Who You Are:
You’re looking for a career where you can be both creative and organized. You love working closely with a team and seeing a project work through its obstacles to reach success. You’re interested in challenging the norm and striving to create work that’s valuable and useful to the consumer as well as innovative and compelling in its own right. You’re a leader and a motivator. You’re detail-oriented and a perfectionist. You can see the big picture, but you understand that it’s the efficient completion of individual tasks that will get you there. Oh, and you’re pretty addicted to the Disney Theme Parks.
