Hi there! My name is Mike Kohn, and I’m the new guy. I just started working here a few days ago, and I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you my first impressions of Insight Designs.
I graduated from the University of Colorado a few years back with a degree in Astronomy. People would often ask me, “What are you going to do with a degree like that?” and I would always reply, “Make websites, of course!” I randomly landed at an HTML tutorial website several years ago, and I immediately caught the web bug (the good kind). I’ve spent a good deal of my time since that fateful day learning as much as I can about web development, and practicing what I’ve learned by making websites for myself, customizing blogs, and even trying my hand at a little graphic design (you know, to make the sites look good).
I came to a point, though, where I wanted something more than just making websites for myself and friends. I wanted to get a job in the web development field so I could be immersed in my passion daily. I even made a website to prove it – mikeneedsajob.com.
Luckily, I found exactly what I was looking for!
Beth and Nico hired me a short time ago as a Testing Specialist. It will be my job to make sure all of our products pass a final inspection before being delivered to the client. It’s uncommon to find this type of position at small and mid-sized web firms, but from what I’ve gathered about the people at Insight Designs so far, they expect nothing but the best. The fact that my job even exists goes to show their commitment to quality.
I am super excited to start working with this very professional, very intelligent group of designers and programmers. I can’t wait to be elbows-deep in their awesome websites and programs, testing away.
In fact, I should probably go now and get started on my real work. And in my freetime, I guess I should convert mikeneedsajob.com to mikegotajob.com. It seems only fitting.
