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?

Music & Arts Upgrade Your Sounds November Deal You Don't Want To Miss! #MusicArtTips

There’s little doubt that learning to play a musical instrument is great for developing brains. Learning a musical instrument is a superb opportunity for children to express themselves creatively while picking up a new skill. My son joined the school band during sixth grade and I love seeing how much this experience has changed him. 

He now has less feelings of anxiety, has a greater control of his emotions and is more focused and attentive during his classes. His ability to memorize and remember information is off the roof. Is almost as if playing an instrument has all of the sudden optimized his brain. He loves music so much that he joined a second band (pep band) and guess who is always traveling back and forth making sure that is on time for the games or school concerts? Yep, me.

High school awaits next year and he already made the commitment to join the marching band. He plays the flute, and normally this is the kind of instrument that you need to buy or rent since wind instruments require you to blow through them and any remnants of food or sugar from beverages are blown through your flute. 

Luckily for us we had a Music & Arts store close to home and we opted to get a beginners student flute through the rent-to-own program. After less than two years of renting we were able to keep the flute. We are now planning to do a small upgrading with a new headjoint or lip plate. This option is ideal for players who are not yet ready to advance to a new flute, or advanced players who want to take it to their playing to the next level while keeping their current body. Purchasing a better headjoint will drastically improve the brilliance of the tone and the responsiveness of the flute.

Beginner instruments offer curious new students easy introductions to the experience of making music. But as students strive to develop stronger technique and improve sound quality, a beginning instrument may start to hinder that progress. A progressing student will eventually require a better instrument – a step-up instrument. Typically, a step-up instrument is crafted from better-quality materials, features improved action from finer construction and is designed for consistency across practice and performance. These elements help to improve sound, technique and build a student’s confidence which will help drive long-term success.
