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?

What's Happy This Week: Katy Perry Becomes UNICEF Celebrity Supporter - Visits Abused And Abandoned Children in Madagascar


Katy Perry is the latest celebrity UNICEF supporter, and just returned from her life changing trip with the organization this month.

“In less than one week here in Madagascar, I went from crowded city slums to the most remote villages and my eyes were widely opened by the incredible need for a healthy life -- nutrition, sanitation, and protection against rape and abuse -- which UNICEF are stepping in to help provide,” Perry said.

Ms. Perry spent hours at the UNICEF-supported Ilaiko Child Protection centre speaking with a group of women and their children, most of whom had experienced abuse, abandonment or neglect, and were struggling to make ends meet.
The centre provides legal and social support, as well as training in basic skills, so that a young woman like Mariana can find work to support herself and her baby.

“What strikes me is how universal so many of these core problems are,” said Ms. Perry.

“Whether in Madagascar or in the USA, so many women experience the same thing. But here, clearly support can be hard to come by – that’s why it is amazing that centres like this one are here to help.”

UNICEF supports child protection interventions throughout the country, working with national authorities, medical, legal and psychological services. Right now, Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world, with most families unable to afford basic food and healthcare.
