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 Museum Announces Dinosaur Month


Come Celebrate Dinosaurs At The South’s Best Natural History Museum

Fernbank Museum of Natural History has declared August Dinosaur Month. Of course no Fernbank celebration is complete without events, crafts, throwbacks and some exciting ways to learn.

Throughout the month, Fernbank will be posting throwback photos on social media channels honoring the many places visitors can encounter dinosaurs throughout the Museum. Fernbank will also offer dinosaur-themed editions of the popular story-time program, Tadpole Tales, on August 16 and 17, and of the family-friendly Weekend Wonders program every Saturday and Sunday throughout the month.

 

On Saturday, August 23 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Fernbank will host its annual Dinosaur Birthday Bash to celebrate the anniversary of theGiants of the Mesozoic exhibit. The exhibition was the first time the world saw the full skeletons of the world’s largest dinosaurs—the 123-foot-long Argentinosaurus and the 47-foot-long Giganotosaurus.

This exciting day will feature DJ Willy Wow, who will entertain guests with festive music, dancing and interactive activities. The day will also include a hands-on opportunity to dig for dinosaurs in a mock dinosaur dig led by Fernbank’s experienced educators. “Giggy A. Dinosaur,” the Museum’s popular mascot, will be in attendance. Visitors can also come face-to-face with an additional Gigonotosaurusskull, offering a rare opportunity to investigate the massive six-foot-long skull up close. Dinosaur Birthday Bash will also feature the Georgia Bubbleman, fun games and dinosaur temporary tattoos. No birthday party is complete without birthday wishes, and to ensure a festive party, guests are invited to craft their own birthday hat and join in on a happy birthday sing-along with “Giggy.”

Throughout August, the entire Museum will get into the dinosaur spirit by providing photo opportunities, dinosaur craft tutorials on the Fernbank blog, fossil FUN carts, giveaways and scavenger hunts.


All Dinosaur Month activities, including the Dinosaur Birthday Bash, are included with Museum admission, which is $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.
