Job Seeker Resources:
Peervuu is a Utah based startup that provides 1-1 mentoring and career advice… And they want to help those who have been recently laid off.
Peervuu recognizes that being laid off can be a difficult and overwhelming experience, and they want to do their part to help those in need. The team has graciously offered to open their service for FREE to any individuals who have recently been laid off.
With the help of Peervuu, those who have been laid off can get the advice and assistance they need to navigate the job market and find their next opportunity. Whether it's help with updating a resume, networking, or preparing for job interviews, Peervuu's mentors are there to offer their expertise and support.
Peervuu is committed to helping others and giving back to their community. Their mentorship platform is just one way that they are working to make a positive impact in the lives of those who have been affected by the recent layoffs.
If you or someone you know has recently been laid off and could benefit from the support and guidance of a mentor fill out the following survey: https://slopes.live/PeervuuSurvey

Peervuu.com is a marketplace for micro-mentoring! On Peervuu, professionals can book time with each other to get answers to the work and career questions they have. All conversations are done asynchronously via video (like Marco Polo) so it's crazy convenient.
To help with the recent layoffs, Storyy has offered their content creation services to those in the Silicon Slopes community that are seeking employment.
Storyy (https://storyy.co) is a video content creation company that helps transform your videos into premium video content.
The Storyy team has offered to help candidates create a 45 second personal introduction (elevator pitch) video. These videos will help job seekers to highlight their skills and experience in a visually compelling way to stand out in a crowded job market.
"We understand that the current job market is tough, especially for those who have recently lost their jobs," said Connor Snyder, Co-Founder of Storyy. "That's why we want to do our part to help people put their best foot forward as they search for new opportunities. We believe that with the right tools, anyone can effectively showcase their strengths and land their dream job."
To take advantage of this offer, individuals simply need to visit this link, https://storyy.co/silicon-slopes/, and fill out the form. A member of the Storyy team will then be in touch to schedule a consultation and get started on creating the perfect introduction video.
Don't let a layoff hold you back from finding your next great opportunity.
