    Business Communication and Resume Writing

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7

    My educational background has given me a solid understanding of organizational communication and human relations. While studying for my bachelor of arts, I developed and co-facilitated six workshops of various subjects, including intergenerational communication in the workplace and transformational learning. Studying for my master of human relations helped refine my understanding of human and organizational behavior, thus enabling me to better assess community needs and foster relationships between employee and employer. As a Job Placement Coordinator, I have become proficient at writing cover letters and resumes, as well as communicating diligently through written word with potential employers and local businesses. Most importantly, I am a life-long learner, seeking to always improve and never remain static. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to continue to develop professionally.

    Experienced Consultant, Writer and Graphic Medic

    United States - Last active: 03/28/2014 - Tests: 29 - Portfolio: 16

    Have you ever hired a designer to create the perfect work but they didn’t quite capture your vision? Did you find the ideal freelancer but they had to bail out before finishing the project? Were you satisfied with your contractor but the agreement didn’t include revisions and you need a change made yesterday? I can fix that for you, stat. My specialty is doctoring, editing, retouching, re-creating and otherwise improving designs using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I draw my own elements, find great stock and match your layout to make that almost-perfect image into exactly what you were looking for. That’s not all though. I also write high quality, well-researched keyword-rich content, edit and proofread existing written work, offer exceptional customer experience support and training, and provide many other solutions for the enrichment of your business. If you experience the occasional emergency that requires an experienced graphic medic or if your workload is overflowing and you need someone who knows how to triage, save me as a favorite or hire me today!
