstoppable Happiness Holiday Card

For each "share" this digital card receives, the Northwestern Mutual Foundation will donate $1 to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation and Starlight Children's Foundation. The nonprofit organizations are signature partners of Northwestern Mutual's Childhood Cancer Program, a multi-year commitment to accelerate a cure for childhood cancer and to support families battling the disease.

Share the card at facebook.com/northwesternmutual and help us beat childhood cancer!
