Veteran

David Roman Raleigh, NC

I've worked diligently on refining my LinkedIn, GitHub, and Personal Website. As of today, I'm actively seeking employment as a Front-end Web Developer / Front-end Engineer.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on my online presence/projects and constructive feedback.

I've brushed up my Linkedin, GitHub, and personal site, but I'm always open to suggestions.

Thank you for your service David. Frontend developer can show case a lot on GitHub and freelancing websites. Although you are looking for full time employment, considering freelancing meanwhile will help you show casing your work. Explore online presentation like Prezi for your profile and projects intro.

Good luck!

Thank you both for your input.

Daniel, I've started viewing the video. Interviewing for developer roles is probably my main area of focus right now (aside from connecting with hiring managers).

Gabriel, I'm open to employment in North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, Morrisville) or remote. As far as the domain of interest, I'm quite open as getting employed as a software developer is a bit of a career pivot for me.

David, solid LinkedIn profile; certainly sufficient to start applying to jobs. How can we help you build your network? Specifically, WHERE would you like to work (as in stay in Raleigh, open to certain locations, open to anywhere) and WHAT domain are you looking for (financial, government, Defense, etc.)

David,
This is probably the Transition advice you are looking for.

It looks like you are on a good track for yourself. There are a few things you will hear consistently: Network, network, network, practice your elevator speech and interviewing skills, and be open to opportunities.

Very Respectfully,
Daniel Sudmeier
