JOB SEEKERS ACADEMY is presented by Dot Wright, President of the Arvada Chamber of Commerce. As a business owner and entrepreneur, Ms. Wright has interviewed hundreds of job seekers in her professional career. “In this tough economic time” says Wright, “when I post an opening for a job, I receive literally hundreds of resumes. My eyes glaze over when I am sifting through them trying to figure out who to even interview.” Check out the JOB SEEKERS ACADEMYand find out how to get your resume past the gate keeper!
“I thought I had a great resume, but then I was told it looked boring. I thought 'I'm not boring!' That's when Dot Wright, President of the Arvada Chamber of Commerce, changed my entire job seeking and resume approach! After our meeting I went home and spent hours revamping, refreshing, and renewing my resume per her suggestions. After I finished, there was more color, depth, and flair that better represented me and my personality on paper, making me want to reapply to every job that I had already applied to during my job search. I did not reapply to every job, but I did reapply to some and when I put that final postage on the envelope or hit send on my email, I felt accomplished and excited for the person that employers would see shine through on paper.” – Bridget Hillseth, Job Seeker
