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.

Fun and interesting people are going ‘Back to the Chatt’ on June 15


The 11th Annual Back to the Chattahoochee River Race & Festival will be held on Saturday, June 15, and promises to be bigger and better than ever. 
 


Presented by Chattahoochee Riverkeeper in partnership with the National Park Service and the city of Roswell, “Back to the Chatt” begins at 9 a.m. at Garrard Landing Park on Holcomb Bridge Road and includes competitive and recreational categories for kayaks, canoes and stand up paddle boards. 


This 8-mile course includes scenic rapids and concludes at Riverside Park, the site of the free, family-friendly festival, music and awards presentation.
 



The race is welcome to paddlers of all skill levels and ages, so at any given moment you'll see a paddler ripping through the water and others taking in the beautiful scenery of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. And of course all racers will be treated to a couple of complimentary brews from the SweetWater Beer Barge on the way to the takeout!


The free festival at Roswell’s Riverside Park, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., is a family-friendly event with live music, food, children's activities and environmental exhibitors. 


The music lineup features awesome potential interviews in headliner Jimmy Hall and Friends, with the lead singer of Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductee Wet Willie (“Keep On Smilin’”); the Women of Rock trio of Caroline Aiken, Diane Durett and Donna Hopkins; and the Music Matters “Rock U” Bands! 

Kid-friendly activities include appearances by Captain Planet and One More Generation's Bag Monster, Georgia Disc Dogs, and zombie face-painting (Professor Morte, "Atlanta's Horror Host.") Learn more about the event  activities here.
