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.

What's Happy This Week: Muscle Shoals Middle School Video Promoting Individuality & Acceptance


You cannot have a happy life if you cannot accept yourself for who you really are. Self-acceptance is the most important factor in our ability to live a happy life, and is the one habit that we often practice the least. The teachers and students of Muscle Shoals Middle School made a remarkable online video to spread the message of acceptance and embracing individuality not just at Middle Shoals, but everywhere. Muscle Shoals Middle School Principal Matthew Carpenter said the project resulted from brainstorming sessions of how to promote messages of positivity for the school.

"We live in a very diverse world and we encourage the importance of embracing it," he said. "We hope this helps move in that direction.

The message behind the video is the importance of understanding human differences and embracing those differences in order to create a positive and caring school culture and climate.

The message preceding the video ends with a three word mantra that everyone who views it should take away with them.
"Be kind. Always."



If you were in the video, what would your sign say? Let us know in the comment section.
