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.

CARE strikes poverty at its roots. The organization provides tools for sustainable change to the people most vulnerable to hunger, violence and disease. In its work, CARE focuses on women and girls because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole families and entire communities out of poverty. 

CARE also responds to emergencies all around the world. Mothers are particularly vulnerable during conflicts and natural disasters. Most likely to be responsible for children and least likely to have access to information and resources, mothers bear a particularly heavy load when disaster strikes.  Moms like  Heba, who along with her then seven-year-old daughter, Eman, was shot in war-torn Syria. CARE is assisting Heba and other Syrian refugees get the counseling they need to restart their lives.

A gift to CARE can help a mom like Heba get back on her feet. It can help women send their daughters to school in places where girls have traditionally been denied an education. It can also assure a pregnant woman has a safe place to give birth in one of the world’s poorest communities,” said Tolli Love, CARE’s vice president of fundraising and marketing. “Supporting CARE is the ultimate way to pay it forward in honor of a mom on our special day.”
