Organization is Key
Guest author Lynne Saunders wrote an article titled, “Tools for Your Job Search Kit,” in the September issue of the Townelaker. Her article is full of advice for those who are currently in the market for a job. Some of the suggestions shared, such as cleaning up social media profiles, go hand in hand with topics that will be addressed at the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce Resumes and More workshop. Additionally, there are age-old tips that have been proven successful over time. These include:
- Professional outfits
- Customizing a resume
- Making sure you have appropriate identification on hand
