This letter is my personal recommendation for Tommie Faul as a Layout Assistant and Web Administrator. I was Tommie's immediate supervisor for 17 months. I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile.
Tommie accepted every assignment as a challenge and gave his best. He was not one to complain, but was quiet-spoken, polite, friendly, cheerful, and treated everyone with respect. As many of our projects are team efforts rather than individual assignments, he exhibited the ability to be a good team player. He kept a tidy workspace and was well organized.
It was a pleasure to have him on our team and also to see his growth in the Graphic Design field. Tommie is qualified to work in Photoshop and lndesign on Mac and has extensive knowledge of Microsoft Word...
...As the Web administrator, Tommie excelled in learning new technical information. He did an excellent job in putting together a detailed training manual for our Web site and was instrumental in the transfer of information from our old Web site to our new one, which was no small undertaking.
Because Bridges for Peace is an international organization with offices in seven other nations, Tommie became familiar with the nuances required for international publications.
I recommend Tommie for employment, as he would be a great asset to any organization.
