Justin Young's Summary

I am self-motivated, detail oriented, multi-tasking individual with a desire to learn new skills.
At Code Corporation, I gained a variety of experience including tracking expenses, managing contacts and leads using Sales Force, and preparing Google Analytic reports to analyze the effectiveness of our website and search engines. I worked with Adobe Creative Suites to produce marketing materials. I was also able carry out monthly searches to determine new re-sellers we can expand our business to. I had the opportunity to plan trade shows each month. Coordinating multiple projects and trade shows each month has given me great organizational skills.
In my position in the Employment Division of the LDS Church, I created several posters using Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Adobe Photoshop. These posters were displayed in the LDS Church Employment Center and in LDS church buildings around North America. I also worked independently to create marketing and networking plans, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, for the LDS Church’s employment website. After researching what resources were available, I created a plan involving messaging and material development to aid individuals seeking to further themselves in their employment, education, or self-employment. I was able to create a system that reaches over one million people around the world. In developing this plan, I had to collaborate with all sectors of the Employment Division to gather information and to insure the messaging and materials reflected the core values of each sector while staying in line with the mission of the Welfare Department. To accomplish this task required that I had the versatility to work with and coordinate several different teams of people. I had to be able to communicate cross-functionally; as well as collaborate internal and external resources. In addition, I had to be very organized and detail-oriented to carry this plan into effect from start to finish.
