On Wednesday, March 29 the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce sponsored its annual resume assistance event. Passport to Employment is a free service whereby a team of experts assist candidates with creating and critiquing resumes, polishing their interview skills and enhancing their job search strategies.

Each attendee received personalized professional advice, assistance, and tools from Chamber member volunteers. “Passport to Employment enables those seeking employment to be one step ahead of their competition by having a professional resume in hand when they apply for a job,” remarked Chamber Board Chair Trey Ragsdale, External Affairs, at Kaiser Permanente.

Passport to Employment is coordinated by the Chamber’s Workforce Development Council in partnership with several businesses and organizations in the county. Attendees walked away with a freshly polished resume and interviewing skills they can take with them to enhance their career search.

The mission of the Cherokee County Chamber, a Georgia Certified Chamber of Commerce, is to promote business, to expand the economy, and enrich the community.
