Kurtis Wallace – Mini Job Search


My strengths as an employee are that I am a very trustworthy person and a very dedicated worker. Also I have good people skills and a lot of patience to deal with any issue that may come my way. Drawing is a skill that I have which I continue to develop every chance that I get. Animals and animated characters are two things that I enjoy drawing. As far as computer program skills go I have moderate experience with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator. I am always willing to try a new program if given the chance. Currently I am seeking a career in the advertising / graphic design department. This type of career offers a lot of versatility which is what interests me the most. One day I hope to achieve my personal goal of having a design that I have created become known worldwide. Making designs for posters ,books and billboards is a strong interest of mine. Working in groups or individually are both fine with me.

My job search introduced  me to many different employers with similar things that they looked for in an employee. Most of the employers that I looked at wanted an employee who had a Bachelor’s degree and at least 1 or 2 years of experience. They also wanted someone who was experienced with the whole Adobe Creative Suite but specifically Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign. Two job titles I saw often were intern and junior graphic designer. My time at City Tech has helped me skill-wise. It was here that I was introduced to the Adobe programs which I use today. The school assignments that were given to me allowed me the chance to try out the different tools that were in some of the Adobe programs.

    The letter shows your interest and enthusiasm in communication design and the skills you have. You are a great applicant if you can have more work experience. I would suggest putting one short sentence to end your letter and make it more presentable to prospective employers.
