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?

Fashion Project Returns To Lenox Square To Offer Guests An Opportunity To Donate Clothing And Give Back


Buckhead’s premier shopping destination encourages customers to give generously through their closets and raise funds for their favorite charity with Fashion Project. Guests can drop off clothing at Lenox Square’s Guest Services and earn a $20 Simon Giftcard® for every five qualifying items.

Select Simon malls, including Lenox Square, are teaming up with Fashion Project to offer mall guests the opportunity to donate their gently worn clothing to benefit charitable causes. Fashion Project is the premiere online clothing donation service committed to using fashion as a force for good.



Between January 19, 2015 and February 1, 2015, Lenox Square shoppers can pick up a Donation Bag at Simon Mall® Guests Services which is located on the mall’s main level in between David Yurman and Coach or request one online at fashionproject.com/simon.


Fashion Project accepts women’s clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories from brands such as Free People, Tory Burch and Prada. A complete list of qualifying brands is listed on Fashion Project’s ‘Qualifying Brands List’ (fashionproject.com/brands).  A qualifying item must be in near new or great condition.

Upon receipt of the Donation Bag at Fashion Project Headquarters, Fashion Project will sort and sell the items, donating 55% of the proceeds to the donor’s charity of choice.

In addition, for every five qualifying items, the donor will earn a $20 Simon Giftcard. There is no limit to the giftcard quantity so if you donate 10 qualifying items you’ll earn $40 and so on.

With the help of Fashion Project, we are excited to be able to offer our shoppers a unique opportunity to support a worthy cause,” said Lauren McNulty, director of marketing and business development for Lenox Square.

We are thrilled to make donating through Fashion Project even more accessible,” says Anna Palmer, CEO of Fashion Project. “We hope creating an in-person experience will result in an increase in donations and funds to support charitable causes worldwide.”
