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?

Sticky Fingers Chicken Wings with Manwich BBQ Sauce

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Love chicken wings? Today we are sharing a fall-off-the-bone delicious sticky fingers chicken wings recipe that is perfect when you are craving that sweet, saucy smokey goodness from a BBQ joint. For the sauce we are making our own BBQ sauce using Manwich, a hearty sauce with a sweet and tangy taste. There is no meat in Manwich cans making it perfect for sandwiches, pastas and more. I think the combination of Manwich and chicken wings is something most people wouldn't normally pair together but trust me Manwich has infinite uses besides sloppy joes.
This recipe is an adaptation of the saucy chicken wings recipe from the Manwich recipe page. The key to this recipe is that in order to make the BBQ sauce you need to mix all the ingredients first and cook them over low heat.

For the sticky-finger fall-off-the-bone recipe you will need:
  • 1 can (15 oz each) Manwich® Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Gulden's® Spicy Brown Mustard
  • 1/2 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of smoke liquid
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger (this gives it an incredibly kick of flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 3 pounds chicken wing drumettes
  • PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray(optional)

  1. To make the Manwich BBQ sauce combine Manwich® Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce, mustard, brown sugar, liquid smoke, ginger, salt and red pepper and mix slowly at low heat for about 5 minutes. Let the sauce cool off, and season your wings with salt and pepper. This sauce will be used as a marinade and as a basting sauce
  2. Place chicken in large re-closable food storage bag. Add half of sauce mixture to bag; close bag and coat chicken with sauce. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining sauce mixture.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cover large baking sheet with aluminum foil; spray with cooking spray. Remove chicken from sauce mixture; place in single layer on baking sheet. Discard bag with remaining marinade.
  4. Bake 25 minutes. Brush chicken on both sides with reserved sauce mixture. Bake 20 minutes more or until tender.

Cook's Tips

Serve wings with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping, if desired. These wings are mild flavored for all-family appeal. If spicier wings are desired, increase the ground red pepper.
