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?

Trent University Professor launches the first issue of The International Journal of Happiness and Development

Dr. Mak Arvin, a Trent University  Professor has launched the first issue of The International Journal of Happiness and Development (IJHD)
 
IJHD is an interdisciplinary journal that seeks to broaden our understanding of 'happiness' and how it may relate to development from economic, political, psychological, and/or sociological perspectives. The journal entertains all definitions of happiness, including 'subjective well-being' or 'life satisfaction' commonly used terms in economics. It welcomes rigorous and scientific papers that provide theoretical or empirical investigations which improve our understanding of how happiness is generated and how it may relate to development interpreted at both micro and macro levels.

The IJHD reflects the development of the field and, by taking a truly inter-disciplinary approach to the subject, seeks to broaden our understanding of “happiness” and how it may relate to development from economic, political, psychological, and/or sociological perspectives. As Professor Arvin points out, happiness studies is a growing field with “many questions and unexplored areas for research.”

For Prof. Arvin, the launch of the IJHD opens the door to these types of studies and more: “I think this journal ten years from now is going to be a leading journal in the field.” Clearly others are as enthusiastic and optimistic about the journal’s potential, as evidenced by quality of submissions to the first issue, including Dr. Ruut Veenhoven, Director of the World Database of Happiness in Switzerland, and Prof. Easterlin, the “father” of the study of happiness from an economic perspective. “These contributors represent the giants in their field,” asserts Prof. Arvin. “They are the cream of the crop.”
While happiness studies are not new, in the past couple of decades the study of happiness has received more attention in a wide variety of disciplines including psychology, economics, sociology, and more.
