Veterans of the banking, marketing, and corporate worlds, Resume Workshop's three founders repeatedly interviewed ideal job candidates who struggled to articulate why they were qualified. To remedy the trend, they draw upon their years hiring for Fortune 500 companies such as J.P. Morgan Chase and Barclays to dispense step-by-step assistance to prospective employees.
Whether clients are applying for entry-level work or vying for a spot in upper management, instructors make sure their resumes and cover letters clearly and persuasively demonstrate their aptitude and are free of errors. During group or one-on-one sessions, job interview coaches prepare students for the questions they can expect and reveal what types of answers stand out to employers. For following up after an interview, Resume Workshop also imparts strategies that are more effective than the tradition of mailing a thank-you ham.
The nonprofit Saferide America pursues a single, noble goal of keeping drunk drivers off the road. The volunteer-based program dispatches licensed drivers to bars, restaurants, and parties across Atlanta to pick up impaired clients and return them—and their cars—safely home. Divided into three branches of service, Saferide maintains on-call cars that cruise the streets from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m., daily, professional chauffeurs who pilot customers on preplanned nights out, and drivers at parties to drive home multiple guests. The organization raises funds through donations, and contributes money to children who have lost parents to drunk driving.

Within the onsite optical lab at each Eyeworks location, opticians perform virtually any act of optical alchemy, whether forging new bifocals, mending bent or broken frames, or glazing lenses in protective coatings that cut down on glare and scratches. Armed with a knack for style, opticians cull from the stores' collection of designer frames?including popular models from Dakota Smith and Lafont and exclusive lines from Soho and Okki?to match each customer with a look to suit their personality and facial structure. Before either can get to work, however, optometrists conduct comprehensive eye exams, helping patients maintain healthy, focused vision by honing new prescriptions and diagnosing potential diseases such as cataracts or early-onset googly eyes.
