Recent graduates and first-time job applicants benefit from entry-level resumé services, which translate past academic achievements, volunteer services, and tales of wildly successful childhood lemonade stands into assets desirable in the workplace. The company's professional resumé service helps applicants with several years of work experience to climb corporate ladders into exclusive executive treehouses, focusing on technical qualifications and the ways in which workers have thrived in previous positions. Executive-level resumés expound upon career achievements in detail, highlighting qualities such as leadership skills, management know-how, and the ability to properly rub an elbow. BizTraffik also creates online resumés with unique domain names, an asset in the digital age in which human eyeballs, like moths, gravitate toward the light of computer screens. Custom colors and styling give online resumés an eye-catching individuality, increasing visibility to potential employers.

If you've ever marveled at a photo of a NASA space shuttle as it rockets into the stratosphere, chances are you're looking at the work of Frank Jackowiak. The expert photographer counts NASA among the many clients for whom he captures inimitable images. Others?including Canon, Chrysler, Nikon, Sears, EAA- Experimental Aircraft Association, and Air & Space? have led him to hone the expert skills he now uses to guide fledgling shutterbugs at his Naperville studio. Here, Jackowiak taps into his experiences teaching college courses to teach students how to work their digital or manual cameras, starting with basic camera operation, and progressing to topics such as composition, lighting, and squeezing one eye shut. In doing so, he also helps unearth each student's inner artist, encouraging them to pursue whichever type of photography inspires them most.
Nestled in the historic Flanders House, Art Cube Studios contributes to the creative community in three distinct ways. First and foremost are their all-ages art classes, available in both one-off workshops and multiweek curriculums. The classes give participants the opportunity to work with media such as ceramics, acrylic paint, watercolors, the written word, and invisible ink for the extra shy. The studio’s second contribution is as a venue where students and resident artists can sell their work during a show. Finally, anyone in the community is welcome to rent out studio space by the hour, day, week, month, or pound.
