LET'S START WITH THE SKILLS
Dedicated team player
Thank you for the opportunity to apply for the posted position at your company. After reviewing your job description, it’s clear that you’re looking for a candidate that is extremely familiar with the responsibilities associated with the role. One that can perform the duties conﬁdently, is teachable, and can contribute to not only the company but to the larger picture; giving consumers an exciting bottom line. Given these requirements, I am certain that I have the necessary skills to successfully do the job proﬁciently and perform above expectations.
I was born in El Salvador, and lived in Guatemala, Panama, and, Costa Rica.
I can READ, WRITE, and SPEAK Spanish fluently.
I am a Professional Designer driven by creative ideas.
I am a results-oriented professional with an MBA, ﬂuent in Spanish, who has been consistently praised as detail-oriented by my peers, clients, and managers. Over the life-cycle of my pertinent experience, I have developed a skill set directly relevant to the creation, continuation, and correction of content-driven websites. In addition to being able to design and implement WordPress based websites, I excel in content creation, I am an accomplished Blog writer, logo designer, print guru, graphic designer, and am able to analyze and assess SEO analytics. Those are all tangibles, if given the opportunity you will see them the ﬁrst day I am on the job. Lets talk about intangibles; humility, grit, self awareness, resourcefulness, loyalty, my purpose in life is how I react in stressful situations or problem solve them. I could break all these intangibles down, but, it would be much easier to show you.
I have been in the web design world since 2013, I’ve had many diﬀerent roles, responsibilities, directives and tasks. I believe that I have handled them in the best interests of the organization ,agency, and the clients I was servicing. I have learned that you can be the greatest designer ever, but, not having the ability to communicate or create dialogue makes all that you have done, null and void. What sets me apart from the other individuals applying for this role is my ability to communicate, dialogue, and problem solve. I am able to relate, listen, show empathy, and create strong links with clients. The goal is to create enough trust that they will allow you to show oﬀ your resources, as a team; that's the ultimate.
Are soft skills playing a more important role this time around?
With so many individuals having the same abilities in the hard skills department (i.e coding,, HTML, JAVA, CSS, WordPress, Adobe Creative Cloud, etc…) companies are now needing to be more creative on how they select future employees. One way that companies have changed their selection method is by having potential employees do assessments before said company wants to extend a interview to a potential employee. Soft skills are the intangibles that define us, make us who we are, how we act, and how react. For my owe personal opinion I think that it’s great that the creative world is beginning to change in a different direction.
