Beginnings and endings always seem to feel the same, don’t they? They’re always a bit awkward, and you’re not sure what to do at first, but you almost always figure it out as you go along. That’s what I’m hoping is the case here.

The first post on a brand new endeavor such as this is especially nerve-wracking. In fact, it feels like I’m interviewing for my first job all over again! You see, this little blog and shop has been a little nerdy pipe dream of mine for a long time. This site alone has been months in the making! Years of job coaching, tinkering, and researching combined with a huge support team has slowly turned this pipe dream into a reality.

So, without further ado, welcome to Nineto5 Design! We aim to make the stressful, arduous task of finding employment and finding that work/life balance a little less stressful and a lot more fun. Resume templates and cover letters await your perusal, while here at the blog we’ll be discussing all aspects of applying to, interviewing for, and kicking ass at the job of your dreams. Or, maybe it’s the first stepping stone on your way to that big dream job; Either way, I want to help you get there.

Presentation templates for work or academics are also in the works, and we’ve pre-coded several excel workbooks to help you in all aspects of life; because we don’t stop caring as soon you’re off the clock!

There are so many exciting things in store for this little shop. I hope you’ll join me in seeing where this goes.

To kick things off, I’d like to offer you a little digital housewarming gift! In the spirit of thanking everyone that has helped get this odd little idea off the ground, and thanking you early, faithful folks for looking around, please take advantage of these FREE printable thank you cards! Whether you use them after a big job interview (which you should), to thank someone out of the blue, or save them for the holiday season, they are yours to print, cut, and send to as many people as you’d like!
