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.

I’m participating in Miracle Marathon and invite you to join my team!

Walk, Run or just move for one mile every day, for 27 days — that is a miracle marathon!
I'm so excited to tell you about the latest fundraising initiative of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.  They are partnering with Miracle Network  for this year Miracle Marathon. I was able to meet with the amazing team of Children's Healthcare and Miracle Network to learn more about this project.   

Do it For The Kids! Join The Miracle Marathon and Help Raise Money For Children's Healthcare Of Atlanta

Would you accept a new challenge if it would not only achieve your goal but also help someone else? What if it was a challenge that you could do with your family or coworkers? What if you could make a difference to the 395 kids that are in one of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hospitals at this moment you are reading this?

What is Miracle Marathon?  Miracle Marathon is the marathon anyone can finish, while helping Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta! Watch this video to learn more! Miracle Marathon is basically a 27.2 day virtual fundraising campaign in which participants run/walk (or achieve forward motion) one mile per day at their your leisure. Each day, CMN Hospitals will send challenges or motivational messages with the goal of building an interactive, online community of participants.

The first 26 days are completed at the participant’s own leisure—at a time and place of their own choosing. On day 27, the final 1.2 miles will be completed as a group, and no matter where you are in the world, all participants will start their last 1.2 miles at the same time. This will create potential for a large public awareness opportunity.

It’s a marathon, plus a mile, for the kids!

How do I participate?
Every day, just move for one mile. You can walk, run, bike, skate, jump, hop, or any kind of exercise achieving one mile per day. Complete your mile any time of the day, and with friends, family, co-workers or by yourself!

What happens on October 27th?
At 2:27pm Eastern Standard Time, we will all walk our last 1.2 miles together. No matter where you are, let’s complete our journey together, all at the same time.
