If your child doesn’t have any previous working experience, they might wonder what they’re going to include in a resume. This is where volunteer work, school internships and extra-curricular and school participation come in handy. And what the teenager resume might be lacking in real work experience, a well-presented resume and a pleasant and willing personality will go a long way to helping your teenager find a job.
