What does a Job Advisor do?
My role as a job advisor is to assist out-of-state job seekers in their job search. This includes but is not limited to resume editing, sending job listings that may be of interest, and making important connections with both employers and members of the community. When relocating it is always nice to have connections already created before arriving.
What benefit does Dakota Roots provide job seekers?
There are several benefits Dakota Roots job advisors provide a job seeker. Some examples are job search assistance, resume writing, connections to employers, and job listings. However, I believe one of the most important benefits is having that connection with an actual person not just an in-personal, automated job search assistance account.
