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?

Ogre-tober! Scarecrows Challenge ‘Imaginations’ during October’s Harvest of Family Fun in the Garden

ATLANTA (September 5, 2013) – Enter an “imaginary world” at the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s annual Scarecrows in the Garden, celebration during October.

Throughout the month, the garden will be stuffed with more than 100 scarecrows created by artists, designers, schools, businesses and families. Participants compete for prizes in one of two design categories: professional and nonprofessional.

This year’s event is themed Ogre-tober! – a salute to one of the 19 giant topiary-like sculptures making up the Garden’s popular current exhibition, Imaginary Worlds: Plants Larger Than Life. The exhibition includes a giant Earth Goddess, a pair of towering cobras, a unicorn, butterflies, rabbits, a dog – and one friendly Ogre. Scarecrow designers are encouraged (but not required) to create their own ogre or cobra to mimic the ones in the show – or come up with their own imaginary being, be it based on a childhood story or an urban legend.
On Thursday evenings, visitors can check out the scarecrows under the glare of flashlights (which they are encouraged to bring) during Fest-of-Ale. Each week from 5-10 p.m., the beer fest features a variety of fine specialty ales and live musical entertainment. During the final night of Fest-of-Ale, October 24, some of Atlanta’s top chefs will square off for the fourth annual Great Chefs of Atlanta Pumpkin-Carving Contest.

For youngsters, harvest-themed activities will be on tap on weekends from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and on Sunday, October 27 they can don their favorite costumes for a day of treats and activities during Goblins in the Garden from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It will include storytelling, the Ride-On-Train and a cash bar for Mom and Dad Goblins.
