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.

DeKalb Choral Guild Spring Concert at Fernbank Planetarium


The DeKalb Choral Guild, in partnership with the Jim Cherry Memorial Planetarium, presents a choral concert inside the Fernbank Planetarium on Friday, May 8th, 2015, at 8:00 pm. “Sure Stars Shining” is a concert of songs about the night sky presented under the night sky. Stars will twinkle and dance on Fernbank’s dome, and other images of the universe will appear and recede, while the guild sings songs highlighting this stellar theme. Of particular note on the program is Eriks Esenvald’s “Stars,” which uses wine glasses as accompaniment. Other works include David Dickau’s “Stars I Shall Find,” Randall Thompson’s “Choose Something Like a Star,” and Imant Raminsh’s “In the Night We Shall Go In.”

The evening’s highlight will be a song composed specifically for this chorus and concert by N. Grant Pfeifer. This work, titled “The Voiceless Silence,” is a setting of poetry by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Pfeifer’s “A Star,” which sets poetry by Grace Noll Crowell to music, is also on the program.

The DeKalb Choral Guild is now in its 37th year and attracts singers from across metropolitan Atlanta to perform 4-5 concerts per season under the direction of music director and conductor Mary Evelyn Root. “Sure Stars Shining, Songs of the Night Sky under the Night Sky” promises to be a unique and enjoyable evening of choral music and starry contemplation. Tickets are $5 for ages 18 and under, $7.50 ages 19 and up, and available at www.starsongs.bpt.me
