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.

Historic Oakland Cemetery’s Sunday In the Park Returns Oct. 5


One-of-a-kind Victorian street festival marks 35th anniversary 

ATLANTA — On Sunday, Oct. 5, Atlanta’s “passed” and present will meet at historic Oakland Cemetery at Sunday In the Park. Celebrating 35 years as one of the city’s most unique fall festivals, Sunday In the Park features an afternoon full of music, art, food, dancing and more. 

From noon to 6 p.m., Atlanta’s oldest cemetery will host thousands of locals and visitors, as well as food trucks from Palookaville, The Varsity, Six Feet Under, WOW!, Mighty Meatballs and Al A Carte Frozen Bananas.  More than 10 musical acts will perform throughout the day, alongside dancers, storytellers, and actors. 

In keeping with historic Oakland Cemetery’s Victorian aesthetic, attendees are invited to get into the spirit of Sunday In the Park by dressing in period clothing. A Victorian costume contest will determine the best dressed in both traditional and steampunk categories. 

The street festival also features a photo exhibition and contest, with first-place winners receiving a $100 gift card to Ruth’s Chris Steak House. 

Sunday In the Park is the perfect way to wind down the weekend in the city,” said Mary Woodlan, director of special events at Historic Oakland Foundation. “It’s a truly unique event for all ages, and we’re excited to celebrate this milestone anniversary.” 

All proceeds from Sunday In the Park benefit Historic Oakland Foundation, the organization that maintains stewardship of Oakland Cemetery in partnership with the City of Atlanta. For full details on Sunday In the Park, visit www.oaklandcemetery.com
