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?

The Coca-Cola Company and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund 'Share Possibilities' Through Scholarship Program for Hispanic Students #CokeforEducation



$200,000 in Scholarships to be awarded to Hispanic College-Bound Students

Back-to-school is always an exciting time for students across the country. As part of this significant moment, The Coca-Cola Company and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) are coming together with key retailers to announce the launch of Share Possibilities. This annual Hispanic Heritage Month scholarship program will award $200,000 in scholarships to help close the college attainment gap among Latino students.

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to support the community and provide Hispanic families the means to achieve their educational dreams and aspirations,” said Lauventria Robinson, Vice President of Multicultural Marketing, Coca-Cola North America Group. “This program allows us to bring the community together and share moments of happiness with families across the country.”

With a long-standing relationship of more than 30 years, The Coca-Cola Company’s Share Possibilities program is designed to further support HSF in its goal of providing scholarships to our country’s best and brightest Latino students and supporting them on their path to obtaining a college degree.

“With 69% of Latino high school graduates now going directly to college, it is more important than ever for HSF to provide scholarship support to students and information about college and financial aid to parents,” said Fidel A. Vargas, President and CEO of HSF. “Our long-standing partnership with Coca-Cola continues to flourish and has played a key role in our ability to positively impact students and their families throughout America.”

The Share Possibilities program grants a total of $200,000 in scholarships to college-bound Hispanic students. Nationally, the grand prize winner will receive $20,000; four students will be awarded $10,000 and sixteen will receive $2,500. The remaining $100,000 will be awarded by the company’s retail partners, within their respective communities, across the nation.

From Sept. 1 through Dec. 15, eligible high school seniors may apply for the opportunity to win a scholarship at www.Coke-HSF.com. Applicants who meet the minimum eligibility requirements will be featured in an online gallery with social media sharing capabilities. Students are encouraged to share their profiles and gain community votes. Each eligible participating voter is automatically entered for a chance to win a $500 gift card and can vote up to five times a day.
HSF will select the scholarship recipients based on the Fund’s standard selection criteria for awarding scholarships, factoring in community votes gathered online. Final winners will be announced by May 2014.

The company’s retail partners also play a vital role in the program by funding and awarding the remaining $100,000 in their local communities. Joining in the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, these partners are helping to increase awareness about the importance of education as a means of strengthening communities and providing the brain power needed for a sustainable national economy.

  • Atlanta Retailers Association (ARA)
  • Family Dollar
  • Giant Landover in Baltimore & Washington D.C.
  • Greater Houston Restaurant Association (GHRA)
