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?

The Great American Milk Drives Helps Deliver Milk to Families in Need #MilkDrive

Milk is in short supply among America’s food banks – it is desperately needed, but seldom donated. Of the 37 million food bank clients Feeding America serves, they get an average of 1 gallon of milk per person per year.

Feeding America food banks hear from their clients that milk is one of the most desired—as well as nutrient-rich—products. However, nearly half of the nation’s food banks get fewer than 24 gallons of milk donated per week.

That’s why Feeding America and the dairy industry—including dairy farmers and milk companies—have launched a new initiative called The Great American Milk Drive.

The Great American Milk Drive is the first-ever nationwide, multi-year program that inspires people to donate milk to hungry families. This is an opportunity to address the growing epidemic of food insecurity while shining a spotlight on milk’s vital nutrient contributions, such as protein, calcium, potassium and vitamin D.

This campaign makes it easy for people to donate with a simple text or click of the mouse and help families in their own communities.  Donations will go to local food banks based on the donor’s zip code and be distributed in the form of milk coupons. 

The campaign runs from April 2, 2014 through April 1, 2015.
Through May 25, 2014, the dairy industry is matching all donations gallon-for-gallon*.  Go to to learn more.
You can also watch the kickoff Livestream event from April 2!

*up to $250,000

You can also join us in this movement on social media by using the hashtag #MilkDrive.
