May 18th I went to the Minneapolis Convention Center for the Small Business Expo. I met several interesting people during the networking meetings. Over the last week I have connected with a few people over social media. I think I was a great way to meet new people and share my business with them. In the future I plan to go to the Twin Cities 2nd Fridays events. They meet almost every month on the second Friday for networking.
May 21st I put in my application to become a craft vendor at the Minneapolis Craft Market. The very next day I got an email saying “We love your work and are pleased to approve you as a trader! Attached is an approved trader badge for you to share with your social media networks. ” My plan is to be a trader at the Sociable Summer Marker Saturday August 12, 2017.
May 24th was my last day employed at Home Depot in Coon Rapids, MN. I quit my job because I want to pursue a career in graphic design. I want to be able to have a graphic design job that will correspond with my A.A.S.Graphic Design and Bachelor of Elective Studies degrees. Starting in June I would like to add to my portfolio using Adobe free trail software. My plan is to use the software to create a few new projects for my portfolio this summer.
Today, May 25th is the first day of being free from my retail job working as a Cashier for Home Depot for over a year and half. I’ve been updating my WordPress website, Linkedin, Facebook and job resumes and looking for new jobs in graphic design. I look forward to having a busy and creative summer and finding a new job very soon.
