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?

Fernbank Kicks of Its 97 Days of Play with Island Adventure Day

Come Celebrate Summer Island Style With Games, Music, Crafts And More
ATLANTA, April 22, 2014 – Fernbank Museum of Natural History will host Island Adventure Day, a fun-filled day appropriate for the whole family, on Saturday May 31, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Featuring games, a DJ, crafts and activities, the event kicks off a summer-long celebration of science and fun as part of the 97 Days to Play series of events, activities, celebrations, giveaways and more.

Island Adventure Day is inspired by Fernbank’s current special exhibits and IMAX® films, including Whales: Giants of the Deep, Journey to the South Pacific, and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar.

This special event day will provide guests with the chance to come face-to-face with live lemurs, as well as some other creatures that are native to the mysterious island of Madagascar. In addition to live animals, the day will feature DJ Trey Caples, who will ensure that all guests are entertained with island music, limbo and hula hooping contests. Guests can also get inspired by the traditions of the South Pacific at a lei-making station and take part in a fish scale craft that will allow guests to create their own colorful fish using tissue-paper “scales.”

The fun doesn’t stop there, as Island Adventure Day will also feature a shell scavenger hunt. The hunt will provide guests with a unique view of the Museum. Children will have the chance to search the Museum for rare shells and unique shell fossils while learning lesser known facts about the artifacts. Guests who complete the hunt in its entirety will be entered to win a prize.

To go along with the scavenger hunt, Fernbank’s educators will have a variety of ocean artifacts available at the Museum’s interactive shell cart, which will provide guests with the chance to get a true hands-on experience as they learn exciting information about the world’s oceans.

As always, Fernbank will supply a variety of games including a simulated fishing experience, pineapple bowling and a temporary tattoo station.
Visitors also are encouraged to take in the films and special exhibitions that inspired the Island Adventure Day, including the new film Island of Lemurs: Madagascar showing at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. (requires the purchase of an IMAX ticket); Journey to the South Pacific, showing at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. (requires an IMAX ticket); and the special museum exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep, on view all day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (included with museum admission).

Island Adventure Day activities are included with Museum admission and are free for Fernbank members. Museum tickets are $18 for adults, $17 for students and seniors, $16 for children ages 3-12 and free for children aged 2 and under. Value Pass tickets, which include museum admission and one IMAX film, are $26 for adults, $24 for students and seniors, $22 for children ages 3-12, free for children aged 2 and under and $8 for members.
