What one piece of advice would Dixie give to job seekers out there?
“Develop a concise, descriptive, accomplishment-based branding statement/60-second commercial. You’ll get a lot of mileage out of that content. It can be used in cover letters, resume career profile and online applications in the “comments box,” and of course in interviews when asked to “tell a little about yourself.”
