Your Teen Can Join the Resume Revolution

Zoom and Google Hangouts. Telephones on our wrists. AirBnb.  Taxi vs. Uber vs. Lyft.   Movies played on nearly everything you own.  Turn your house off and on miles from home,

and. . .

A Resume Revolution.  

With today's current challenges, everything seems upside down.  But one thing that each teen can do is prepare their resume - in the new digital age.
