Position yourself as the obvious candidate for the type of work you want to be doing!
Here’s what the final result looks like:
First, fill in these blanks
Make sure you write inside each “Empty quote” section, or the magic breaks.
Introduce yourself by name, and briefly describe the type of work you do (or want to get hired for).
Hey there! I’m Jeremy, and I’m a creative director. I lead creative teams to produce award-winning work that drives business results.
Why do you enjoy this type of work?
I grew up making all kinds of art with friends—and I’ve always been the “designer” friend who noticed cool logos and billboards more than others. Nothing gets me more excited than collaborating on high-quality creative projects.
What is your experience?
Whether formal education, professional experience, or none prove you are good at this kind of work—or at the very least, that you are learning quickly.
I got my bachelor’s in design management, but I really cut my teeth in the creative world by interning at an award-winning ad agency during college, and then starting two agencies of my own. I’ve worked with nearly one hundred clients across nearly every industry, and you can see most of my work on my website, jeremy.chevallier.net.
Finally, share how people can work with you.
I’m looking for my next opportunity to lead a creative team in-house or on a consulting basis. Shoot me an email at email@example.com if you’d like to explore working together.
