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?

Adventure Abounds in Madcap Comedy, The Explorers Club, March 26- April 19 at Aurora Theatre

Hilarious Tale of Exploration Pokes Fun at Victorian England’s Patriarchal Ideals

Prepare for an adventure filled with zany humor, mad science and a touch of gender inequality, oh my! Hilarity unfolds as one woman propels Victorian England’s prestigious Explorers Club into a tizzy when she is nominated to join the all-male sanctum! With the potential to uproot the patriarchal foundation of the British Empire, The Explorers Club combines wry humor with cheeky disposition to present a riveting engagement at Aurora Theatre, March 26 – April 19, 2015. With its fast-paced and witty dialogue, the show takes audiences on a journey of juxtaposition of feminine ideals against the oppressive backdrop of conservative 19th century Great Britain.

"What I love most about this play is that every character is so much fun; you can't take your eyes off of them!  Playwright Nell Benjamin created roles for men who are each uniquely hilarious and display a ton of heart – and Courtney Patterson can go toe to toe with each of them,” says director Jaclyn Hofmann. “On top of all the funny, the explorers are telling a story with real issues of gender inequality that are still prevalent in today’s society.”

Written by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin and under the direction of Aurora’s talented Director of Education, Jaclyn Hofmann,The Explorers Club chronicles the journey of anthropologist Phyllida Spotte-Hume and her discovery of a lost civilization of brightly blue-painted tribesmen. After presenting proof of her findings, turmoil unfolds amidst London’s most gifted minds. As the gentlemen decide if her intellect and skill are worthy of acceptance into the influential club of scientists, philosophers and aristocrats, Phyllida sets out to the beat of her own drum to prove she deserves to be an explorer. With an out of kilter encounter with Queen Victoria, the escape of deadly cobras, irate Irishmen and vines gone wild, London may never be the same.

Recommended for adventurous teen and adult audiences, The Explorers Club is presented March 26 – April 19, 2015. A discount weekday matinee will be offered on Wednesday, April 15 at 10 a.m. for $16 per person. Regular show time tickets can be purchased for $20-$40 per person online at or by calling the Box Office at 678-226-6222.
