Award winning resume writer Grant Cooper, owner of Strategic Resumes in New Orleans, spoke to Job Corps trainees in the Crescent City recently on employment search skills and offered each of the 40 trainees in attendance free resume service.
“I wanted to communicate to the students that there are two elements to improving their job search,” said Cooper. “One element is making sure you have the right resume, cover letter and paperwork to open the door. The other element is being sure that you present yourself correctly and that’s a combination of how you dress for interviews, how you represent yourself when you contact and speak with companies and your interview skills.”
Added Cooper: “These Job Corps students are the future of New Orleans and I live in New Orleans only walking distance from Audubon Park. If New Orleans is to continue to grow, these are the kind of young people that we will need to stay in our city.”
Mr. Cooper’s firm has been ranked as the #3 online resume provider in the U.S. (out of literally thousands of firms), and is the only resume writing firm recommended by the award-winning national website, CollegeGrad.com and the book, The College Grad Job Hunter, available in all Barnes & Noble and Borders bookstores nationwide.
