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 Compassion Experience Makes a Successful Debut in Atlanta (Photo Recap)


More than 1.4 billion people in developing countries live on less than $1.25 per day, facing challenges most Americans never will. Compassion International’s Change the Story: The Compassion Experience completed its four-day stop at North Georgia State Fair in Marietta on September 24. The tour took visitors on a journey into the lives of three former Compassion-sponsored children from India, Uganda and Bolivia.


The tour is highly interactive, using individual iPods and headsets to offer visitors a sense of what life is like in extremely poverty-stricken areas around the world where more than 1.4 billion people are living on less than $1.25 per day (USD). In the areas Compassion serves, one in five children die before the age of five, mostly from preventable causes, and 101 million children worldwide do not attend school. Tour goers will have the opportunity to “change the story” of children living in poverty by learning more about the issue, as well as Compassion’s child sponsorship program, which tackles global poverty one child at a time. Compassion currently serves more than 1.4 million children in 26 of the world's most impoverished countries.


A 20-minute self-guided tour immersed visitors in the lives of one of the three children. Through the use of a personal iPod, a headset and over 3,100 square feet of interactive space, visitors will see the children’s homes, walk through schools and markets, and hear life-changing stories of hope — all from the perspective of a child whose life began in poverty. 



This free event is appropriate for all ages and is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has never had the chance to travel outside the U.S. to get a small glimpse of what life can be like in developing countries.


The cross-country tour will stop at more than 35 locations and travel 65,000 miles across the United States this year. For more information about “Change the Story: The Compassion Experience”, visit www.compassion.com/change @ChangeTour on Twitter, and www.facebook.com/changetour on Facebook.
