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?

Easy No-sew Recycled Dog T-shirt DIY For Your MVP (Most Valuable Pooch) #MyPetMyStar

As an avid animal lover, and Georgia SPCA volunteer I'm thrilled to be able to partner with Kroger and Purina Dog Chow Natural, for today’s Easy No-sew Recycled Dog T-shirt DIY. Dogs and cats are blurring the lines between “pets” and people. People like me, consider dogs and cats as individuals. My “pets” play an unique role in my family. They are part of our emotional life and their role is much deeper than just companionship. They are family and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Having four "pets" at home can add up quickly, especially if you are also bringing dogs and cats from the shelter to foster. In order to save some money I have learned a few tricks and today's DIY is one of my favorites.

My long hair Chihuahua has a chronic skin condition that makes him itchy all the time and is causing him to loose hair on the back. When it gets really bad, the vet gives him a cortisone injection and that seems to do the trick. When he wears shirts for some reason it seems to calm him down so I always try to have a few around the house. Now, doggie shirt are not cheap even if you buy them on clearance. Someone at the shelter once told me to just buy a baby onesie and cut it. You can find baby onesies on clearance everywhere. 

They usually come in packets of three. For the price of one regular price shirt you can make easily 3 doggie shirts from your one onesie packet.

The tutorial is quite simple.

Materials you will use:
  • 1 onesie (I have a fat Chihuahua so I used 0-6 months size)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil or pen
Step 1: Fit the onesie on your dog inside out. If it comes with a graphic make sure the graphic is on the back of the dog).

Step 2: Trace with the pencil the areas where you want to cut it. I need mine to be really long on the back and short on the belly section.

Step 3: Cut the bottom half as neatly as possible since we are not sewing the hem and make sure you remove the tag.

These no-sew doggie shirts come really handy when you bathe your dogs, especially during winter.

Kroger is my favorite place not just do do my groceries but to get food and supplies for my cats and dogs. My family is a cast of colorful characters, and our dogs are no exception- as the MVP (Most Valuable Pooch) on my cast list, it's important that I really pamper and give them the star treatment everyday.
