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?

Bluebird Patch Teens: "I and You" Review

Well hello there Bluebird Patch teens! I'm thrilled to share with you my thoughts on “I and You” a highly sentimental and compelling play at the Aurora Theatre. Written by Lauren Gunderson and directed by Aurora’s Director of Education Jaclyn Hofmann, I and You chronicles the unlikely relationship formed by popular jock Anthony and chronically ill Caroline, when he shows up to her house unexpectedly with waffle fries, a beat-up book and a homework assignment to explore Walt Whitman’s poem “Song of Myself.” 

As a teenager, I can personally relate the current high school struggle of homework and group projects. Throughout the day, many emotions come between the two characters, both good and bad. As the story progresses we find many shocking things about both characters and let's just say the ending of the play will leave you speechless. I don't want to spoil it for ya, but the play has a twist worthy of a Nicholas Spark book. I'm telling you this play is a masterpiece. You need to bring your friends and watch it before it goes away. The actors are so incredibly talented and the beauty about Aurora Theare it that it offers the audience an intense theatrical experience like any other. You feel like you are part of the play because you are so close to the stage. This play is teen approved and teen recommended! Until my next adventure, I'm signing off. Thanks for stopping by!
