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.

#ExpATL Parent Bloggers Experience Atlanta’s Top Attractions February 9

Social media marketing is taking off in 2013 as one of the top marketing tactics. Understanding the powerful influence of the blogging phenomenon, and the unstoppable rise of mommy bloggers, the Attractions Task Force of the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB) hosted the second annual Experience Atlanta Parent Blogger event on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at CNN Center.

This interactive, trade show-style event allowed parent bloggers from across the nation and their families to learn more about Atlanta’s family-friendly attractions and activities. 

Venues and marketing companies are embracing change from viral marketing to sharable marketing strategies, by building relationships with key influencers in their  niche, and reward them for influencing their consumers  from sharing their own experiences.


In 2011,  NetProspex, a sales and marketing database company, named Atlanta one of the 13 most social media savvy cities in the US, while Men’s Health  ranked Atlanta as the second “most socially networked city” in the U.S., just behind Washington, D.C.



Participating venues at the 2013 Parent blogger event included: ACVB, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta History Center, Center for Puppetry Arts, The Children’s Museum, Georgia Aquarium, Hard Rock Café, Inside CNN Studio Tour, LEGOLAND Discovery Center, Sheraton Atlanta, Stone Mountain Park, World of Coca-Cola, and Zoo Atlanta.
