Nice smooth design. Very clean. Points to you for readability. Here are some things for improvement:

  • MS office, XP, OSX are not really something one should claim proficiency in. Unless, of course, you know how to build network, write macros, and do things like kerning. Get rid of that nonsense. 
  • Focus on your experience with Adobe products and provide a link to your portfolio. Show accomplishments.

Here are writing issues:

  • Inconsistent capitalization.
  • "…brought a lot of experience in…" is poor grammar.
Again, not a bad resume—especially for someone as early career as you are.


hey y’all its my resume

3 tips for job seekers who want to re-locate to another state

Are you looking to relocate to another state to find work? Here’s a few tips to make your relocation easier.

1. Create a short pitch (for interviews, networking and cover letters) that
intelligently and plausibly explains why you want to relocate. Companies
want to know that you’re moving due to intelligent and adult motives—such as relocating to be with a spouse or a partner, or to return home to take care of aged parents—as opposed to people who are on the run from
themselves, people who are constantly relocating because they can’t commit to anything. You’re asking a company in another state to financially invest in you, you need to have a valid reason, from a hiring manager’s POV, to choose you above someone who is already in state. You’re also going to need this info to convince someone to network on your behalf. Present as you wish to be perceived.

2. Identify a list of companies in your new state, and, working backwards
from those companies, create a list of people you know at those companies, whom you can approach. Create this list from LinkedIn connections, Facebook friends, relatives, friends of the family. Also great to join your college and/or grad school alumni network, and ask for their help in finding alumni at those companies, as well as leads on other companies you probably haven’t thought about. Many alumni associations nowadays will give you a free consultation, you just need to join your alumni association and ask for help.

3. Join your college/grad schools’ LinkedIn alumni group(s), and place a
general yet organized posting in those groups asking if any of the members happen to have any leads in whatever industry you’re interested in, and give your email. Make your pitch short and well-reasoned, allow people to help you, by making it clear what type of help you’re looking for.
