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.

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.

Calling All Superheroes! Support Children's Healthcare of Atlanta on Cape Day! #CapeDayATL

What is Cape Day?
Some superheroes battle scary villains. At Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, our superheroes fight something much scarier—accidents and illnesses that create challenges most of us could never imagine. One superhero patient in particular, DJPitts, has overcome near impossible obstacles, and when he dons a cape, nothing is out of reach.

DJ wore many capes during his six-month hospital stay after accidentally swallowing a dangerous engine cleaning material. From Batman and Superman capes to a homemade cape that proudly said “Super DJ,” the capes helped power DJ through the toughest of days.

Armed with his extraordinary powers and donning his signature cape, DJ is going to show the world just how strong he is by making a 19-story building crumble to the ground on Saturday, Nov. 8. To help build DJ’s superhero confidence the day before the implosion, people across Atlanta will show support for DJ by wearing capes on Cape Day.

Who is participating?
Staff and patients at Children’s, media personalities, non-profit organizations, sports teams, government officials, schools, Atlanta landmarks, local businesses—basically, all of Atlanta is joining together to cheer on DJ.

How can you show your support on Cape Day?On Cape Day, our goal is to surprise and delight DJ and the hundreds of kids in our hospitals with photos that show the Atlanta community wearing capes in their honor.

  1. Wear a cape to support kids and show DJ and all the patients at Children’s you support them.
    • Host a cape making party in your classroom or at your office, and wear a cape on Cape Day.
  1. Post your own cape day photos using #CapeDayATL on social media to show your support for DJ and other superhero patients like him.
    • Let students or employees show off their capes by hosting a parade or walk through the cafeteria or around the football field Nov. 7.
