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?

It's Not Who We Love But #HowWeFamily

I have received information from the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post.


How does your family do the holidays? My family is always super busy during this time of the year. The kids are very involved at school (and outside the school), so almost every single weekend they are either volunteering at the museum, teaching (one is a black belt instructor) or doing community service with JROTC. 

If we are not doing any of those things you can find us touring colleges or attending their different community outreach events (like the recent Buzz on Biotechnology at Georgia Tech), and well let's not forget all the different media events we get invited on a daily basis. I swear I turn down 90% of them because we just don't have the time to do it. 

When it comes to how we celebrate the holidays, the reality is that is has always been just the four of us. We have no family in Georgia, so I always feel the pressure to make Christmas special so the kids don't feel sad about not having family or friends coming over for the holidays.

When it comes to Christmas, we always make the effort to do as many things as we can as a family. We go on road trips, watch Christmas plays, take a Christmas light tour, we put the Christmas tree together, bake cookies, go ice skating, zoom down the 400-foot hill at Snow Mountain and watch as many Christmas movies and specials as we can. I know it sounds so typical but that's #howwefamily and it works for us. 

To celebrate families like mine and yours, the TYLENOL® brand created the #HowWeFamily program which believes that family is not about who you love but how. The #HowWeFamily program showcases the story of 11 real American families, including one from spokesperson Gabrielle Union, which can be seen at

This holiday season, TYLENOL® is continuing to celebrate all families and how they come together during this special time of the year. The video is a compilation of real moments from real families that showcases joy, laughter, surprise, and unconditional love.
