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.

What's Happy This Week: Sesame Street Welcomes New Puerto Rican Neighbor





A new neighbor is moving into Sesame Street and he’s bringing a dose of cultural diversity along with him.

The popular PBS children’s show announced that Armando, a writer played by actor Ismael Cruz Cordova, a native of Puerto Rico who holds a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and has starred in shows like "The Good Wife." Ismael  will make history this fall when he becomes the third Latino actor on "Sesame Street," and the first since 1971.

Armando will make his debut Sept. 16, when “Sesame Street” premieres its 44th season on PBS KIDS. "Mando", as he will be known to his new neighbors like Cookie Monster, Elmo, Bert and Ernie, will join Maria (played by Sonia Manzano), Luis (Emilio Delgado) and Muppets™ Rosita and Ovejita (Carmen Osbahr) as part of the show’s bilingual community.

“I am honestly still in shock,” Cordova said in a release from “Sesame Street” announcing his new role. “I am incredibly proud to be a part of a show that acknowledges and celebrates diversity so whole-heartedly and am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to represent Latino-Americans on ‘Sesame Street.’”


En hora buena!
