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.

You're Invited! A Recipe For Hope Polo Event October 26


This Saturday 10/26, the Atlanta tennis community and top area restaurants, like Buckhead Diner, South City Kitchen and Luciano's (and more), will be launching a new cookbook, “For the Love of Food,” at a polo match at Union Hill Polo Club.  All proceeds from the cookbook will go to Giving Comfort – a program of the McKesson Foundation that provides care packages (called Comfort Kits) containing comfort items to financially-disadvantaged cancer patients (women, men and children) undergoing chemotherapy treatment in the Atlanta area and nationwide.

The effort, which has been led by a woman named Megan Holmes and others in the Atlanta community, has been a great way to mix a few things they love – tennis, cooking and giving back to the community. Megan, who works for McKesson Corporation has seen the impact of the Giving Comfort program and thought the cookbook would be a great way to support the program, particularly because of the great partnerships the program has with area organizations like Grady Health and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
