Headlines Barber Shop Hosts Community Resume Party

Charlotte, NC

June 11, 2014

Headlines Barber Shop and AyresVoice partnered up to hold a Community Resume Party on June 28th from 10am – 2pm.  The event was held at Headlines Barber Shop at 5309 E. Independence Blvd in Charlotte.

AyresVoice is a company which offers a slew of services assisting its clientele in securing employment.  AyresVoice founder, Jai Cook, discounted her services so that she could assist a broader cross section of the community.  Cook states that the resumes are so important these days “since you cannot get in front of a hiring manager and physically hand them your resume.  Your resume has to be interested enough to set you apart from the crowd.” 

Resume party participants should brought a printed copy of their resume to the event.  For $20 they had a session with a certified professional resume writer.  During this session, their resume will be reviewed for errors.  In addition, there will be mock interviews and tips on dressing for success.  The first 5 participants receivde free consultations.  There was a contest conducted on Instagram.  The winner received a resume gift certificate for services valued at $150. 

Headlines Barber Shop started an initiative last year to give back to the Charlotte community on a regular basis.   Derrick Bennett, Headlines Barber Shop’s owner, feels that “with so many people having job issues, a resume is the first and most import step to securing a better job and a better life.  For this reason, I knew that partnering with AyresVoice for this event was a no brainer.” 

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank on Spratt Street in Charlotte.
