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.

Boy Scouts Vote To Allow Openly Gay Youth



Today, the Boy Scouts of America voted to end its ban on gay Scouts, which is a huge victory for gay youth. But gay Scout leaders – like former den leader Jennifer Tyrrell – are still banned from Scouting. It's time to keep up the pressure! GLAAD needs your help to make sure gay parents and adults are also able to participate.



The New York Times has published a comprehensive story about today's vote in the Boy Scouts, outlining the work that GLAAD has done, as well as hearing from leaders like Jennifer Tyrrell and Zach Wahls.
Glaad and other rights groups took up the cuse, enlisting celebrities like Madonna, who wore a Boy Scout uniform to an awards ceremony, and publicizing calls for change by corporate executives whose companies embrace gay and lesbian employees. Nearly two million people signed online petitions on Change.Org, calling on the Boy Scouts to end discrimination.
Speak out now!

Other Ways to Take Action

  1. Sign the petition: Boy Scouts of America: Vote to end your ban on both gay youth and adult leaders

    Jennifer Tyrrell, together with GLAAD and Scouts For Equality, is launching a new petition to urge the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to completely lift its anti-gay ban on both youth members and adult employees and volunteers.
  2. Stand up for inclusive scouting on Facebook and Twitter

    Tell your Facebook friends that you support an end to the ban on gay scouts and leaders:

    I support equality in the Boy Scouts. End the ban on gay Scouts and leaders! http://glaad.org/scouts
