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?

Support Our Troops During The Holidays With Marie Callender's Comforts From Home Project



Home Is Where You Feel Happy and Cozy After a Long Journey


Marie Callender’s creates homemade meals and desserts made with high-quality ingredients and signature special touches that your family can slow down and savor together. 
When you are a military family like us you know you do everything within your reach to send comforts from home to your soldier no matter how far they are. Sometimes is the smallest gestures that bring them the biggest joy. 

This is why we are so happy to see how Marie Callender’s announced the return of the Comforts from Home Project, a partnership with the United Service Organizations (USO) that’s dedicated to bringing the heartwarming feelings, flavors, and favorites of home to those who miss it most.


To help bring the comforts of home to the brave men and women of the U.S. military, Marie Callender’s donation to the USO will provide electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world.


From September 1, 2015 through January 29, 2016, consumers can help give to the USO Operation Celebration program by entering the on-pack code from one of the more than 51 million specially-marked Marie Callender’s frozen meals or desserts at ComfortsFromHome.com



Each code entered online equals a $0.50 donation to the USO. For every entry by 1/29/2016 of an 8-digit code found on participating products, Marie Callender’s will donate $.50 to the USO Operation Celebration program. Guaranteed minimum donation: $100,000. Maximum donation: $300,000. Limit 5 code entries per person/computer each day. Valid in U.S. Only. 


The USO Operation Celebration program is dedicated to provide a "home away from home" for our deployed troops stationed around the world to make sure every holiday, small or large, is celebrated.

The program ensures that our troops have a place to celebrate every holiday, with or without their families, bringing the comforts of home that can often be taken for granted, such as seasonal meals, company, entertainment and a chance to relax away from the stress of active service.




Last year, with consumers’ overwhelming support, Marie Callender’s brought care packages to a very deserving group of servicemen and women stationed overseas through a $250,000 donation to the USO2GO program. In addition to the on-pack promotion, the Comforts from Home Project will partner again with Scripps Networks to give deserving military families touches of home within 3 popular TV shows: Guys Grocery Games (Food Network), Kitchen Crashers (HGTV and DIY Network) and Hello Goodbye (Travel Channel).
