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?

IKEA Atlanta’s Traditional Swedish Julbord (Holiday Smörgåsbord) Buffet, Dec 11th

Tickets Available for $16.99 / $4.99 Kids 12 & Under; Discounted Prices for IKEA FAMILY* Members

Atlanta, GA (December 3, 2015) – IKEA invites the public to celebrate this holiday season with a traditional Swedish Julbord buffet in our IKEA Restaurant on Friday, Dec. 11, 2015. The all-you-can-eat smörgåsbord will include several courses of Swedish holiday favorites such as holiday ham, smoked salmon, meatballs with lingonberries, and much more. Tickets are available for only $16.99 per person or $4.99 for kids 12 & under. IKEA FAMILY members’ tickets are $12.99 per person or $2.99 for kids 12 & under.

Julbord is a classic Christmas dinner in Scandinavian countries. The word “Julbord” is made up of two parts: “Jul,” meaning Yule (synonymous with Christmas) and “Bord,” meaning table. The traditional, three-course Swedish Julbord is a highlight of Swedish cuisine, consisting of local and family specialties. The spread typically begins with a variety of fish as the first course, cold sliced meats such as ham as the second course, and warm dishes such as Swedish meatballs as the third course.

“In many homes, conversation and togetherness begins over food,” says Jill Matherson, IKEA Atlanta Store Manager. “We invite our customers to enjoy a meal with us. Taste a piece of Sweden during our classic Swedish holiday tradition!”

The IKEA Julbord all you can eat buffet menu includes**:

Assorted varieties of herring
Gravad lax with mustard sauce
Poached salmon
Red beet salad
Swedish cucumber salad
Swedish potato salad
Christmas ham
Prinskorv sausages
Meatballs with lingonberries

Seating is limited, so those who are interested are encouraged to purchase tickets early in the IKEA Restaurant, Bistro, or Swedish Food Market. Seating times are: 4-5:30pm, 5:30-7pm, and 7-8:30pm.

For those that are not able to make it to the event, they can still bring Swedish holiday traditions home! Visit the Swedish Food Market to purchase select items from the Julbord menu, including KÖTTBULLAR Swedish meatballs, or to explore, find and try other Swedish favorites – like gingerbread cookies.
