Show Notes & Links

On quantifying your work: put it in their perspective, be able to communicate your successes, make it all about the company. Also, get those figures wherever possible.
Present a business case rather than ask for stuff
On “creative” resumes: The content has to be solid, they don’t have to be infographics per se, inject your brand and personal style, show precision and attention to detail
“Your resume is the first piece in your portfolio” ← Click to Tweet
A resume is for 3–5 seconds. A hiring manager may only see your resume 30 seconds before they meet you.
On learning in preparation for quitting: present your case as a learner and leave the quitting part out, get the knowledge elsewhere by training outside the studio, take advantage of the business’s need for “utility men”
“Open the Kimono”
On declaring your [small] role on a project: be honest in describing your role and the other people involved, spin your part as a learning experience, describe the new skills learned, don’t lead with the shortcomings
Two (or Six) Degrees of Kevin Bacon
On reading books to learn business skills: learn the people skills (you’ll need them), also check out courses (online or off)

Big Spaceship, AKQA, RazorFish – well-known web design agencies
On building your portfolio as a young creative: Do self-initiated work, do projects for community organizations, family or friends, take on a before-and-after, plan your time for taking on projects “for fun”
“Spray and Pray“, the wrong approach to job-hunting

Tools

Resume and Portfolio

Techniques

Chronicle everything. Get co-workers testimony, get figured & statistics
Use your promotion opportunities as a chance to update your portfolio. Keep things fresh.
Ask for feedback following an interview, don’t accept “you need more experience”

Habits

Save your praise, especially in a corporate environment
Bring two copies of your resume to any interview, on the paper that you chose. Control that experience.
Always be networking
