    Personality: visionary, creative, analytical, collaborative, intuitive, compassionate, variety-seeking, resourceful, curious Looking for: positions as a "smart person on call" ... relevant titles may include: Project (or Program) Manager, Creative Director, Business Analyst, Strategy Analyst, etc. ~ Hi there & thanks so much for reviewing my profile! If you are looking for someone to provide fantastic ideas on your projects, take care of all those tiny details needing to handled, and generally be your "smart person on call" -- then you've really hit the jackpot here! Before I jump into the details about me, as well as explain what a swiss army knife has to do with employability, I'd like to get a few things settled, so that I don't waste your time ... I have a few strong opinions about where I work. The company that I work for, ideally: * is focused on helping people (clients, general public, other businesses, etc.). * employs fantastic and talented people who are super-passionate about what they do. * highly values great design and has some relation to it in everyday work (whether it's actual design of websites/apps/logos/etc.; creating awesomely designed reports, materials, or products/services for clients; or just having really nice branding and letterhead and website.) * doesn't rely solely on Microsoft technology -- I can use Windows and I have it available, but I don't like it. (And their other services & products aren't top-of-class, either.) * doesn't do spammy ad-posting or mass cold-calling, period. I don't care if I'm not doing it, I prefer to work at a company with great, honest marketing practices and warm/hot lead usage. OK, if you made it through all of that with no complaints, then we're looking good! So, what do I mean by "swiss army knife"? This basically means being a versatile and adaptable employee -- one who can do a lot of things fairly well and learn new things and skills easily (by repurposing general capabilities and knowledge to acclimate to new tasks). For example, I can: * teach myself new software very easily (because I have over 20 years of computer experience and have seen and used thousands of programs, software, and services) * adjust and create new HTML and CSS code, as well as source and tailor solutions in other technologies, like Javascript or jQuery (because anything I don't already know, I can quickly teach myself, at least enough to complete the task at hand) * advise and tailor the plans/deliverables/processes for marketing, branding, image/identity, and user/consumer engagement (because I've seen enough of all of these to know what's awesome, decent, and ill-advised) * research, compare, and propose new services to use, be it software, web services, or tangible products (because I'm highly selective, can imagine how services might be used, and like pitting things against each other -- "Which options can give me all the best features, the best design, and not have any of the deal-breaker issues or limitations?") In short: I would be a great employee to have on hand in a wide variety of situations. I'm at my best when I am included in as many steps of the business process as possible, where I can add ideas, put a stop to anything ill-advised, and generally help tailor everything into the best possible outcome. Please note that the skills and qualities listed above is by no means even close to comprehensive. Listing all of my skills, the tools I have experience with, etc. would go on nearly forever...so if you have a specific (or general) question in mind, please feel perfectly free to ask. I can't wait to hear about your company and job opening! Thanks again! Carolyn P.S., For the more personable among you who like to get to know others, here are some random things I like (some work-related, some just for fun!): * usability, good design, creative ideas * people-focused theories (such as graphic design theories with a psychological bent) * leveraging technology and organizational tactics to make: documents and info easier to find, ideas flow better, and communication more immediate * the latest, greatest Apple toys * new and innovative technology (software, computers, gadgets, tools) * productivity, positive psychology, and self-improvement; the more profound the ideas, the better! * ergonomics, holistic medicine and nutrition, veganism, yoga/meditation/mindfulness, tea  less
