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.

GIVEAWAY: Build-A-Bear Workshop® Aligns with Make-A-Wish® to "Share Your Heart" for Valentine's Day

Share your heart this Valentine’s Day
with personalized gifts from Build-A-Bear Workshop

Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest and most sharing times of the year at Build-A-Bear Workshop, so it is the perfect opportunity to ‘share your heart’ to help Make-A-Wish create special days for the children who need them most.  

From now through March 31, 2015, guests visiting any Build-A-Bear store who make a donation of $1.00 or more can have the opportunity to purchase a satin heart to benefit Make-A-Wish. Each time guests make a donation, they will be asked to sign a Valentine greeting for a child in a local hospital. 

One-hundred percent of the donations and funds from satin hearts collected will benefit Make-A-Wish. Last year, Build-A-Bear Workshop donated more than $440,000 to Make-A-Wish through the Share Your Heart partnership.  

A wish-come-true empowers children with life-threatening medical conditions to fight harder against their illness. You can help Build-A-Bear make more life-changing wishes possible! 

Stuffed animals are a classic Valentine’s Day gift that can be made even more special at Build-A-Bear Workshop. These furry friends can be customized by adding a heart filled with wishes and a special message you record ($8) to play every time you give them a bear hug. A wide selection of unique fashions and accessories are also available to help personalize gifts to celebrate this day of love and friendship.
