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?

Tropical Smoothie Café® Asks Public to Nominate Deserving Families to Attend Camp Sunshine At Sebago Lake



Children With Life Threatening Illnesses and Their Families Offered Much Needed Escape

ATLANTA, GA – To help celebrate their 10-year partnership with CampSunshine at Sebago Lake, Tropical Smoothie Café announced the launch of “Share The Sunshine” campaign to identify and send deserving families to the upstate-Maine camp that offers a fun experience to children with life-threatening illnesses. Camp Sunshine is the only program in the nation offered year-round with the distinction of having been designed to serve the entire family in a retreat model. The program includes on-site medical and psychosocial support.

Typically, it takes about $2,500 to cover the costs of sending a family to Camp Sunshine,” said Jennie Hong, Senior Director of Brand Marketing and Strategy for Tropical Smoothie Café. “We’ve been supporting Camp Sunshine through nearly $4 million in donations over the past 10 years… but we wanted to do more. That’s why we’re asking everyone to please share stories – either their own, a friend’s, or a family member’s in the hopes of giving them a much-needed bright spot in their lives.”



To make a nomination and help Tropical Smoothie Café share the sunshine, fans can simply go online to www.TropicalSmoothieCafe.com/ShareTheSunshine to submit a family’s name and share a story of why they could benefit from a Camp Sunshine Trip. 


Tropical Smoothie Café will select at least ten families from the submitted nominations to attend the camp. Selected families will be notified following the completion of National Flip Flop Day, which takes place on Friday, June 17th. National Flip Flop Day has become an annual tradition in the Tropical Smoothie Café system where Jetty Punch, a strawberry banana smoothie, is given away to everyone who walks through the cafe doors in flip flops from 2p – 7p. All the brand asks is that guests make a donation to the Camp Sunshine effort. Last year the brand raised $1 Million and looks forward to another successful year on its tenth anniversary.

How do you make a difference,” asked Mike Rotondo, Chief Executive Officer for Tropical Smoothie Café. “Be bold, do the things that people say can’t be done and stop at nothing to achieve your goals. This year we set a goal to raise a million dollars to support as many Camp Sunshine families as possible and I have no doubts we will do just that on this milestone anniversary.”
