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 In The Kids Lunch Box Today? Pizza Bianca

Flat bread has become my new best friend when it comes to school lunches.  It allows me to make a homemade pizza in the same amount of time it takes me to do a regular sandwich. Today we are sending pizza bianca (white pizza) to school. I absolutely adore this. It tastes sooo good. All you have to do is spread some ricotta cheese (fat free or reduced fat) on the flat bread, add low fat mozzarella cheese and shaved Parmesan, and add your favorite toppings. Some people like to add minced garlic, or a little or oregano on top. There are several ways to melt the cheese. You can either put the flatbread pizza in the oven or you can put it on a non-stick skillet, and put a lid so the steam can melt the cheese. This is the type of recipe that literally takes 5 minutes from start to finish. Another variation of the pizza that I absolutely love is adding prosciutto, figs, and honey. Sounds crazy but it's actually delicious. Great lunch for fall! 

My 11y/o likes to add turkey pepperoni, or crumbled sausage, while my daughter loves adding spinach, red onions and sun-dried tomatoes. So there you have it. This is "fast food" done right.
