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?

Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol Brings Warmth and Life to Aurora Theatre, November 28-December 21

Spirited Solo Performance Captures the True Meaning of Holiday Season

The annual holiday classic, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, is returning to Aurora Theatre for its eighth consecutive year, November 28-December 21. In true storytelling fashion, audiences travel back to 19th century England for an incredibly personal and moving one-man version of the cherished story that grasps the true meaning of the holiday season – the joy of giving. Starring Aurora veteran Anthony P. Rodriguez as the cold and bitter Ebenezer Scrooge with direction by Tony Brown, audiences are invited to rediscover Dickens’ oft-told tale that has touched hearts for more than 150 years.

Many think of A Christmas Carol as a huge theatrical production, but the beauty of our version is the simplicity behind it,” said Anthony Rodriguez, Aurora Theatre Producing Artistic Director. “Before the novel was brought to stage, Dickens actually read the story at Christmas parties in England as entertainment, which is why the one-man show works.”


The intimate Aurora Theatre Studio is transformed to make audiences feel as though they’ve been personally invited into Mr. Dickens’ parlor. The scene is set as a brisk Christmas Eve, when Marley pays a visit to his old business partner, Mr. Scrooge. Through mannerisms and voice alone, Rodriguez brings the characters of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley and the remarkable ghosts to life before audience members’ eyes. Throughout the play, audiences witness the change of “Bah-humbug” Scrooge through scenes from his own life and revisit the splendor of what makes A Christmas Carol one of the greatest Christmas stories of all time.

The hard work and guidance of Director Tony Brown sets his adaption of A Christmas Carol apart from other renditions. Bringing the tale to life is the design team of Britt Hultgren Ramroop (set), James M. Helms (lights), Daniel Terry (sound/ technical director), Alan Yeong (costumes), and Sarah Thomson (scenic artist).  

Audiences of all ages will love A Christmas Carol, which is presented November 28-December 21, 2014. Tickets range from $20-$30.Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the Box Office at 678.226.6222.
