Hi everybody. I am Pedro Miguel Pagán-Rivera. I had been almost four years here in the Tampa zone, living with my sister and niece. My situation is this. I am a prepared and experienced web designer, content producer, graphic artist, copywriter and social community manager that had send several resumes and application looking for a job and never receive an interview.
I think that my major problem is my age, 55 years old. In my industry, there are not many opportunities for people like me. Once I went to a Walmart interview and not even there I was selected.
I understand that my English is on a business orally but the real thing is that I can understand it perfectly and can express it very well, with an accent of course but I don't think am the only one with it.
I need a job, maybe not related with my professional area but I do really need a job. Hope someone can help me. Thank you community.
What I loved most about working at Lockheed Martin was being surrounded by such good people; intelligent, kind, helpful, and supportive. I also loved that I could come in every day and learn something new. All challenges I had encountered were resolved by diligence, teamwork, and ownership. I never faced the same challenge twice. #culturefit #mythoughts #utilities #inspiration #manufacturing #design #engineering #teamwork
Can someone help me with my portfolio? What's good,? what's bad? (I know the site itself is horrible...'m more focused on the work itself) Thanks. What do I need to ad to it? Do I need to go back to school for a B.A.?( I can't afford it, but I just spent 12,000. on an A.A.and after hundreds of applications and months of waiting....nothing...
Thanks, I really appreciate it!!!
On disability currantly looking to get off of it. College educated. 4 years of psychology, 1 year graphic design and 2 years photpgraphy. I can edit photos and read a lot. Im a funny and usually happy person and love to smile. Im also trained in customer service and have 20 years experience ! I love to work with computers and in fast paced enviroments. Hire me before the legalization of marijuana and make more money. I am a proven psychic. Proven by doctors.
I read lot of posts expressing frustration at getting job or complaining about office colleagues or office environment. My advise is to stop worrying about matters that are beyond our control. These worries are like sitting in a rocking chair. We do keep moving the chair, but it does not take us anywhere. Everyone has different skills like decoration. cooking, gardening, teaching. Why not use these skills. The problem is selling. For this digital marketing is an extremely helpful tool. I am 63 years and want to learn the technique. Can somebody suggest sites those provide basic knowledge of this tool.
You have to produce one just to get into college if that's where you see yourself. If not get digital with all of the software tutorials on YouTube starting with Adobe Photoshop and then branching out from there. Best advice i ever got when deciding if I was to go digital came from a friend's wife who was already working within a Mac. She said " Even if you stay with just pencil and paper it all gets digitized anyway so might as well get wit the program and learn computerized illustration". The rest is up to you.
