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.

Charity Events We Love: IKEA Top Drawer! Where Furniture, Art, and Charity Collide

Top Drawer! 
Where furniture, art, and charity collide 

IKEA, The Life Improvement Store, is bringing the best students artists from from SCAD, The Art Institute of Atlanta, GA State, and ATC to design/decorate a one-of-a-kind IKEA 3-drawer TARVA dresser that will be raffled for charity.

100% of the proceeds will benefit Devereux Georgia, a non-profit organization licensed to serve children ages 8-21 who are experiencing emotional and behavioural challenges brought on by abuse, neglect, mental illness, sexual exploitation, or intellectual/developmental disabilities. 

The dressers will be showcased in the store July 20-July 30 for customers to drop their raffle tickets on their favorite art pieces. The goal is to raise $10,000+ of which 100% will benefit children in need. 

Local media personalities, professional designers and a curator will judge the dressers and the students will be recognized at the event. This will be a free yet by invitation/RSVP only cocktail event. IKEA Gift Cards will be awarded to the Top Drawer by category, values: $100 to $500.

Calling All Students Artists!!

There is no purchase necessary to participate. You must be 18 years old and a current student with valid ID. The pieces for the Top Drawer event will be selected at the discretion of the curator. If unclaimed after the raffle, dressers will become the property of Devereux Georgia. Dressers may be picked up June 20-July 12 at IKEA between 11am-8pm. Dresser requires assembly. All designed dressers must be fully assembled and functional. Product dimensions: Width: 31 1/8“, Depth: 15 3/8“, Height: 36 1/4 “. Untreated solid wood can be treated with lacquer, wax, stain or oil for a more durable surface. Completed pieces must be returned to IKEA by July 15, no exceptions.
