Congratulations to our 2021 Scholarship Winner: Darnell Davis
The 2020 – 2021 academic year was unprecedented with the COVID pandemic that crippled our country and deeply impacted education. Most schools and universities were forced to shut their doors and move to an online format. This made the scholarship applications interesting since there were several months that experienced a significant decline in applicants.
However, Darnell’s application and essay stood out. He presented a very compelling idea of how automation will affect the job market over the next decade and wrote that most applicant systems will be fully automated to where they conduct the initial screening and filter through the piles of resumes to choose the top 20 that best represent the person needed for the job. Darnell continued by writing that these fully automated hiring systems will save companies tens of thousands of dollars since they can streamline their staff and not have unnecessary human resources positions. Finally, Darnell wrote that automation will make hiring a much easier and effective process since the advanced algorithms in the future will better predict employee performance before they even start working.
Empire Resume continues to help many thousands of people with their resume packages and offers detailed guidance on applying for jobs and mastering the interview. If Darnell’s predictions are accurate, we’ll have to remain current on all trends and optimize our resume packages to ensure our clients pull up in the top 20. We wish the best of luck with Darnell’s academic career and are glad that our scholarship will help!
Congratulations to our 2020 Scholarship Winner: Mackenzie Sinon
Out of nearly 5,000 applicants this year, Mackenzie has been carefully chosen and selected based on her essay response, assessment of skills, and academic accomplishments. The decision was also based on creativity, drive, and clarity of writing. The values that Mackenzie possesses speaks through her love of education. She truly is a talented and unique individual. In her scholarship submission she mentions:
“When I think about how college graduates will apply for jobs in 20 years, I can’t help but think that resumes will look very different. Today, it is still commonplace to submit a paper resume. Many employers require you to also submit a resume online, especially if the application is online. I think the use of electronic resumes will become the norm. I see the use of paper resumes being phased out because many employers are moving to all online systems, so I think the submission of paper resumes will be frowned upon as paper records become no more. One major change that I think will be made is the use of videos. I think references will have to provide video recommendations and that job candidates will be required to submit a video that serves as a cover letter to explain their purpose for applying to the position. These videos will make resumes more personal and be able to save time for both the employer and employee by serving as a first interview of sorts. A final minor change that I see taking place is the inclusion of social media accounts. I think people will start to use social media to create a “brand” for themselves that expresses their views and work. I believe that employers will begin to expect every employee to have social media…”
Empire Resume has helped tens of thousands of people with their careers and are now excited to offer Mackenzie the opportunity to receive additional financial assistance for her educational needs. It has been a sincere pleasure learning more about Mackenzie and we wish her a happy and healthy rest of her college experience! Good luck with everything Mackenzie Sinon!
Congratulations to our 2019 Scholarship Winner: Dominic Davidson
After carefully reviewing thousands of applicant’s essays based on their creativity, drive, and clarity of writing, Dominic stood among the competition by providing a very comprehensive and insightful answer to the question “What would be your plan for marketing EmpireResume.com online with a $10,000 budget?”
Dominic outlined his strategy by saying he would first identify who our target market is, then spend more time on more active millennial social media platforms outside of Facebook. Next, Dominic researched some of our competitor’s and detailed some plans to help differentiate us. He also advised that we should develop partnerships with various colleges and universities to assist their career centers with student’s transitioning into the workforce.
Finally, Dominic suggested some great Google strategies and how to help increase our online presence. His recommendations were well thought out and he demonstrated the kind of thinking that companies look for today. He will clearly be an asset to anyone he works for!
