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?

    Parenting & Pets
    There are some  cleaning tips that you can do at home if you are a parent like me with pets at home that can help you minimize the amount of cleaning and vacuuming you do during the day.

    1. Cleaning up after play dates, sleepovers, school-year study sessions, etc.
    • When kids come together, the messes multiply – quick ways to clean up leftover messes from kids’ play dates, slumber parties and study sessions.
    • Messes such as after-school/movie snacks; art projects; paint, pen and marker stains; and sticky messes like glue, juice boxes and more. 

    2. Chore checklist for the entire family
    • Get the entire family involved in cleaning the house with tasks that family members of every age can easily do. 

    3. Cleaning kid (and pet) messes in the car
    • Families spend a lot of time in the car between road trips, school carpools and everyone’s activities. So, it’s not hard to see why there can be just as many messes in the car as in the home. 

    4. Quick touch-ups when you have little time to clean 
    • Quick cleaning solutions for every room in the house when you only have 5, 10 or 15 minutes. 

    5. Your pets aren’t confined to one room in the house and neither are their messes 
    • As furry members of the family, pets have free reign of the house, but they also take their messes with them.
    • PGLO is lightweight enough to move to wherever messes are in the house. Its lift-off pod, crevice tool and long-stretch hose make it easy to clean hard-to-reach pet hair and tracked-in dirt.
