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?

Burger's Smokehouse Simple Traditions Since 1952 (REVIEW)

What is it about about extreme weather and being trapped at home that makes you crave rich yummy food, like BBQ ribs? Our friends at Burger's smokehouse sent us a box with some of their top sellers products to try at home. I have to say that the first thing that surprised me was the delivery. I found the box in front of my door at 7am, so either I got a late delivery or a very early one. Thank goodness it was freezing outside and all the meats were covered with gel icepacks.

Established in 1952, Burger's Smokehouse offers various hickory smoked meat products. The company offers a variety of items, such as country butter samplers, smoked beef jerky, Ozark barbecue sauce trio, biscuit mix, frozen frogs legs, baked beans, sausage and cheese gift boxes, iron skillet and serrated steak knives. It additionally offers products, such as meat lover gift sets, crab cakes, baby Swiss cheese, country preserves variety packs, wooden cheese boards peanuts and twice-baked potatoes.

The company also makes polish kielbasa sausage, and Italian prosciutto rotola. Its product inventory also includes items, such as breakfast sausages, Canadian bacon, chicken, desserts and sweets, fish and seafood, game birds, pork chops and roasts, ribs, samplers and variety packs, seasonings, snacks, steaks and burgers, and boneless, smoked and fresh turkey.

Burger's Smokehouse is one of the largest processors of naturally cured hams in the U.S. The family owned business smokes and cures chickens, turkeys and other meats the "old-fashioned way" and sells "naturally aged" hams. Products include original "country" bacon, peppered country bacon and brown sugar cured "country" ham. 

My favorite products are the Country Peppered Bacon and their Signatured Sauced Baby Back Ribs. The pepper bacon is just delicious and I just love the mouth-watering burst of peppery pork flavor. The Country Peppered Bacon cut is not to thin or too thick, and it does not shrink a lot when cooking. This bacon is  perfect for BLT, burgers, and just about anything else you can imagine. Everything tastes better with bacon, that is if you are using the right one.

Burger's Smokehouse also have a line of fully cooked ribs that are dynamite. When I noticed that they were fully cooked my first reaction was that they were going to get chewy and hard after I take them out of the oven, but boy was I wrong. The meat melts in your mouth like butter. The ribs are tender, moist, juicy and flavorful, and the meat fall of the bone easily. The sauce is well balanced with just the right amount of acid and sweetness. We served them during our Christmas dinner and everyone was fighting over them. They are that good!
