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.

Family Night Out at The Atlanta Fair: Useful Tips and Tidbits For Your Next Visit

Every year we always take the kids to visit the Atlanta Fair so it's fair to say we have some useful tips and tidbits for your next visit.
Tip #1: Always, check the weather and follow Atlanta Fair on Twitter. In the case of bad weather, the fair can close abruptly. Also, if you are unfamiliar with the weather in Atlanta it can be 70 degrees by 4 pm and 40 degrees by 9 pm so dress comfortable, but take in consideration it will get breezy and cold at night depending on the day.

Tip #2: Fairs starts to get super crowded as soon as the sun starts setting down. If you have small children (or impatient teens that dislike having to wait) the best time to visit is at 1 pm.
