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?

Atlanta Nonprofit Hosts Enchanted Purse Exchange to Raise Funds for Mentoring Program

Atlanta Nonprofit Hosts Enchanted Purse Exchange to Raise Funds for Mentoring Program

The Enchanted Closet Inc., a volunteer-run nonprofit organization serving teenage girls from low-income households across metropolitan Atlanta, will host the Enchanted Purse Exchange on Saturday, August 23, 2015 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the TMAC-Lindbergh City Center, 573 Main St NE Atlanta, GA 30324. The purpose of the event is to raise funds to support the operation of the GIRL$ Program, a program defined as a Service-Learning Program designed to increase the self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency of middle and high school girls, residing in metropolitan Atlanta. The event cost is a tax-deductible donation of $25. Attendees will have the opportunity to snag a great purse, save money and support the empowerment, and social and professional enhancement of the girls in metropolitan Atlanta.

About the Enchanted Purse Exchange

On average, a woman owns 3-5 purses at any given time. Women spend an average of $100 - $150 per year on handbags and often times much more. Most women love purses because of the way they make them feel. Purses provide a foundation for the image that women want to broadcast to the world, and allow women to express everything they are or want to be. A great purse instantly changes a woman’s mood for the better. Many once loved purses are packed away once they are replaced by others. In the spirit of “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, the 
Enchanted Purse Exchange will provide an opportunity for attendees to freshen up their handbag game by exchanging purses they no longer carry. Allpurses entered into the exchange are expected to meet a certain standard of quality and should be in good condition; free from excessive markings, with functioning straps and closures. Purses will be tagged based on the estimated value level and attendees can make a selection to exchange from purses at the same level of thepurse they submitted. Attendees wishing to exchange at levels higher than that of the purse they submitted will be required to complete a value level upgrade. Tickets are available at

About the Enchanted Closet GIRL$ Program

Founded in 2003, with the mission to physically, mentally, and emotionally outfit girls from low-income families through programs that prepare them for social and professional milestones, the Enchanted Closet is a 100% volunteer run nonprofit service organization that benefits the girls of metropolitan Atlanta and other cities as far as Macon and Savannah, Georgia. Realizing that many girls from low income families have obstacles to overcome, the GIRL$ Program was designed to help increase the self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-sufficiency of girls. The Enchanted Closet aims to build their confidence, equip them with education, exposure, support, and opportunities. Girls attend monthly sessions which focus on identified critical needs, economic and social entrepreneurship, and community service. By focusing on these areas, the organization has seen a reduction in high-risk behavior that contributes to low academic performance/school dropout, teen pregnancy, sexual exploitation, abuse, STDs and other things that adversely affect the lives of teens, their families, and the community. An average of 500 girls living in 14 plus metropolitan Atlanta counties are served each year through the Prom Dress Giveaway and GIRL$ Programs. The organization has served nearly 6000 since 2003.
