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.

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.

Watch Partial Solar Eclipse This Thursday at Fernbank Science Center

On Thursday October 23rd, the Moon will move in front of the Sun, partially blocking our nearby star in what astronomers call a solar eclipse.  The event will be visible in Atlanta very late in the afternoon, from 6:01 p.m. until sunset at 6:52 p.m., with approximately 25 percent of the Sun covered by the Moon.  From the Fernbank Observatory, the Sun will only be about ten degrees above the western horizon at the start of the eclipse.  Please note that we will lose the setting Sun in the western tree-line prior to actual sunset.

Astronomers at Fernbank Science Center will host activities in concert with the solar eclipse, including a special planetarium program, an observatory open house (weather permitting), and a live web-based broadcast from the Griffith Observatory on the west coast.  Please see the schedule below for complete details:
Solar Eclipse Planetarium Program:    5:30 – 6:00 p.m. - Free
Solar Eclipse Telescope Viewing:        6:00 – 6:30 p.m.- Free 
Live Remote Eclipse Coverage:           6:30 – 7:00 p.m. - Free
 “Black Holes” Planetarium Program:   7:00 – 7:45 p.m.
Chasing the Ghost Particle” Planetarium Program: 8:00 – 8:45 p.m.
Evening Observatory Open House:     8:45 – 10:30 p.m.

Remember that directly viewing a partial eclipse of the Sun can cause permanent eye damage.  Never look directly at the Sun!  Astronomers at Fernbank Science Center will utilize safe ways to view the event, including solar filters and other techniques to safely project the image of the partially eclipsed Sun.
