Congratulations, Jade!

After working with MSCCN's Jenna Weakly for three months, Jade accepted a position with TaxSlayer as a Social Media Specialist !

Hiring Challenge: Based on the number of job applications I completed each week and the subsequent number of responses I received from recruiters and hiring managers, I realized that my resume did not reflect the range of my qualifications, credentials, and experience. I knew that I needed help to fix these issues.

Assistance Received: When I started working with MSCCN, I received assistance regarding online job search techniques, tips, and tricks, and my employment specialist also made sure to review and edit my resume and LinkedIn® profile. She also helped me with my interview preparation and we completed a mock job interview.

Results: By working with MSCCN, I was able to create a more professional resume and gained greater confidence during the interview office. Beyond those skills, by the end of the process, I also received a job offer.

Value of Experience: Not only is the job market more competitive than ever before, but the interview process is so lengthy that it is easy to lose confidence and get discouraged. My employment specialist, Jenna, nudged me along, edited my resume, and gave me helpful feedback on my interviewing skills. The result: I felt prepared and well-equipped going into my interviews, and I was able to get a job.
