Can you speak to your resume and elaborate when I ask for details. Can I see myself putting you in front of my clients, partners etc. General vibe and read of candidate.

Good luck in job search! Go Bearcats!

For me as a creative, at least 50-75% is portfilio, they need to display the skills we need done. Last but important 25% is fit. Meaning whats your personality like, can you get along with the team and perform and want to stick around more than 1 year. If I even get a gut feeling somethings off I have seen from experience its always a bad outcome not to listen to it. You may not have control over this second part as you need to let nature take its course.

Skillset, aptitude, attitude, and potential.
