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?

Breakfast Recipes We Love! Strawberry-Banana Milk Based Smoothie For A Healthy New You #GotMilkGotProtein

I'm a spokesperson on behalf the Protein Fight Club Milk Mustache Campaign. I have been compensated for this post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Start your mornings with a refreshing protein packed milk-based smoothie. This sweet delicious smoothie is packed with protein from the milk and peanuts, potassium from the bananas, and a big dose of vitamins and antioxidants from the strawberries.

As a Milk Mustache Campaign spokesperson, I've been learning how to improve my eating habits, especially at breakfast. One thing I have learned from my partnered dietician Carolyn O'Neil is to pump up my mornings by incorporating 8oz of milk on my breakfast routine. Despite the known benefits of a good breakfast, Americans continue to skip this important meal. With 8 grams of protein in each 8-ounce glass (even more than in an egg!), milk is a nutrient-rich breakfast staple.

Please keep following our Milk Mustache Campaign blog posts. We'll be featuring some of Carolyn's new breakfast recipes from her brand new book “Southern Living Slim Down South Cookbook: Eating well and living healthy in the land of biscuits and bacon”. She has lot's of killer recipes to help you keep those new years resolutions. Until then feel free to try out this smoothie that is oh so yummy and is made with skim milk!
