A growing need exists for job applicants in the modern job market to be increasingly innovative in an effort to capture the attention of hiring managers. VRezzio is tapping into that need. VRezzio’s chief goal is to provide job seekers with a creative video-based resume platform designed to make their job applications distinctive from those of other job applicants. This Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based startup company was founded in June 2015 by Jessica Sarkisian, a recent graduate of Drexel University who earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, specializing in marketing.
During her time at Drexel University, Sarkisian experienced various working environments, with all of them focusing on the area of social media marketing. Thus, she had the chance to build her experience in social media, ranging from adding to already established marketing plans to creating a marketing plan from scratch.
Sarkisian completed one marketing internship at Century 21 Advantage Gold from September to December 2014; there, she created marketing packets for homes for sale and worked closely with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the MLS to input adjustments in an online database. She also served as an intern with the Meyer Capital Group from February to April 2014, where she generated content and ideas for client communications in addition to outlining ideas for a corporate LinkedIn page.
Sarkisian was also an outreach intern at Cradles to Crayons from March to September 2013. This internship allowed her to plan and execute offsite drives and donations with partner institutions as well as take part in corporate events to promote the company’s mission and volunteer opportunities. A marketing internship at Bridgeline Digital additionally afforded Sarkisian the opportunity to organize marketing events and assist with sales demonstrations as well. While at Drexel University, Sarkisian played on the varsity soccer team, where she mastered how to work effectively in a team setting in addition to learning time management. The combination of her education and real-world training hugely contributed to her passion and ability to develop VRezzio for the benefit of job seekers worldwide.
