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.

What's Happy This Week! Roof Top Vegetable Garden For The Homeless Shelter


April 5, was “PLANTING DAY”, for the Task Force and its volunteers as they plant vegetables in the 50 raised beds the group has constructed over the past two weeks.  


The purpose of the garden is to provide a home-grown and sustainable source of nutrition and food for the homeless community”, says Anita Beaty. The 95,000 square foot Homeless Shelter located on the corners of Peachtree & Pines Streets is the largest shelter space in the southeastern US  providing shelter and services to an average of 750 men, women, and children on a daily basis.  The shelter is a non-profit 501©3 organization. 

Over the past two weeks the shelter has received loads of donated compost and topsoil, all of which was bucket brigaded up 4 flights of stairs.  Volunteers will use the 120 pieces of donated lumber to make 40 raised planting beds (see photos below of the beds already built and producing seedlings).  Other smaller pre-fab planting beds were also donated.


Those local businesses contributing the majority of supplies were:
Lowe’s Stores:  Alpharetta, Suwannee, Chamblee                        
Home Depot:  Cumming, Windward Pkwy, Hwy 92, Holcomb Bridge                   
Costco: Brookhaven
A-Class Solutions, Inc
Plant Rescue of Georgia
Paul’s Martino’s Planting Beds
Global Paints for Charity
Scottsdale Farms
Dunkin Donuts
B & B Bagels
Brooklyn Joe’s Pizza
Volunteers from: 12Stone, North Point Community, and Stonecreek church

The mission of the Task Force is to advocate with and to represent the dignity and rights of people who are homeless in our society, toward the goal of preventing homelessness and seeking appropriate and affordable housing for all. To learn more please visit:
