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?

Explore Your Inner Scientist at the 2015 Atlanta Science Festival


The Atlanta Science Festival is an eight-day, citywide collaboration showcasing science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. The second annual event will be held March 21-28, 2015. Simply put: it’s a remarkable opportunity to raise awareness and build interest in science and technology across different ages, neighborhoods and education levels. The metro Atlanta area has been a growing science and technology corridor. This Festival is an annual citywide event with that history (and future) in mind, with a clear goal of making science programming exciting and accessible to every resident. There will be more than 100 events over an eight-day period, and most will be free. Events vary in topic, style, and target audience, including art exhibits, film screenings, guided tours, panel discussions, food and drink, interactive demos, stage shows, comedy nights, flashmobs, storytimes – some for adults and some for children.


The Exploration Expo is a free, family-friendly event held March 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Centennial Olympic Park. The event keeps science moving at the speed of light with more than 100 interactive exhibits; hands-on experiments; mind-blowing demos; and a full line-up of live science-themed performances―plus so much more. Events will not only be held at museums, universities and institutions, but also in our neighborhoods – at our libraries, community centers and parks. It’s exciting to collaborate to take science “outside” the normal confines of our daily work and show it at work in “the real world.”


Atlanta’s Festival is part of a national movement. They’re part of the Science Festival Alliance and join select cities across the country to support the mission of fostering a professional community dedicated to more and better science and technology festivals.
