For Job Seekers
In 2011 I had my resume critiqued by the Career and Employment Services Committee during AIHce. This was truly a memorable experience, as I was able to obtain a job with the new and improved resume. In 2014, I joined the Career and Employment Services Committee because I valued the service they that provided and felt that it really contributes to the Industrial Hygiene Career field for all career levels. In 2019 as the incoming chair to the committee I had my resume critiqued again by fellow members. I received some amazing feedback and also honed my skills as a resume critique person. At that time I also added my resume to the Career Advantage website, as the chair of the committee I should know how it works and I had started to casually look for a job. A couple weeks later I received an email from an HR recruiter from an amazing corporation that had seen my resume on the Career Advantage website. I will be starting a new career with a new company in August, and this committee really helped me to get where I am today. Thank you!"
