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?

Room & Board Welcomes Local Authors Of The Bee Good Fairy For In Store Reading On February 9

 There is a “buzz” in the air at Room & Board!

 Sometimes it’s good to bee caught. At least, that’s what Katharine Kinney (interior designer, breast cancer survivor, single mother, and small business owner) would say.

The Bee Good Fairy began in the 1940’s with Katharine Davis Ogburn, grandmother of Katharine Kinney.  Acting as a reward to encourage good behavior, The Bee Good Fairy would come and place coins in the shoes of Kinney’s mom, aunt, and uncle overnight.  Kinney’s mom, Katharine Ogburn Suttles, then added treats to the repertoire to sweeten the pot. The Bee Good Fairy tradition is still buzzing among new generations to this day.

Katharine decided that everyone should know about this beloved tradition, and so with the blessing of her family she conceptualized, illustrated, and published a book along with a special plush Bee Good Fairy that every child can enjoy.

To implement the Bee Good Fairy tradition, all you need is 1 do-gooder, 1 pair of shoes, and 1 reward of choice.  When The Bee Good Fairy flies away, children know to put a pair of shoes outside their room in anticipation of what may come.  The Bee Good Fairy can leave many different kinds of treats and rewards, and we encourage you to be as creative and resourceful as you wish.  Timing of treat arrival can vary from a night to 2 or 3, to give The Bee Good Fairy time to find the perfect item.

The Bee Good Fairy is preparing to make a stop at the Atlanta showroom for a morning of reading, crafts and family fun on Saturday, February 9 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m..
