An Outside Point of View
Over the years I have received multiple recommendations of my work as a designer, a student, and an employee or contractor. Here are a few for your reference. Please note that the dates refer to when the review itself was provided; actual employment periods are available on my CV.
D. Steen, America’s Preferred Home Warranty Real-Pro Coordinator & Dotloop Administration (2019)
Cara’s work always amazes me. When I won a personalized design in a raffle, she took the time to grasp my vision, and the design she came up with was exactly what I didn’t even know I was looking for! She works hard, she’s detail oriented, and she always makes her deadline. She has also been a great influence as our company’s Relay for Life Committee Team Captain, blowing past last year’s fundraising goal with half a year yet to spare. Trust me, you want this one on your team!
C. Negaran, Dawn Foods Supervisor (2017)
Cara was an efficient worker and quick to learn the procedures of our Marketing Communications department. I really appreciated her eagerness to jump in and get the job done. She is a master with Photoshop, is very highly skilled with the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite, and is quite a talented creative writer.
R. Conlon, Siena Heights University Professor of Art (2015)
...[Cara's] talent, creativity, level of work, and commitment was obvious in all aspects of her work, and she was a consistent example for other students and always a pleasure to work and converse with. ... I especially appreciated Cara's attitude toward and ability to work with other students. Her interaction with her peers on their projects showed a real ability to be a team player, and she does this in a mature and thoughtful way.
Let me add personally that Cara is a person of integrity. ... Doing good work is important to her, not to please others, but because she has a high sense of her own endeavors and responsibility, in whatever forms they present themselves. Because of this, she will be an asset and not simply an employee in any area she chooses to pursue. I have no doubt that Cara will excel in everything that she pursues, as she had done at Siena Heights, and I highly recommend her.
S. Sprague [Redden], Goodwill Industries Supervisor (2015)
I am writing to wholeheartedly endorse Cara Maib [Baker] for the position of Graphic Designer. She would make an outstanding promoter. ... Cara is very creative, a quick learner, energetic, and hardworking. [She] is also very flexible and eager to take on new challenges. For example, during the busy season we decided to take a few items off of her to-do list. Cara completed them along with her main objectives and made an immediate and positive impression on everyone here. I'm convinced Cara will be as great an asset to your company as she has been to ours.
J. Carpenter, On The Point Promotions Owner (2013)
Cara has been a great addition to On The Point Promotions ... She has proven to be creative, hard working and extremely reliable. Her personality has blended well with colleagues and clients alike. [She] has also been eager to learn and further her knowledge and talent. The demand that On The Point Promotions places upon a graphic artist is quite intense as we often need art from a fraction of an inch to over 25 feet in size and often in tight time deadline situations. If you are seeking a talented, dependable and honest graphic artist, I strongly recommend Cara Maib [Baker].
T. Maher, Discount Party Supplies Coworker (2012)
Cara was a talented and committed team member, whose contributions were integral to our company's success. She occupied a multi-faceted position, that required flexibility and expertise in several categories. Her ability to work under tight deadlines, with focus and dedication, made her an invaluable part of Discount Party Supplies.
D. Ryan, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) Supervisor (2011)
Cara was an extremely detail-oriented editor and layout artist. Her work directly contributed to the ship winning numerous Navy-wide awards. Cara also won several news writing awards herself. I would hire Cara again without hesitation. She is a dedicated worker with extremely high professional standards and personal morals.
