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?

Macy's is calling all charities! Tax-exempt organizations can participate in the store's Shop For a Cause day

FIND THE MAGIC OF GIVING BACK

Macy’s is calling all charities, encouraging them to participate in its ninth annual national Shop For A Cause – a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts. Macy’s Shop For A Cause will take place on Aug. 23, 2014, and charities that would like to participate can sign up now. Since 2006, the program has helped raise more than $44 million for thousands of charities across the country. Last year, more than 6,000 charities signed up to participate.

Macy’s is committed to giving back, nationally and to our local communities,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “For the last eight years, Macy’s Shop For A Cause program has provided our customers and associates a unique opportunity to show their support and give back to their local community organizations while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”

How to Join:
To qualify to participate, charitable organizations must have a 501(c) 3 or other recognized tax-exempt status. To apply, qualified charitable organizations can log onto macys.com/shopforacause and apply online. Macy’s will provide participating organizations with shopping passes to sell for $5 each, and the organization will keep 100 percent of the proceeds for every shopping pass that it sells.

How It Works:
Customers purchase a $5 Shop For A Cause savings pass from a participating charity or local Macy’s; then use the pass all day on Aug. 23 to enjoy spectacular discounts. Online customers who would like to participate can purchase a pass at macys.com on Aug. 23 and enjoy the savings discount on their online purchase that day. Passholders will receive special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, but some exclusions will apply. One hundred percent of the proceeds from passes purchased in store at Macy’s and on macys.com will benefit the March of Dimes, the nation’s leading nonprofit for pregnancy and baby health. Customers who want to purchase a pass to benefit a specific nonprofit organization can search for participating charities online at macys.com/shopforacause.

When Does It Start:
Participating charities may begin selling Shop For A Cause passes now. Shopping passes will also be sold at Macy’s stores from Aug. 13 through Aug. 23, 2014.
