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.

Eco-Friendly Products We Love: Harman Pellet Stoves + Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Harman Stoves. All opinions are 100% mine.

Baby is cold outside! Keeping your house warm during winter can drain the money out of your pocket.  If you are like me, that dislike wood burning heat sources let me introduce you to an excellent alternative  Harman Pellet Stoves
Harman™ is a popular heating alternative that has forged a brand of premium pellet stoves and inserts that are “Built to a standard, not a price.” Even heat, easy maintenance, advanced technology and distinctive features place these stoves in a league of their own. 

Harman stoves are freestanding and offers a traditional and charming ambience. They are available in a variety of sizes and style and are easily added to most rooms. Inserts are installed inside an existing fireplace to provide a more efficient, clean burning fire. They can be wood, pellet, or coal.

Benefits of considering a Harman Pellet Stove include:
  • Using a pellet stove to heat your home is 44% cheaper than heating with oil, 53% less than propane heat, and 47% less than electric.
  • Biomass fuels are an extremely eco-friendly product.  A great way to reduce your carbon footprint!
  • And the best news? Well, the federal tax credit on 75% efficient biomass heating appliances, which expired on Dec. 31, 2011, was reinstated on Jan. 2, 2013. The bill provides a tax credit for, among many other things, qualifying biomass-burning stoves! The extender provides a 10 percent tax credit of up to $300 on a qualifying biomass heating appliance purchased between Jan. 1, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2013!
Pellet Stoves are Awesome

Harman has some great choices for pellet stoves, both free-standing and fireplace inserts. Be sure to check out their website to see the great selection.
