Education and Career

My name is Brandon Pretelt and I’m a student at Utah Valley University. I’m currently studying Web Design and Development with an emphasis in Web and App Development. I first became interested in web development all the way back in the 8th grade when I first learned about HTML and CSS. I made a few basic sites. Soon after, I took a Desktop Publishing class and used Adobe InDesign when I was a freshman in high school. This sparked my initial love for creating digital content. It was when I was a sophomore in high school when web development and I were reunited. That’s when I decided to take more web development courses at school. I was then introduced to JavaScript soon after and decided that I wanted to learn more about development so, once I graduated from high school, I signed up for Digital Media at Utah Valley University and, well, here I am.

My present education goals are being able to learn as much about web development as I can. My biggest goal is learning how to use React and create awesome web apps. I also want to couple this together to my recently newfound love for back-end development and learn more about working with databases and the like. I have a taste for MongoDB and I want to expand to Postgres and SQL.

My entry level goal is being able to find a good job that I can apply my skills to. I want to build web apps for clients that can get use good out of them and I want to learn as much as I can while doing so. I highly enjoy learning and I hope that I can achieve this goal of mine in the near future.

My long term career goal is to become a developer at Qualtrics. I interviewed there in the past and wasn’t offered a position and ever since then, I have been striving to get better in order to become a developer there.
