Did your teen miss the Historic Presidential Moment? It isn't too late.

1st Historic Teachable Moment in 12 years

These moments don’t happen often, thank goodness.  Think back to 2006.  That’s the last presidential funeral we’ve had in the United States until now. (Reagan, 2004 and Nixon, 1994).

Do you remember when they would wheel in those carts with tv’s on them during school so we could see the moon landings, the rocket launches, and other historic moments?  We do. 

But perhaps your teen’s school didn’t or doesn't do this.  It isn't too late to capture the teachable moment for your teen.  

Did you know that . . . 

nearly every detail planned for a Presidential funeral is historical?

  • Who had the first 16 cannon salute?  President George Washington
  • The first president to die in office?  President Harrison, 1841

We grew up with paper resumes.   Those word-heavy depressing things.  Are they as effective these days?  No.  Paper resumes still have their place, but to stand out?  Go virtual.  You knew this addition/change was coming. 

How can our teens take advantage of “Virtual Resumes”?

First, let’s define what these are.  They use all the capabilities of the online world and the amazing graphic tools we have available to us these days.

The Virtual Resume is just that:  a visual overview of an applicant’s capabilities using charts, graphics, infographics, and even video.
