Social Responsibilities

My Job (AT&T's Technology Development Program)

It has always been my duty to get individuals interested in the field of Information Technology professionally developed and ready to accept a role in the IT field upon graduation or completion of a technology program. With my position with AT&T, I can do just that.

Online Presence (Thought Leadership)

I have learned over the years that your online presence is significant, especially when seeking employment in your field. Employers are now looking beyond your resume to make sure the candidate they are looking to hire is a good fit (socially and professionally), enthusiastic and knowledgable within their field and a continual learner. These are just a few aspects that make up a thought leader. I work with my peers constantly to build their online reputation as thought leaders within their fields through various online mediums.
