Revisit Roundup: Building Your Portfolio

September 1, 2016

  First impressions matter. Whether you’re going on a date or a job interview, there’s always pressure to share the best parts of yourself. Most recently, Richmond UX hosted a talk with Jason Cranford Teague about portfolios. It gave me a chance to revisit several of my previous blog posts because a lot of the […]

Revisit: Were We Raised to be Generalists?

August 9, 2016

  After years of wearing all the hats, it turned out I could specialize in something. But only because I appreciate the greater context of digital marketing. I spent the last few years in marketing agencies and it’s easy to specialize there. You’re a copywriter, you’re a designer, you’re a developer. If you’re on a […]

Revisit: Hi, My Name is Emily, and I’m Pro-Corporate

July 22, 2016

Yep, the corporate life is totally for me. Since I’m in a new role “in-house” after four years at agencies, it seemed like this was one of the best posts to revisit as part of looking back. I wrote the original six years ago before I was in totally free, creative environments. The fact that […]

November 8, 2011

Like every stereotype out there, I feel like I’m am being smashed in with a vast generalization that just because I don’t make millions of dollars, I am part of the disgruntled 99% crowd. I am not part of the 99%. And I really don’t like these people speaking on behalf of me. I guess […]

LinkedIn Report: Top Office Pet Peeves

September 28, 2011

There have been many a time when someone has come rushing into my office, shut the door and said, “OMG, that woman is going to drive me up a wall! She keeps putting all her peanut-buttery dishes in the dishwasher and so we have to run it twice. Just rinse things off!” Maybe it’s not […]

Career Action Plan

August 24, 2011

As I finished my internship this summer, I made sure that I was able to get feedback from my bosses to take with me for the future. Essentially, I wanted as close to a performance review as I could get. Not just the, “You did a good job this summer, keep it up!” message I […]
