  1. Sexy should not be in your resume

    Sexy should not be in your resume

    We are currently hiring to fill various positions in the Pad & Quill workshops.  After reviewing a few hundred e-applications I have the following advice to offer young applicants:

    Dear Job Applicants,

    Please refrain from sending me cover emails that begin with "yo, I'd like this job", or "Hey, call me about this position" etc. Please create an email for yourself that includes your first and last name and not your social media "handle" or email such as "mr.sexypants.mpls@seriously?.com" and please, for the love of god, consult with a resume writer so that you don't include lines such as, "I was a line cook and stuff like that" under employment history.

    Regards,

    Mrs. PQ

    If your professional correspondence contains the word “sexy” in any capacity, you are probably not a candidate to purchase our new Valet Luxury Sleeve for MacBook.

    If you believe Zumbaz and your favorite 80’s concert t-shirt is perfectly acceptable attire for “casual Friday”, there’s a chance you will not fully appreciate the supple, full grain leather of the Oxford Luxury Case for iPad Air.

    If you still own and readily admit that you possess a “snakeskin” jacket, the hand-hammered copper rivets on our new Attache leather bag might be lost on you.

    If Boonehill wine is still your go to on a date night, there’s a chance you won’t be impressed by our parachute grade thread that stitches our Valet Luxury Sleeve together.

    Having blown past your 25th high school reunion, you might be impressed that our Attache, Oxford, and Valet luxury leather, executive collection will be with you at your 50th reunion; we know we

    The Attache Leather Bag and Oxford case for iPad Air

    Mr PQ, myself and the team have been waiting some time to reveal these two new products.  We are thrilled to announce our new full leather bag and iPad Air case. This is what we mean when we say Crafted, Pad & Quill. - Mrs.PQ(Kari)

    The Short Story

    The Attache Leather Bag:  You’ve aged to the realization that your taste buds and your liver deserve top shelf, savored in a glass. Your clothes are tailored to fit and you exude a quiet confidence when you enter a room. The Attache is the perfect companion to a busy professional who works hard and has earned an appreciation for the finer things of life.

    The Oxford:  Pulling out your iPad Air just became a new experience in tactile perfection. Whether it’s reading in the evening or getting some work done, on the desk this handmade case provides a minimalist iPad Air case approach that adds thick, smooth leather and soft suede. Prop it, hold it like a paperback, either way your going to love touching it. We won’t tell.

    The Full Tale

    The Leather: The Best.

    When you consider our leather quality, begin by sorting a 100 hides of American grass-fed cattle. You might select 20 hides and now you are holding the best hides in the world, period. Those other 80 hides are split, chopped, pressed, stamped, dyed and shipped to some overseas 'genuine' leather factory. Our hides are shipped to San Pancho, Mexico where
