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?

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. 

Tip #3: Fair food is everywhere. You can't escape it. The smell of the food roasting on the grill and the sweet aroma of the funnel cakes permeate the air. Bring a good amount of cash. Cash is king at the fair! Also, don't leave the fair without trying the fried Oreos. They are divine. You just can't eat one and EVERYONE will ask you for one. Learn to say no and make them buy their own. It's okay to be greedy every now and then, especially when it comes to fried fair food! 

Tip #4: The big Ferris Wheel is hands down the best ride to take panoramic pictures of the fair and the Atlanta skyline. Couples also love taking pictures kissing in the gondolas because the view is simply breathtaking and spectacular. 

Tip #5: The best deal when it comes to tickets is to get the unlimited ride wristbands. I recommend the unlimited ride wristbands mostly for the kids. If you are a parent that's just chaperoning, then just pay the regular admission entrance fee, and if you see a ride you might want to try out, then just pay for that one. Understand that the unlimited rides wristbands have a specific timeframe where they are valid. For example, Monday - Friday the wristbands are valid from 5 pm to 10 pm (not sold after 9 pm) and Saturday & Sunday 1 pm to 6 pm  (not sold after 5 pm). 

The Atlanta Fair is open until April 2, 2017. For tickets and more information please visit:
