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?

Random Acts Of Kindness We Love: Sunshine on a Ranney Day Emily Bowman's Room Makeover

In an unbelievable random act of kindness, Sunshine on a Ranney Day, a non-profit whose mission is to create safe, fun and uplifting dream-room makeovers for children with long-term illness, recently renovated the Bowman home to accommodate Emily, a Kennesaw State University, that spent three weeks in a coma after she was critically injured in February after police said a drunk driver ran her over in Athens, GA. She is unable to speak and is confined to a wheelchair as a result of the accident. 

Sunshine on a Ranney Day and its wonderful group of volunteers and sponsors help build a wheelchair accessible ramp leading to the front door of the home, change a half bath and linen closet into a wheelchair accessible bathroom, installed an ADA accessible shower on the ground floor with plumbing assistance provided by Mr. Plumber and transformed an adjoining living room and dining room into adjoining bedrooms for Emily and her mother. 

Our friends at Here On Earth Photography had the opportunity to be selected as the volunteer photographer to take the "after" photos for Emily Bowman's homecoming on June 27th. The photos speak for themselves. Emily's new room is colorful, bright & happy, and most important ADA accessible.
