Get Help Creating Your Resume! (pg. 2)

Take a look at these great resume building tips and job application help for teens.
Resume Help

Activities

Here, you can list any extracurricular activities, clubs, committees or councils you have participated in - in or outside of school. If you're in the school band, drama club, on a sports team, or a member of student council, etc. these are things that impress future employers. If you haven't participated in any activities, don't make them up - people will find out and this is worse than if you didn't have any to begin with.

Skills

Can you play an instrument or use a computer? Do you work well with others? This is the part of your resume where you can show off a bit and list all of your features that you think will be an asset if you get the job. If you're really good at multi-tasking (think chewing gum and walking at the same time), then list that. Be creative, but don't go overboard.

References

Now, if you've never had a job before, you won't have work references. You can, however, include references from teachers, coaches, or any other person of authority who is willing to help you out. Make sure you include all the information needed to contact your references and make sure to ask permission to use someone as a reference before doing so.

Have You Ever Had a Job?

  • No, I've never had a job before.
  • I've done some babysitting - does that count?
  • I work on weekends at the mall.
  • My 'rents won't let me work.

I think the title is fairly self explanatory. I don't know how to explain self harm scars and cuts to my friends (don't even get me started on my father) without having them completely freak out on me or think I'm a total basket case. I can't hide most the scars and cuts given their placement. I'd also like to know how to explain it to a friend's parent bc I know that will be a problem too. - (Note: I'm not insane. Just have been a tough time lately and I snapped under too much pressure. I'm not a danger to myself anymore. End of story.) - I don't like to go into detail when discussing my self harm and why I did it, but I know my friends are very inquisitive like their parents. I just want to know how to ride out the conversation and would appreciate any help in the matter. Thanks!

But you're not in your right mind when you make that decision, or even think about it seriously.Bullying can lead to suicide, but I urge everyone thinking about it to also think of the good in their life. Exactly, because, I promise, life gets better. Even when it seems like it's not, it does, in the darkest part of your life, you'll find the hope that you lost.

TALK TO SOMEONE... it really helps to understand and get the emotions out and get help.[Jordan I hopes you doesnt mind but I moved to the Dear Dish It and done the sticky toffee :angel] It's okay Huge, I didn't know which one to put it on, because I knew you'd move it if I got it wrong, but thank you.
