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?

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Announces Summer Safety Tips


Five part initiative on summer safety for kids

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has released its 2014 Summer Safety Tips, which focuses on five aspects of summer safety that parents and children can practice to ensure a safe and healthy summer. The list includes helpful advice to promote water, travel & play, sun & skin, heat and fireworks safety.

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death in children age 14 and under,” said James Fortenberry, M.D., Pediatrician-in-Chief,Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “Summer is an exciting time for kids. With that excitement comes an added responsibility for parents andchildren to educate themselves on what they can do to ensure a safe and healthy summer.”

Children’s has created a special section of their website dedicated to summer safety awareness. Parents can visit choa.org/summersafety to educate themselves and their children on ways to have a safe and healthy summer. The tips include:
  • Water Safety – Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional death of children age 14 and under. Practicing water safetyincluding boat, pool, swimming, life jacket and general water safety can help prevent this.

  • Play & Travel Safety – The summer season brings more time outside and on the road. Keep your family safe by practicing safeplay and travel tips like following road rules on a bike or properly buckling your children while in the car.

  • Sun & Skin Safety – Melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer that can spread rapidly to different parts of the body, accounts for up to three percent of pediatric cancer. Protect your kids by taking measures to prevent sunburn, and by understanding the potentially permanent effects of excessive sun exposure.

  • Heat Safety – Each year, young athletes and children die from heat-related illness, which is completely preventable. Know the signs of heat illness, keep kids hydrated while playing outside, and understand how to protect babies and young children from the heat.

  • Fireworks Safety – When it comes to fireworks safety, stick to the professionals and keep kids away. Doing so can prevent burns, the most common fireworks injury.



We see an increase in emergency department visits during the summer months due to unintentional injuries that can be prevented by taking a few extra safety precautions,” said Dr. Fortenberry. “Summer should be a fun and active time for families, not spent in the hospital.”
