Marketing Your Personality in the Design Industry

  1. 1. Marketing your Personality in the Design Industry Things employers look for that can’t be found on your resume@lasertron princesslasertron.com
  2. 2. a clever resume references college degree (Its not enough)@lasertron princesslasertron.com
  3. 3. 1 Good judgment People who waste time or make bad decisions are an even bigger drain on resources in an industry that is driven by creative ideas Some college students are entitled idiots who dont know how to work hard Practice what is doing best for your without the influence of your peers 158 hours/week = 56 hours sleeping, 60 hours working 52 extra hours@lasertron princesslasertron.com
  4. 4. 2 Ability to persuade Practice pitching yourself and your ideas Pitch a different assignment youd rather do to a professor Convince an admired professional that you can help them improve their business (offer to manage the Twitter feed and company blog!) Business in “real life” is an everyday pitch@lasertron princesslasertron.com
  5. 5. 3 Public speaking skills Its not just words—its confidence, poise, and pitching! Being able to think on your feet and speak articulately are invaluable to businesses (But you have to practice!) Ask a professor if you can do a public presentation of a research project “Tell me something you think, and three reasons why.”@lasertron princesslasertron.com
  6. 6. 4 Self-responsibility and accountability Never enough time/Never your faultIt’s a big red flag to employers and basically everyone if nothing seems to go your way. (Are you assertive? Can you advocate for yourself? Are you lazy?) People use the excuse of time to avoid facing reality—they just dont want it that bad@lasertron princesslasertron.com
