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

I have a degree in Graphic Design/Visual Communications but I haven't had full time work in the industry since 2009. I am trying to learn digital design/email marketing on the fly so I can get a job doing that work. I'm trying to update my portfolio and update my website as well. I keep getting passed up on every graphic design position because I lack the experience.

How do I get an employer to consider me for a position (or at least discuss it with me) when I have the skills but just lack the experience? I'm getting very frustrated with this and really want a job in this industry instead of just taking a job I won't love just to have a job.

Outstanding Question @John Atamanec ! Thank you so much for sharing this important concern with this community as others facing similar challenges will benefit from the feedback, advice and suggestions.

You actually DO have industry work experience, it's just not current. You experience concern sounds more like a 'employment gap' concern rather than a 'no experience' one. This is actually good news because you have more strategies at your disposal to help you address an employment gap!

What are you currently doing to build your digital design/email marketing skills? Are you taking any online courses or networking with industry resources for virtual training opportunities? Career training platforms like Coursera and EdX offer free and/or affordable online training options for in a variety of digital design and email marketing areas. These courses allow you to train and develop skills at your won pace so there's scheduled time commitment requirement as you continue to explore immediate hiring opportunities.

You can address your unemployment gap with a different resume type (functional resumes work well) and resume optimization techniques to highlight your skill strengths and personal traits. @Ashley Wilson offers some excellent employment gap solutions in her post, Gaps in your resume? Here is what to do!. Check out her suggestions when you have an opportunity and connect with us if you have any questions.

Also, a lot of top employers today are placing more focus on special skills, unique talents and a potential candidates ability to fit into the 'company culture'. Company culture is a BIG component taken into the final decision. Place more emphasis on your personal traits (soft skills are great), capacity to embrace new challenges and ability to fit into the team. A cover letter is a good tool you can use to minimize your lack of recent work experience and highlight more focus on your strengths.

Are employers responding to your online applications? Are you finding your biggest challenges during interviews? How do you know more employers are not considering you due to your lack of recent work experience?

Can you share your top 3 work preferences? Stay encouraged @John Atamanec , sharing your concern with this community already shows you are trending in the right direction. The right employment opportunity will present itself if you continue to take action and pursue your career goals with optimism, Persistence and Hope. You Got This!

I was taking some web design and digital marketing classes on stackedskills.com that I bought at an incredible discount. However, I'm having a difficult time in the web design classes so I won't be able to figure out how to re-code my site on my own without using a WordPress template or someone else's template (I consider that cheating). The digital marketing classes are more about Google Ads & analytics instead of digital design so I may have to look into one of the sites you suggested.

I had my resume and cover letter reworked through a program done by Emily Hawkins. She really emphasized my soft skills and re-structured it in a way I never would have. I highly recommend her.

Even after taking some classes and re-doing my resume, I'm still not even being contacted by employers after I apply. I apply for the job and then nothing. I know it's because my portfolio doesn't have any of the new stuff I've mocked up. But I've been trying to figure out how to recode my site so that it's responsive and I can't figure it out. I even cheated and tried using a responsive template but I made the mistake of editing parts that I didn't need and I'm stuck again. It's not like you can meet face to face with someone during a pandemic and I don't know that I would be able to get help through a zoom session.

So yeah I'm in a real depression state of mind and I'm starting to think that maybe I should just settle for an Accounts Payable position (I have an interview for an AP job next week) just to have a job and forget about a design job. I really want to use my creativity in a design job but when nobody will even talk with you and possibly give you a chance, what are you supposed to do?
