The invention of the Job Seekers Kit

A little over a week ago, I got an email from a customer who wanted to purchase two sets of thank you cards and then asked if I could create some matching calling cards. I thought “Sure! I love custom orders”. I continued reading the email and came to learn that this customer was being laid off next month and wanted the stationery and calling cards for correspondence with potential employers.

I know what it’s like to loose your job. It happened to me in June of 2009. I was devastated. But looking back now, I think it was a blessing in disguise. I truly believe that things happen for a reason. Anyway, I could totally relate to this customer.

We worked together to come up with a calling card design that we both loved and I was looking forward to adding it to my Etsy shop when *ding* light bulb turned on. Why not make a “job seekers kit”? Something that will help people set them apart from the competition. As it stood, I had everything that I needed to do this already for sale in my shop, it was just a matter of making it more cohesive and packaging it together.

I think it’s a really great idea and I’m really excited about it. I feel really good about making something that could potentially help people find a job in this economy. I looked far and wide on Etsy and couldn’t find anything like it! I would love to hear your thoughts on the “job seekers kits” there are eight kit designs available so far.
