|Lorna as Designer|
I graduated in 2000 with a 2.1 graphic design and illustration but for family reasons was unable to apply for a designer job. I am angst ridden on writing a cover letter for a job as a junior designer at the OUP in Oxford. So instead of writing I thought of the more unconvential idea of doing it as an illustration saying something about me. My cv tells them about my skill sets but I feel the cover letter is suppose to say why 'they' should employ you.
My reality is that I am a fat middle age women who needs a job and whose greatest talent is being able to think outside the box but suffers from lack of confidence.
So do you think sending in an illustration is a good idea.
