Resume co. helps market job seekers
Q: What type of business do you operate – what do you sell, or what service do you provide?
A: At On the Way Resume we offer innovative and unique ways for job seekers to network and stand out from the crowd when searching for employment. Our first product, a resume snapshot sticker, adheres to a job seeker’s vehicle and lets everyone know they are looking for employment. The resume snapshot sticker allows potential employers to access a job seekers personalized online profile and view their complete resume. Our goal is to help frustrated job seekers market themselves in a whole new way while creating a buzz that will get them hired.
Q: Where are you from, and why did you decide to open your business in Summit County?
A: I graduated from Summit High School in 1993 and after attending college at the University of Northern Colorado moved to Denver where I started up various companies over the past few years. I’ve had the idea for On the Way Resume since 2001 and saw a need for an alternative employment service earlier this year when our economy began to enter into a recession. I currently split time operating On the Way Resume in Summit County and Denver, and enjoy getting up to the county every chance I get.
Q: What experience do you have in this field?
A: Our company is essentially a self marketing service to help job seekers create a personal networking buzz. Throughout this and my other business ventures I have gained valuable marketing and advertising skills necessary to the success of helping job seekers find employment.
Q: What sets your business apart from other similar businesses?
A: As most job seekers in this economy are finding out, websites like Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com are not necessarily helping people find jobs. The jobs on these sites are highly sought after and therefore are being inundated with hundreds and even thousands of similar job seeker resumes. The second problem is that some of the jobs on these sites are links to third party scam posts, and are a complete waste of time for a job seeker diligently looking for work. At On the Way Resume we are helping job seekers stand out from the competition and helping them market themselves in a very unique and innovative way with the help of our resume snapshot stickers.
Q: What types of customers do you hope to reach in Summit County?
A: In Summit County and around the globe we are striving to reach anyone that is currently unemployed or is looking to change careers. Our main target customer is a job seeker that is willing to think outside the box and not afraid to market themselves in a whole new way.
Q: Why did you choose to open where you did?
A: On the Way Resume is mainly an online service, and setting up headquarters in Summit County and Denver seemed like the obvious choice to remain close to family and friends.
Q: What are your plans for your company’s future?
A: Throughout the recession we hope to get as many people back to work as possible by giving them hope and alternative solutions to current job hunting tactics. In the future we are planning to develop our employee/employer match making service as well as offer a resume writing/critique service.
