  1. 1. As a graduate of the Academy of Art University, I have acquired a unique set of skills, which I personally categorize as creative business organization. Studying merchandising at a school of art has given me the ability to see the clear connection between business and design; I am able to stay efficient and organized while being creative and thinking outside the box. In addition to my knowledge of business and design I can offer you many various skills. Along with my eye for aesthetics, I am extremely organized, versatile, and a very fast learner. I work great with others and am open to constructive criticisms and suggestions. I am also perfectly capable of taking on challenging tasks independently and managing multiple projects when needed. I will also be offering you my dedication. I make it a point to be reliable and punctual, and I constantly keep my workspace in order. Being a part of your company is ideal for me, I have great communication and visual design skills as well as knowledge of Windows, Mac OSX, Microsoft Office, and Adobe Creative Suite. I am eager to join your team and help any business run more smoothly than it already is. Thank you, Farah Akbik AkbiD E S I G N E R f a a k b i k @ g m a i l . c o m 4 1 5 . 7 5 6 . 0 3 2 8 k
