Top 3 Ailing Comments I Hear from Job Seekers in Clarksville That A Good Resume Would Cure
Clarksville, Tennessee, is one the fastest growing cities in the nation and every single day, I see job seekers on Facebook in many groups asking the dumbest questions about their job interests that a good resume would solve. Consider these comments:
“Who is hiring? Preferably not fast food”.
“ISO any places in Clarksville hiring for $14 an hour or higher”.
“Who is hiring in Clarksville? No food places please and it had to be flexible with school”. (Poor grammar left intentionally as these are actual real comments from job seekers)
“Any jobs hiring that you can start ASAP”?
When you have a great resume, and inquire about jobs, you speak as a knowledgeable, skills laden person ready to help companies in a specified industry as you know that companies want workers who want to be there. There are well over 1000 different types of jobs to have in any one city. I want to encourage each job seeker to understand how to seek specific jobs based on their interest, aptitude, and values.
For those who need to learn about various jobs, let’s sit down and have a coaching session.

Mr. Adolph Agbeko Yao Dagan and his wife Kafui wanted to open up an international market after his military career in 2009. Dagan, as he is called by his fellow veterans, hails from Daganhoé in Togo, West Africa, a name that means Dagantown. Dagan African Market celebrates its first year in operation on July 20, 2020, the day of his birth. Looking back over the year long journey, the family celebrate and acknowledge their long hard journey to offer their 1000 square foot facility to customers who have traveled more than 500 miles from as far as Alabama, Kentucky, and all parts Missouri and Illinois to frequent their establishment offering authentic foods, clothing, beauty products, artwork, and other great finds from the people of the Caribbean, Africa, and other international favorites.
Trained as a high school French teacher, the family saved thousands of dollars from 2009 to 2019 to start a business in the heart of a thriving community populated with active duty military and their families as well as retired Veterans. Dagan and his family worked hard in order to prepare to take ownership of a premier African market that fulfilled the needs and expectations for the community of more than 250,000 resident in the Fort Campbell, Kentucky, Clarksville, Tennessee community. And all of the struggle turned out to be worth it as his company,Dagan African Market, became the first African market in the city. One of the challenges in a military town is that many can open businesses, not many can maintain a revenue generating establishment.
Truthfully, as Dagan continues to climb up the ladder of success, he and his family fully expect to become millionaires within 10 years. As they plan to open up a restaurant and increase their inventory. He and his wife and their children are also looking to incorporate an online store and even a direct custom order service for drums, wood pieces, and other original organic African artifacts.
With the families good reputation and dedication to customer service, Dagan and his family caught the attention of people who said, “These are a good family“. The family hopes to become the largest African and International Store in the Tennessee and Kentucky area. They are passionate about serving patrons and veterans from the islands, Africa, the Caribbean, Spanish and European nations. Dagan says if you want to succeed, you have to work very hard.
As a poor citizen of Togo, West Africa, Kafui and Adolph treasure their homeland and support a church and school in their village of Dagan and Togo. They also collect school supplies, medical supplies, and clothes to send back to Africa and plan to establish a hospital and additional schools once their business hits the one-million-dollar revenue mark.
