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?

Atlanta, Let's Build a New Ronald McDonald House #HealKidsATL

Atlanta, we need your help! Our friends at Ronald McDonald House Charities have until December 31 to claim a $2.5 million challenge grant. Help us meet our fundraising goal to build a new Ronald McDonald House so the can provide comfort and hope for families of sick and injured children


Since 2011, Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) has had to turn away more than 650 families because rooms weren’t available. With only 11-bedrooms and growing demand, the current House has a waiting list most nights.

A larger House is needed to fulfill the Charity’s mission of providing temporary housing and support services to families of children receiving medical care in Atlanta.

To meet this growing need, ARMHC is building a new 31-bedroom, three-story House at the current Peachtree Dunwoody location to replace the existing 11-bedroom facility, nearly tripling our capacity to serve families.

The new House is estimated to open in early 2016 and will feature:

-31 guest rooms with private baths
-Full ADA accessibility, including an elevator and roll-in showers
-Energy-efficient, sustainable design built to LEED standards
-A full pantry and kitchen with dining areas
-An innovative, indoor treehouse to aid in healing through play


Studies show that children heal better and faster when their families can be near them during recovery. The Ronald McDonald House provides families with a home away from home during some of the most challenging times in their lives.

Plans for the House are centered on building a welcoming home that offers the basics necessities of life: a comfortable, convenient refuge near the hospital.

In addition, 24-hour transportation is available to and from the hospital, and families are provided with healthy meals, positive distractions and the compassion and community of other families, volunteers and professional staff that helps each family focus on what is most important — the healing of their child.

About Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities:

ARMHC is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to serving the needs of children by providing temporary housing and support services to families of ill and injured children being treated at local hospitals.
