Today, one of our talented candidates Andrew got placed after less than two weeks of Working with
A Connecticut native, Andrew was called out to Boston for a job opportunity in January. That was when he “kinda sorta put the college stuff on hold” to pursue a career in Web Development.
In June, he decided to pursue independent projects while seeking other employment, and soon enough, our Brian Jenkins contacted him to lend a hand. “I’m not even sure how he found me,” says Andrew. Ah, the mysteries and magic of Workbridge.
Andrew explained that “Before all this, [he] had only taken one computer science class in high school.” While we’re sure that one class breeds geniuses left and right, most of his expertise lies in HTML/CSS, which was almost entirely self-taught.
Now that Andrew’s been placed with a company that offers flexible hours, he’ll be able to continue work on his own projects, “and that’s really where all my knowledge comes from,” he says. And the job? “It seems really great. I had lunch with the CEO yesterday. They’re great people.” Good work, team!
“It was pretty fast. That first day I came in I met with like three different people, which was pretty cool—and you! So it was great. Today I came in and it could’ve taken a lot longer than it did but Brian was pretty helpful.” - Andrew
