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?

What's Happy This Week: GoldieBlox Breaks into Toys"R"Us to Inspire the Next Generation of Female Engineers (VIDEO)



When Debbie Sterling, a female engineer from Stanford University founded GoldieBlox, Inc., she had no idea how hard would it be to put her construction kit for girls on store shelves. 

GoldieBlox Inc., a company dedicated to build engineering toys for girls is getting a lot of attention lately for landing a deal with Toy-R-Us after launching its 30-day Kickstarter campaign. 
 

Engineers are solving some of the biggest challenges our society faces. They are critical to the world economy, earn higher salaries and have greater job security. And they are 89% male. We believe engineers can’t responsibly build our world’s future without the female perspective,” says founder and CEO Debbie Sterling. 
 

I want to expose every girl I can to engineering so my dream was to create a mass market product,” says Sterling, who created the video above to celebrate the new distribution deal. “Going into Toys ‘R’ Us is the first step.” 
 

The odds are against us. We've been told that GoldieBlox can't survive in mass stores next to Barbie. Convention says that engineering toys for girls are a "niche" for the affluent, and for the internet. Together, we must prove convention wrong.


GoldieBlox offers a much-needed female engineer role model who is smart, curious and accessible. She has the potential to get girls interested in engineering, develop their spatial skills and build self-confidence in their problem solving abilities. 



This means that GoldieBlox will nurture a generation of girls who are more confident, courageous and tech-savvy, giving them a real opportunity to contribute to the progress made by engineers in our society.
