The Job Search — Week 1

Having recently graduated the Flatiron School’s Full Stack Web Development Program, I was ready to fully begin the job hunt.

Having always been interested in start-ups and small-to-midsize companies I’ve found sites such as and offer a great look at some very exciting opportunities in this space.

As for networking, I’m more than happy to connect, you can find me at:
