Meet Sue Nail


One of my favorite people of all times is Sue Nail, who is a PR specialist. Remember Chiat/Day's first email program, Quickmail? I still say it's the best email program ever invented and Sue was their PR person. She was also PR person for Gateway Computer.

I've remained friends with her ever since. She's an amazing PR person and so when she told me on the phone the other day that she was looking for a job, I asked if I could post her resume on Jay/Day. So here it is.

Sue lives in Sioux City, Iowa, and been working virtual for decades. She's total adorable and I'd be thrilled if you'd give her some consideration or two.

3Peas Consulting



Not out of the box. No catch phrases. No mind numbing power-point delivered by some humorless stiff you can't imagine has ever had a tight deadline or a crazy client, or a lunatic manager. It's me! Eve!

3Peas consulting is fresh! It is training and coaching that your team wants presented by a person who gets it. 3Peas consulting isn't old and sage; it's salty.

3Peas really teaches your staff how to manage, review, terminate, promote, change a stale process. It is how to give killer presentations, run a meeting, and what you need to know about employment law if you are managing people. All presented in a way that is relevant, real, customized to your firm and worth your and your staffs time.

I am going to be up in NYC May 13th -16th, and would love it if any of you have the time to talk with me about how I could bring some spark and useful information to your teams. Plus I miss the minds (and even some faces) of so many of my old C/D friends, it would be great for a chance to see you and pretend it’s business!

Give me a call or email me if you’d like to take me up on it!

The following comes from the July 2004 issue of Harpers magazine. The spelling mistakes have been preserved. I can only imagine how much Jay would have loved this article:

From cover letters sent by job applicants, clients, and vendors to Killian & Company, an advertising firm based in Chicago, over the last four years.

It is my desire to develop and generate the revolving scheme to filter the consuming public in.

Today is the first day of my life. I am terrified of the all-out approach I sense in my spirit. However, I am not scared enough to let it stop me. I will sacrifice anything but my God (morals) and my family.

Originally from Vietnam, I also offer expertise in the following areas: Asian cuisine: I deliver in-box or out-of-the-box; traditional massage: I satisfy Client above their expectation; karaoke singing: but also a lot of listening, listening, and listening to Client. Would you like to taste any of those?

I want to obtain a deeper understanding of how Advertising firms.

At school he is a student of advertising, on the streets of Chicago he is a student of culture and memes. This is Advertising, finding that elusive why. Charles understand the nuances of culture, the relativity of trends, the impact of memes. He is all of us and one of us, he is the Cultural Chameleon.

Whos better to spew out incite, than a college senior?

Looking for a full creative person for your team? . Deep Studies on movies. Prepared for the totally unexpected advertising and Selling Blasting.

I want to expose my creative ideas for a good agency not just that the agency is good rather to build a image of quality. Thus, I am offering you this small note of request to give me a break by providing projects of
a. Creating concept for TV Commercials
b. Print media
c. Hoarding

Hi: Im from Ukraine, and wery interesting about profi advertisement. I have some interesting and absolutely new ideas (for example about car brands) but in our fuking (sorry) country its unreal to do own business. May be you want to work with us? Its will be really good.

MBA Weblog

Resumes and is S-O-O nineties. If you're trolling for some smart MBA graduates, those who blog their way through school are just the agressive entrepreneurs you've been looking for. On the other hand, maybe they'll spend WAY too much time at work updating their blogs.
