42 years in the graphic arts, last 20 in ad agencies

Dear Human Resources,

My name is Don Yacona. I have over 30 years experience in printing and advertising. I have worked for R.R. Donnelley, Applied Graphics Technology, Bozell, Lowe, Sudler and Hennessey and Ogilvy & Mather, and most recently, Hogarth, as a quality control person in the print production studio.  The studios that I have worked in have been more efficient because my presence there enables the shift manager to concentrate on department workflow and producing work in a timely fashion. I am can also work in traffic and production. At A.G.T., because of departmental workforce reductions on the account that I was assigned to (BMG music packaging), not only was I responsible for the manufacturing of the final product for release to the printers, but I also had to act as my own traffic and production department.
I can be an asset in your graphic production studio and would love to discuss the possibility of employment.
