Having graduate in June 2018 with a Hdip in Computer Science, Software Design I’ve been working full-time since October in a processing manufacturing role in Intel for contractors Retronix. In free time, I’m spending it upskilling and writing code in order make myself the choice candidate for any future roles I’m considered for.
I’ve artistic ability and 3d modeling and design skills. Having worked a degree in product design, I know how to use Solidworks, Fusion360, Illustrator, Photoshop and SketchBookPro. Along with 3d modeling skills, I can sculpt and create texture maps, use rendering packages with awareness of how light works, photography and composition. In regards to design, I can conduct research, develop concepts and provide solutions to problems through the design process with an awareness of human psychology.
Where ever I have been employed I’ve always given my best. My discipline record is second to none, my punctuality is close to perfect and ask anyone I have worked with or under and they will agree, I work hard.
The demand for software engineers is growing. When searching for job openings in product design many were software based product design. I had a dilemma, stick with product design and most likely get a job in sign making, which is fine except nowadays the only realistic way to have a middle class income is though other fields. One of those of course is programming, so after being out of employment for a year and trying my hardest to get a job in product design I tried out learning some programming to see if it was something I would have the intelligence and interest in. After a hard working 9 months, I acquired a 1:1 Hdip in Software Development and at a stage where I have the ability to write good software.
I’ve yet to land a starting role, even after several interviews, but it is only a matter of time. I’m certainly good enough, but need to convince employers this is the case.
