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?

Stan the Lovesick Snowman: Love Warms Even the Coldest Heart Jan. 2-Feb. 2 at Center For Puppetry Arts

A snowman falls head-over-heels for a stove at the Center for Puppetry Arts

Opposites attract in this charming tale of unrequited love.  Stan the Lovesick Snowman plays at the Center for Puppetry Arts Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014.  Stan’s adorable story begins after a chance encounter with a dog that has been sent outside in the wintry cold.  The dog tells the snowman about a warm stove inside the house, and with a “crack-crackle” in his heart, Stan falls in love with the wood-burning beauty.   The unlikely romance, doomed from the start, is only the beginning in this hilarious and heartwarming tale as Stan later discovers that a young snowwoman is swooning over him as well.

Adapted and directed by the Center’s artistic director, Jon Ludwig, Stan the Lovesick Snowman is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Snow Man.” 

It was a natural fit for this winter-inspired show to follow on the tails of our popular holiday classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” said Ludwig. “Stan is the ultimate hopeless romantic.  There is so much humor in a snowman in love with a wood stove and there is a sweet lesson that ‘love will win in the end.’  Let’s warm ourselves up with a charming tale of misdirected love and knowing who your real friends are!”

Husband and wife puppeteer-duo, Tim and Amy Sweeney, portray 13 characters in the production including Stan the Snowman, Abigail the Snowwoman, Alice the Dog, the Moose Mailman, a trouble making Cat and more.  This delightful fairy tale, recommended for ages 4 and up, will melt the hearts of audiences everywhere.

Stan the Lovesick Snowman is presented in the Downstairs Theater, Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014. Show times are as follows:

·         Tuesday – Friday: 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
·         Saturday: 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
·         Sunday: 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
The Center for Puppetry Arts will be closed January 1 (New Year’s Day); no performances on that date.

Tickets include Museum admission as well as the Create-A-Puppet Workshop (or To-Go Kit), where children can make their own Stan the Snowman rod puppet.
