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?

It's Blog Action Day! Stand Up For Homeless Families in Atlanta #BAD2013 #HumanRights

 

Housing is a Human Right


Today I'm joining hundreds of bloggers, social media users, vloggers, podcasters, designers, infographic and data producers for "Blog Action Day". Blog Action Day is the one day of the year where thousands of bloggers, from all over the world can work together to focus on one important global topic, and help raise awareness and money for charities and social causes.

When it comes to human rights I strongly believe that every human being has the right to have access to adequate housing. The need for transitional housing in metro Atlanta and across the country is greater now than ever before. According to homeless census data estimates, more than 10,000 people in metro Atlanta experience homelessness on any given night, with more than 40 percent being women and children. A comprehensive, three-county survey of Atlanta's homeless shelters found a shortage of 1,700 beds for all single homeless people, including children and youth. According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH), between 700,000 and 800,000 people are homeless on any given night in the U.S., with between 2.5 and 3.5 million people experiencing homelessness during the course of a year.


Is hard to believe that Atlanta is the poorest city in the U.S. for children - more children in Atlanta live in poverty than in any other city. There are several non-profit organizations in Atlanta that work day and night to help families overcome homelessness. Please visit their website and learn about events, fundraising initiatives, and volunteering opportunities. When we work togheter, join our skills, and pour our heart and soul toward people who in many ocassions only have the clothes on their back, amazing things can happen. To change one life is to change the world!!
