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?

Happiness Explained: "The Looking Glass Self" Believing is Becoming

The looking-glass self is a popular theory within the sociological field that explains the formation of self-image via reflection or based on their understanding of how others perceive them. Because people conform to how they think others think them to be, it's difficult, or arguably impossible, to act differently from how a person thinks he or she is perpetually perceived. 

Three Main Components of The Looking Glass Self
The rudiments of Cooley's sociological theory can be reduced to three facets.

  • One imagines how they appear to others.
  • One imagines the judgment that others may be making regarding that appearance.
  • One develops a self-image via their reflection; that is, the judgments or critique of others.
Next time you take a look at yourself in a mirror, try to understand that what you see in the mirror, is a result of the reactions to us that we have seen in people we spend time with.  The thing that moves people to pride or shame is not the mere mechanical reflection of themselves, but the imagined effect of this reflection upon another's mind.

How would your life change if you stop believing the negative perception others try to pin on you? We must learn to rewrite our own character. The will to change how others perceive us is vital for our happiness. You become like the 5 people you spend the most time with, please choose wisely...
