We got her down off the ladder (she never stays still for long) to answer our 11 Quick Questions, so you can find out what advice she has for digital creatives, what keeps her inspired, and important stuff like her favorite app.
- App that you can't live without? Tough call, I use Facebook most often, but I also love Food Network In the Kitchen.
- iPhone, Android, or Blackberry? iPhone all the way!!!
- Who rocks your world on Twitter? Comedian and actor @JimGaffigan
- Favorite site? Made in Melissa’s Kitchen.
- Inspirational Digital Hero? Steve Jobs
- Stranded-on-an-island DVD? Hard call to pick just one, but I think it would be Steel Magnolias or Forest Gump
- Most important advice for creative resumes? Don't get too crazy with the creative aspect of a resume. Keep a clean design aesthetic that’s consistent throughout - especially with the use of fonts, font size, and bullets.
- Favorite place to eat in town? Mia Francesca
- Jobs trending in your area? Front end developers and UI/UX positions
- Favorite ad? RPA’s “Matthew’s Day Off” for Honda. (John Hughes, the director of “Ferris Bueller's Day Off,” graduated from my high school. The original was movie was partially filmed in Northbrook, IL, my hometown!)
- Parting piece of advice for interviewing? Be confident but not overly confident. Always keep the job description in mind when answering questions. Be positive with your answers and never talk negatively about previous employers. If possible, send a thank you email or note, but be sure to check it for grammatical and spelling errors.
