After having concerns for a position, MarketStar’s recruiting department and the client decided to have me make a poster to post in the client’s local call-center, encouraging employees to refer their friends, family, etc.

I designed the following:

Recruiting Brochure

At the end of the summer of 2012, MarketStar’s recruiting department ran out of brochures to hand out at career fairs. I was tasked with developing a replacement product. With the help of two graphic designers in MarketStar’s marketing department, I produced the following: Recruiting Brochure

Information Flier

For a career fair in Boston, the organizer of the event asked each employer to submit a flier with general company information to be included in a packet the organizer was providing each registered attendee. I created this informational flier:

Because the attending hiring manager representing MarketStar worked specifically with Verizon Communications Inc., we only mentioned that client by name.

The difficulties of quantifying abstract skills

This article was originally posted Nov. 7, 2011 by the Huntsman School Blog.

When I was in high school, my mother, as a joke, gave me a t-shirt that said, “My mommy says I’m special.” I don’t often wear it in public.

I would wear a shirt that says, “My boss thinks I’m exceptional.” Or “outstanding.” Or “dependable,” “smart” and “talented.”

I would even consider wearing it to an interview. Especially if my boss signed it.

Okay, maybe not.

It seems like getting a job is just one struggle after another. Finding openings is hard enough. Standing out in relation to the crowd and actually getting an interview seems impossible at times.

Jeff Haden, a blogger for BNET, part of CBS’s interactive business network, came up with some suggestions on things businesses are looking for. Essentially, Haden says uniqueness, social smarts, adaptability, inquisitiveness, focus, the urge to tinker with the status quo, a desire to prove they (the employee) are right, public praise of others, and complaining only in private are some of the qualities businesses are looking for.

That’s great. My question is, “How do I show potential employers that I’m focused?” Or, “How do I show in my résumé that I have social skills?”

Any suggestions?
