Statement of Ambition

This is post­ed on my brand new ré­sumé page.

I am a man of ac­tion, and a man who thrives on com­mu­ni­ca­tion. I do my best when I am con­stant­ly chal­lenged and re­quired to use crit­i­cal think­ing and prob­lem solv­ing to reach a de­sired out­come. Yet this is all too gen­er­al. If you are in­volved in ad­ver­tis­ing, pub­lic re­la­tions, con­sult­ing, pub­lish­ing or new me­dia, read on, and I’ll tell you why you should hire me. If you’re not in­volved in any of those, read on any­way, I’m prob­a­bly will­ing to work with you as well.

• Advertising and pub­lic re­la­tions

The art of rhetoric and the tac­ti­cal place­ment of words and im­ages are vi­tal com­po­nents to suc­cess­ful­ly sell­ing your pro­duct; from mouth­wash to pub­lic pol­i­cy. I have the stub­born­ness, tact, and per­son­al­i­ty to main­tain a brand im­age in the face of op­po­si­tion, and the chops to prove it. I al­so know when to keep my mouth shut.

• Consulting

Analysis, syn­the­sis, quan­tifi­ca­tion and qual­i­fi­ca­tion are para­mount abil­i­ties for an ef­fec­tive con­sul­tant. I can ab­sorb vast quan­ti­ties of in­for­ma­tion, burn the chaff and provide a dis­tinct and fo­cused brief­ing of any prob­lem. My co­op­er­a­tive na­ture makes team brain­storm­ing ses­sions the per­fect set­ting for best use of my brain­pow­er.

• Publishing

With over two years of ex­pe­ri­ence with a ma­jor pub­lish­er, near­ly per­fect gram­mat­i­cal skill, and a vo­ra­cious ap­petite for the writ­ten word, I am well-suit­ed to the dead­line based work­flows of the pub­lish­ing in­dus­try.

• New Media

As hob­bies go, a fas­ci­na­tion and fa­cil­i­ty for the log­ic and syn­tax of new me­dia prod­ucts is rather high on the geek scale. Yet few things flip my switch­es more than a thorny stan­dards com­pli­ance is­sue or del­i­cate piece of video edit­ing. If you’re look­ing for a de­tail-ori­ent­ed, on-the-ball self-starter, look no fur­ther.

So if you’d like to talk with me about op­por­tu­ni­ties at your work­place, or have any ques­tions, give me a call at 216.287.1370 or send me an email at aharvey@​organicmechanic.​org. I hope to hear from you.

  1. “a man of action”…i im­me­di­ate­ly pic­tured the “Brock Landers and Chest Rockwell” seg­ment in Boogie Nights, in which Marky Mark bran­dish­es nunchuks while sport­ing a den­im patch­work suit.
