Your task for next week: complete draft 2 of your profile statement plus have additional résumé items written, draft 1 or in some cases, draft 2.

EXPERTISE Creative design, written and verbal communications, copy writing, and editing.
STRENGTHS Attention to detail, organizational development, project management, working in team
environment and developing positive and productive cross-functional relationships.
