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: Spring Cleaning Can Improve Your Happiness and Productivity


Did you know? Spring cleaning can improve your happiness and productivity. De-cluttering gives us an opportunity to start afresh, get organized,and let go of things that no longer serves you. Researchers at Princeton University Neuroscience Institute published the results from their report “Interactions of Top-Down and Bottom-Up Mechanisms in Human Visual Cortex” and concluded that physical clutter negatively affects your ability to focus and process information.

 "The first and most fundamental prediction of biased competition theory is that objects compete for neural representation in visual cortex. A large body of evidence from both single-cell physiology and neuroimaging suggests that multiple stimuli present at the same time within a neuron’s receptive field (RF) are not processed independently, but interact with each other in a mutually suppressive way. In single-cell physiology studies (Britten & Heuer, 1999; Luck, Chelazzi, Hillyard, & Desimone, 1997; Miller, Gochin, &  Gross, 1993; Recanzone, Wurtz, & Schwartz, 1997; Reynolds, Chelazzi, & Desimone, 1999; Rolls & Tovee, 1995; Snowden, Treue, Erickson, & Andersen, 1991), neural responses to a single visual stimulus presented alone in a RF were compared to the responses evoked by that stimulus when a second one was presented simultaneously within the same RF. The responses to the paired stimuli were found to be smaller thanthe sum of the responses evoked by each stimulus individually and turned out to be a weighted average of their individual responses (Reynolds et al., 1999). These suppressive interactions among multiple stimuli present simultaneously in the visual field are consistent with the idea that these stimuli are competing for representationby single neurons in visual cortex."
