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.

Morningside Mile & Block Party Returns to Benefit Atlanta’s Oldest Fire Station

Doc Chey’s celebrates 16th anniversary during National Fire Prevention Month with Atlanta’s only 1-mile race, noodle eating contest and other family-friendly festivities

Doc Chey’s is pleased to announce the return of the fourth annual Morningside Mile 1-mile race and block party benefitting Atlanta’s oldest fire station on Sunday, October 20, from noon to 2 p.m. Participants and non-runners alike are invited to enjoy an afternoon of festivities at the Morningside Village shopping center, home to the original Doc Chey’s. Block party activities are family-friendly and will include the annual Doc Chey’s noodle eating contests for adults and kids, music, food from local restaurants, cookie decorating with Alon’s bakery, a bouncy house, face painter, fire safety tips from Atlanta firefighters and games for kids and adults alike.

Race registration is currently open and the number of participants is limited this year. Registered runners get a technical race hat, free SweetWater beer (for adults) or Yoforia frozen yogurt (for kids), and a raffle ticket for a chance to win local merchant gift cards.  Families and strollers are welcome and encouraged to participate! New this year, teams of four can enter the race and the fastest team will win a $100 Doc Chey’s gift card.  Runners can register in-store at Phidippides and Highland Runners or online at Registration is $25 per person and will close on Thursday, October 17, or at 1000 runners, whichever comes first.

Last year’s Morningside Mile raised $8,000 for Atlanta fire station 19 in Virginia Highland and since its inception has raised more than $21,000. Over the years, lack of funding for proper maintenance on this 1925 historic landmark has resulted in termite damage to the staircase, holes in the ceiling and standing water in the station due to poor drainage.

Doc Chey’s Noodle House is a neighborhood restaurant that spreads good karma by serving affordable, freshly-wok’d noodles, stir-fries and handmade dim sum inspired by the cuisines of China, Japan, Thailand, Korea and Vietnam. For more information, visit
