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?

Tales of Edgar Allan Poe Returns To The Center of Puppetry Arts [PHOTO + VIDEO]


Poe’s tapestry of terror is chillingly realized for the puppet stage

Poe’s tortured psyche is resurrected among the ruins of a fallen house where mysterious spirits bedevil the dead and it’s always a midnight dreary. Gothic designs, haunting music, and shadowy figures breathe life into Poe’s tapestry of terror, weaving his classics The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Bells, The Black Cat, and The Cask of Amontillado with his lesser known works, Berenice, The Oval Portrait, M.S. Found in a Bottle, and Lenore.

Tales of Edgar Allan Poe is adapted by Bobby Box in collaboration with Jon Ludwig and directed by Michael Haverty.  Puppeteers Luis Hernandez, Reay Kaplan, and Rudy Roushdi bring Poe’s infamous characters to life using a unique “table-top” puppetry style, in which live actors share the stage with the puppets on a multi-planed set.  Music is performed live by Atlanta-based composer and percussionist, Klimchak, who uses unconventional and original instruments such as wine bottles, saws, and didgeridoos, to create a ghostly and tension-filled atmosphere. 

The show is recommended for ages 12 through adult and offers matinees and evening performances. Before the show, patrons may explore the Museum exhibits featuring beloved Jim Henson puppets such as Kermit the Frog, Cookie Monster, and Big Bird. During evening performances, a beer/wine cash bar is open before the show and during intermission. 




Valentine’s Day looking dreary? Bittersweet break-up? Is your love life “nevermore?” Or just looking for a different way to observe the holiday?  Come celebrate an unconventional Valentine’s Day at the Center for Puppetry Arts during our “Oh, Poe is Me!” Valentine’s Weekend, February 14th – 17th, 2013 (evening performances only). During this bitter-sweet weekend, guests may post “broken-heart valentines” for all to see, professing their various emotions for the significant others of their past, present, or future.  Also have your “Poe-trait” taken in the style of everyone’s favorite tormented novelist.  Whether you are in or out of love, this unique, tongue-in-cheek Valentine’s activity is sure to leave your heart yearning for more!   

Tales of Edgar Allan Poe runs February 12 – March 3 in the Center for Puppetry Arts’ Downstairs Theater.  Performances are Tues – Fri @ 11:00am; Thurs – Sat @ 8pm; Sun @ 5pm.
