Res 2: V: "Making bullet points under qualification and skills more pronounce. I did not see them at first and when I started reading, the “absence” of them made everything runs into each other."

 

Software Specialties

Frequently Used & Taught Software Solutions

Although I quickly and effectively learn and teach innumerable programs on a regular basis, the following list represents the major programs I tend to use and teach the most.

 

>> Ay: Maybe you are trying to communicate that you are a fast learner but the word “quickly” is jeopardizing the quality of your proficiency in my mind...like you just “quickly” learned a few things about them. Would this work?:

Although I have learned and taught numerous programs….

--

>> V: …I think there are too much things bolded for my eyes. The subtitle is bolded and every point under the subtitle; this makes everything blends into each other. I would recommend just bolding only the sub titles.

 

My 200 Programs

I keep well over 200 programs installed on my computer (and that is not counting standalone applications, and web apps).  Because of this, it is not really practical for me to list out every single program that I use and teach, but hopefully I can give a useful summary of the most important programs I use on a regular basis.

>> is there a role that I could present of myself as an Ongoing Efficiency Developer – AutoHotkey

>> Computer Efficiency Specialist

>> Clean up computers to work faster…..

>> keep up-to-date w technology – did not just learn it once

--

>> Virtual machines/Virtualization (VirtualBox/VMware/Virtual PC/etc.)

>> countless programs... media authoring, technical, collaborative, (any other categories of software???)

>> productivity programs: ahk (macos for automating your entire digital work flow), SyncBack (advanced file and website synchronization)

 

>> you have to gain an advanced level

 

I Never Stop Learning Software

Very frequently I am busy researching, testing, and implementing new software solutions to solve computer challenges and increase efficiency. Even if I do not know a specific program today, bear in mind, I might very quickly know it tomorrow, and I can even be ready to teach it in a few days. I do this kind of thing all the time. If I were to say that I am a “quick learner” that might be an understatement when it comes to accomplishing software solutions to make computers work as efficient as possible.

 

Software Highlights & Computer Skills

An Overview of the Countless Programs and Skills I Teach

 

>> Ay: the usage of words like “innumerable and countless.”   It may be OK and may not need altering; however, these words make me uncomfortable for some reason maybe because I’m not use to them in a formal setting like resumes. Maybe words like “numerous, a plethora, etc” would still communicate “a lot” but in a less infinite way.

Conclusion: From Formal Artistic Education to Self-Taught Computer Education

Although my formal Graphic Design education was 1999-2003, my self-taught education has been since 1996, and has been much more defining for my career (as seen in my Work Experience and in the Software Lists below).

 

 

---------------

Main Things I Still Might Need

To Dos….

>> what did you actually Do/accomplish?? Think: managing about 20 laptops syncing data/VPN/networking/ traveling / fixing video problems/ efficient sync solutions – name all the actual problems I have solved

- done lots of public speaking to all kinds of groups & massive training of lots of people

- Lead a team to Present & Win A Graphic Design Campaign

 

Strategy Implementation, Systems Analysis & Design

Research and Development

On-Site Services

Upgrades

Photo Retouching & Enhancements

Adobe & Microsoft Training

Training, installation and configuration of nearly any software

 

What are the three main skills I bring to this job?

(not just what I’m good at)

 

What I have accomplished more recently w girls?

>> make a big deal on commensurate experience

>> what have you accomplished/ what problems have you fixed?

 

--

How does this transfer into value for a potential employer? – into the brain, and see it from their perspective

How you an asset for the company?

USP – what is your unique selling position?

STUDIO 6

Spring 2003 Gainesville FL

Campaign: Worked with and led team to design complete campaign for vacuum attachment. Personally helped name the product, and present campaign.

 

I lead a team where we were assigned to create and market an entire graphic design campaign, and even in the face of crisis when one of the assigned team members had the police called on him, and even though i was bearing the incredible stress of dealing with police reports right before I was to present before a large group of people, I still managed to turn arround and lead my team in giving a presentation that was so well received, that we not only won the campaign, but we were asked to present again before the league of innovation! (please feel free to ask me more about these adventures during an interview).
