The previous version of my Web page had my resumé posted on it, and one day, a young woman who used to live in Staten Island went to Yahoo, and did a search on Staten Island. Apparently, my resumé was one of the first pages listed (I have never been able to reproduce this). She happened to be looking for a web designer/producer, and when she saw my resumé, she sent me an email asking me to call her if I was interested in a job. I interviewed twice, and started working there in December, 1996.
The company is a large corporation at the heart of the financial services industry. Due to issues our Legal Department has with the online world, I am not allowed to mention their name. However, I can give my job description, and describe what kinds of things I work on during the day.
The team I work with is responsible for our company's online access to account information, stock quotes, news, research, etc. We work up business plans and requirements documents, and we define new projects, which we then develop with our programmers on the technical side. We also keep up-to-date with the latest technology, and we try to find the next Big Thing to either invest in, or to license and leverage.
We get to work with Photoshop to design new additions to our Web site, and we're always getting to play with new "toys" to see what's new and cool in the world of technology.
It's a lot of fun sometimes, and it's constantly challenging. I tend to get bored pretty easily, and I have a short attention span when it comes to things I don't enjoy, but things are always changing over there, and there's always something new and different to work on, so I'm still happy. Sorry I can't link to their page to show you the neat things we've done, but our lawyers would tell me to take it down. I think their restriction is silly, but it's a small price to pay for happiness at work.
Especially since I like my co-workers and my manager, and I respect just about everyone I work with and work for.
