How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

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.

5 Reasons Why Everyone Needs To Watch Real Women Have Curves at The Aurora Theatre


Las Mujeres Verdaderas Tienen Curvas


Real Women Have Curves is a stage play by Josefina Lopez and is set in a tiny sewing factory in East Los Angeles in September 1987. It's marked by the issues of gender politics and the Latina immigrant experience. The story is told from the point of view of Ana, the youngest employee at the factory. Ambitious and bright, Ana yearns to go to college, but doesn't have the money. The action follows the course of a summer at the factory, as the women talk about their lives, loves and deepest desires while attempting to meet impossible production deadlines. Recommended for teens and adults interested in culture, Real Women Have Curves plays the Aurora stage April 10-26. This is the first time this play is presented in Georgia. 


If you have never seen this wonderful play, here are 5 reasons why you should bring a friend, and watch it before it's gone:
  1. Humanizes the immigrant struggle and emphasizes the contributions immigrants have made to American society and their economic growth.
  2. Teaches about loving your body and embracing positive body image.
  3. Raw, poignant and reflective comedy.
  4. The play is in Spanish making it more authentic (English super-titles available).
  5. Sends message to girls about pushing for a higher education and achieving their wildest dreams.
