Andre Agassi Makes Appearance in Tyson's Corner

Besides being a world champion tennis player, Andre Agassi is a snowboarder, a cook, “20 + 20 years old,” and a humanitarian. Agassi appeared today at Fink's Jewelers in Tyson’s Corner to speak about his charity, the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education. This foundation has contributed $150 million to educational initiatives to date.

Agassi played in his first professional tournament when he was just 15 years old. What is the first thing that comes to Agassi’s mind when he thinks about tennis? Well, first of all “physical pain,” he joked after playing last night. But what tennis truly brings to mind for Agassi is the word “grateful.” He is grateful for what tennis taught him about himself, and he encouraged the children to push themselves in whatever they do because it will make them better people.

This was sent to us by Stratford University in Falls Church, VA:

With the unemployment numbers across America reaching alarming rates, millions of people are submitting resumes. Problem is, every time someone submits a resume, there are hundreds and sometimes even thousands more being submitted right along side it. So just how do you go about submitting a stellar resume that will get people to take notice (and call you for an interview)? The rules have changed for the 2010 resume, and keeping up with these changes may give you just the edge you need.

“Right now, people need something that is going to help get their resume noticed,” suggests John Thieman, Career Development Specialist at Stratford University. “In order to stand out and get those calls, you really have to pay attention to what is in your resume and who it is going to. While you will need to place more emphasis on the particulars, it can be done successfully.”
