Full-Time Job Offer

As the President/CEO of a sub 10 employee company I have my hands in everything. I continue to learn and read industry research to stay on top of the latest trends both on a day-to-day basis and for the company vision as a whole. I relay that information to the development team to ensure we’re employing the latest standards and maintaining a cutting edge product. As with most companies, without sales the lights go off so I also manage the sales and marketing team to ensure we hit sales goals month over month. To maintain control and increase cash-flow I submit our business plan and pitch decks to start up competitions, to date we’ve raised $40,000+ in rewards. Additionally, I meet with venture capitalist and consultants in Philadelphia to expand growth and continue adding talented people to our expanding development team.

My time studying management information systems helped build a foundation for applications development, systems architecture, and project management. Internet development is a quickly evolving space, the application development courses I took helped me understand why we’re doing certain things today like mobile responsiveness and async javascript because our professor went back to explore its early development with us. By understanding the why and how behind technologies that just seemed like “magic” before has allowed me to continue improving what others have built in the past instead of just utilizing the technologies has they are today.

E-Portfolio

Digital presence has become a focal point as our lives continue to be more entrenched in the digital world. The E-Portfolio’s that the MIS department lets students build using the WordPress platform are perfect for showcasing our talent and giving an example of our technical skillsets with a technology like WordPress. I’ve learned more about the WordPress platform by creating my E-Portfolio and how it can be utilized at an enterprise level.

Fox IT Awards

Networking is the backbone of business and relationships, as students if we’d like to get jobs after graduating we’re going to need to network. The IT awards are an excellent opportunity to meet alumni in firms looking to hire more Temple MIS students. I met with a couple alum their for that reason and received a number of business cards to follow up with.
