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?

Surprise Snowfall at Children's Healthcare Of Atlanta Brings Happiness To Sick Kids #CHOASnow

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is a hospital that understands that happy kids heal faster. On Monday, December 2, a team of employees went on a secret mission to bring a surprise winter wonderland for their patients, families and staff. They teamed up with a special effects company that works with Disney to create a secret snowfall. 

The "snow" started to fall at three hospitals simultaneously. Happiness immediately erupted and patients giggled in the flurries, while others marveled at the magic through their window. 
On a 57-degree day in a city that rarely sees snow in its weather forecast, dozens of kids—many of them tethered to I.V. poles and wearing surgical masks—caught their first snowflakes, made their first snow angels and, for a few brief minutes, traded the title of "patient" for "kid." 


Children's Healthcare of Atlanta understands that small things can have a big impact and believes that every child deserves to experience the magic and wonder of the holidays, especially if they have to be in the hospital this time of year.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta relies on donations and volunteer support to make a difference in children’s lives. With more than half a million patient visits each year—including children from all 159 counties in Georgia—they are one of the largest pediatric clinical care providers in the country. Learn more at
