In a competitive market, job candidates and employees with skill sets clearly in line with job descriptions are highly valued. Yet for job seekers, individuals with standout skills are more likely to get hired than those who only have the basics. One way to increase your status as a highly valued and sought after employee is to pursue becoming a notary.
A Notary is someone who has taken classes and passed a certification test to receive a Notary commission. Among other duties, they are able to verify the identity of individuals for the purposes of signing legal documents and forms. For companies whose clients must frequently present forms with a notarized signature, the convenience of an onsite notary is especially helpful and adds value to the services already provided.
