Why are you passionate about your field/role?
Ever since we had an old E-Machine at home when I was in elementary school I was always interested in computers. As technology kept getting better I knew that it was here to stay and I wanted to be part of it. I love being able to help others by making sure we are secure and safe online.
What does “going further” mean to you in your career?
Going further to me means gaining more knowledge to be able to help out others that are starting out. It doesn’t necessarily mean to be in a better position. To me being able to be more efficient in my day-to-day tasks at work is going further. With due time I can be in roles that require more responsibility but I am not in a rush. I am enjoying the ride and Seen has helped me get here.
What drove you to look for a new role?
After going to college and eventually dropping out last year because I didn’t feel the major I was in was what I wanted to do. Afterwards, I was terminated from my employment and I knew I had to find a career. I wanted to stop getting any random job and stick with something. After researching online I found out I can start off as help desk and move my way up the field. I started with an internship on August 2018 and from there on out I’ve been in this field.
How did Seen help in your job search?
It helped me see what is out there. Unfortunately there aren’t many IT job opportunities where I live and was a little worried I might not find one. One day during work I get an email from an employer letting me know they can offer me a job because of what they had viewed on Seen. I was surprised and very happy that they gave me an opportunity.
What excites you about your new company/role?
It’s very exciting to be able to work for a company that trusts you. I really want to stay here for as long as possible and be able to gain as much experience. Everybody here is very kind and respectable. They will help you out if you need anything and I really appreciate it. I know that with the knowledge and experience I will gain here, it will help me grow in this new field. I can’t wait to keep on using Seen for new opportunities.
