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.

ICE's Summer Craft Market is Back




If you LOVE all things handmade you are going to love the ICE's Summer Craft Market on June 6- 7

ICE's mission is to provide opportunity to craft and vintage sellers. Educating shoppers on why they should buy handcrafted is a big component as well (Why? Because you are using your money to directly support someone using their talents to make a living, instead of a big box store and a chain of middle-men. What you buy will be unique instead of contributing to the sameness threatening to dominate society today). Encouraging people to craft is another important aspect of ICE's mission through hands-on activities at our events, ICE Summer Camp for Kids, Craft Escape and bringing Make N Takes to other events such as Art on the BeltLine, Maiedae Mixer, Maker Faire Atlanta and the Decatur Book Fest. While their original goal was to create a market where they could sell their own creations, ICE has grown so much that Shannon and Christy barely have time to craft anymore, let alone sell at events. That's ok though. They like what ICE has become. Click here to learn more.
