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.

Keep Your Girls Body Strong and Your Taste Buds Happy with Viactiv® Calcium Chews #ViactivYoursandHers

It is never too early to start worrying about bone health. Many moms are surprised to learn that 86% of teenage girls have calcium-deficient diets (overall, 68% percent of adult women are calcium deficient). Why is this such a frightening statistic? For teen girls, this deficiency comes at a crucial time for bone health, since 95% of bone building occurs by the time she's 20! Calcium is the main mineral that strengthens bones and this is most important during adolescence when teens are going through their growth spurt. If you have a teenage at home like a do, you need to make sure they are getting a good nutrition.

I recently bought the new Viactiv® calcium chocolate chews to supplement my calcium intake and I was pleasantly surprised that not only they taste like a real chocolate but they are fortified with vitamin D. Vitamin D helps promote the absorption of calcium, so if you have a deficiency of vitamin D your bones may not be able to absorb the adequate amount of calcium they need to them keep them healthy.

I have been diagnosed with a severe deficiency of vitamin D and I need to take supplements for the rest of my life (true story). I always worry my daughter could experience the same problem so I bought the Viactiv® calcium caramel chews to supplement her nutrition. She is very picky when it comes to supplements so I wasn't sure if she would like it or not. But guess what? She loves them. Her first reaction was "I feel like I'm cheating. This feels like I'm eating a real caramel. Yum!"
