This update comes to us from Claude Green, the Career Services Director at the Houston MyComputerCareer Campus. Claude wanted to highlight Adrian Vincent this week because Adrian applied for a position along with other candidates who were more experienced, but he landed the job because he impressed the employer with his hard work and passion for doing the job right.
“This week I wanted to highlight Adrian Vincent. Adrian was working on a project with Capital One that ended last Friday. He had been there for a few months supporting a migration. He called me to tell me the project was ending and he needed to find additional employment quickly. I sent his resume over to C3 Solutions and Adrian was called in for an aptitude test and then called back two days later for an in-person interview. The hiring manager told Adrian that he had interviewed candidates with twice as much experience but half the passion. Adrian convinced the hiring manager to give him a shot. Adrian told him if after 30 days he couldn’t cut it then they would part ways. Adrian started work the very next day. At the end of the day the hiring manager gave Adrian a key to the building and said I liked everything I saw from you today and you asked all the right questions .…so welcome aboard!!!”
Prior to coming to MyComputerCareer.com, Adrian had worked in construction for 20 years. He had aspirations to get into the IT industry, and we were able to help him realize meet those goals at MyComputerCareer.com. Adrian is also an aspiring golfer. Sadly, we were unable to help him with that dream, but at least we helped him get started in the IT industry.
