Personal Orientation Profile 7.0 Personal Strengths/Career Needs ________________________________________ In Terms of Enterprising vs Support Role Possibilities You would be described as extremely competitive, enterprising, assertive, aggressive, tough minded, determined and goal oriented. You may display new and creative ways to reach your personal and work objectives and you will be self-evaluative and sometimes critical of your own performance. Given an aim, objective or requirement, you would be able to develop your own plan, manage your time and focus your effort on a daily basis to reach your goals. Being a self-manager should come very naturally to you and these skills should be refined through formal training and/or on-the-job experience. In Terms of Your Style & Strength of Various Motivations You would be described as being motivated primarily by a genuine concern for the well-being and needs of others. People would see you as quite calm, steady, unhurried, predictable, stable and cooperative. Given an opportunity to focus your efforts on the achievement of some meaningful and perhaps demanding, long term 'people-oriented' goals, you could become a very loyal, dependable and dedicated member of the team delivering the product or service. Generally your motivational pattern will produce the greatest personal satisfaction and your best performance in positions requiring ongoing commitment to goals which you feel have real merit in alleviating the distress or adding to the quality of life of the people who receive the results of your efforts. In Terms of Your Independence vs Your Need to Be in the 'Team' You would be described as quite cooperative, obliging, efficient, conscientious, painstaking and team oriented. Generally, you would be easy on others and quite accepting of supervision. You would be a good company person working well within a variety of group settings. Security and stability would be valued working conditions desired in the job. In Terms of Your Orientation Towards the 'People' Side of Business You would be described as extremely sociable, entertaining, cheerful, genial and outgoing. In addition to being a fluent talker, you would be comfortable with new people, value social interaction and make new friends easily. Generally, you would be a good company representative and have the ability to communicate with a wide variety of people in a number of different functions. Being extremely sociable could make you somewhat sensitive to rejection. In Terms of Your Orientation Towards Technical & Practical Concerns You would be described as quite logical, reflective, analytical, factual and practical. A job requiring the solving of intellectual or conceptual problems would stimulate a person such as you. You would have a flair for technically oriented and detailed work. Taking on challenges to learn and use new information in a field that interests you would be rewarding in itself. © 1993-2009 Selection Testing Consultants International Ltd.

SUSAN ZOPPI 113 Victoria Drive Eatontown, NJ 07724 732-556-8244 zoppisusan@gmail.com SUMMARY Designed for Sports Illustrated, People Magazine, J. Crew Catalog, Monmouth University, Fortune Magazine, Brides Magazine, Hobby Publications, Belmar Graphics, The Manta Group, Market Samashar, Belmar Chamber of Commerce SUMMARY • Proven ability to establish priorities, handle multiple projects simultaneously, and perform exceeding well under pressure of deadlines, a reputation for developing high impact designs, materials, and creative strategies • Coordinated extensively with Editors to develop and implement design strategies: analyzed individual stories to determine appropriate layout, design and artwork: worked closely with advertisers to design ad materials for all the ads designed for each magazine. • Researched closely with Photographers to select art for layout and create cover art and directed photo shoots with photographers and stylists. Planned, coordinated all publication activities to maintain compliance with print quality controls and make sure all were top tier magazines, including color print specifications. • Addressed any issues with the production department to ensure everything was on schedule: maintain a polished and calm demeanor, even in situations with high uncertainly and tight deadlines. Designed several startup magazines including The Rubber Stamper, a nationally distributed consumer magazine EXPERIENCE Supervised and directed daily activities of up to 10 employees to ensure that departmental objectives were met. Directly oversaw the management and coordination of art and production for several regional and national magazines. Scheduled weekly meetings to ensure my team of designers were moving in the right direction with their layouts and if not assist them to make sure their ideas were creatively strong and progressing on time so all deadlines could be achieved. Mentoring of young designers is an ongoing and critically important activity for a creatively successful Art Department. Met on a regular basis with the Publisher to confirm his involvement with the direction the Art Department was going in for the issue, especially the cover. We start on the cover at the very beginning of each cycle to guarantee time for all changes and to insure the option of obtaining the best possible artwork available. Work with young designers to help them improve their idea skills so they can advance in the art department and be more productive and involved. Talk to advertisers and ad sales people, who get the ad materials, to confirm all ad layouts are approved by advertisers and if changes are necessary, expedite a revision as soon as possible. Creative design leader that can fit into any group situation and very successfully collaborate with all staff members - a real team player!

I have a blog I have developed for Moms' recently, http://gothicmoms.blogspot.com/ that would tell you a lot more. I'm Tiff, some know me as Vampoholic since I've been obsessed with vampires since I was little. Awww.....how I loved the Dark Shadow's from the 80's. I am an aspiring writer, when I find the time, no I have not been published, yet. I love reading all things vampire, as well as other supernatural tales, as long as there are a couple vamps, that do not sparkle or have any fear of bloodshed, thrown in the mix. My eight year old is proving to be just like me, though we all know every vamp induced film is not appropriate for kids, that is what made me want to build this site. I plan on doing some research and finding films and books that we can watch/read, and surprisingly actually enjoy, with our lil spawns. And while doing so, posting reviews on books that will allow us Moms to embrace our inner Gothic self, you know, the one a lot of us hide away now that we have children.
