I would do myself and this company a disservice if I didn’t take time to thank the people at Schipul.
I believe everything happens for a reason and words cannot describe how much of a lifesaver this company has been in my life since I heard about it at the beginning of this year.
I graduated last year at Famu in this horrible economy and found it hard to find any type of employment as many recent graduates did. I worked a lot of odd jobs that were only temporary and that weren’t enjoyable. Through this tough time I started to get back into freelance web design as a way to keep some type of income and reconnected with Albert Hughes for consulting.
Reaching out to him I found out that he was employed at Schipul and he was more than generous to help me out. From there I researched the company and felt that it would be an awesome place to work. I liked the young energetic attitude the employees had, I liked the training they offered, and who wouldn’t want to work at a company when the first thing you see when you walk in is a Nintendo Wii? I applied for a SEO internship position but didn’t get it, but it turned out to be a blessing, because I know I wasn’t ready and I needed to do more research and practice on my own.
Although my web design skills were not perfect, I felt like I was more prepared when another internship position came up. It came at a perfect time because plans for grad school weren’t working out, and I was at the end of my rope. Some people might not have Faith that good things follow the bad, but I do. As a result I was in the exact place at the exact time for me to apply and enjoy my current internship on an interactive client team at Schipul as much as I do. Now I’m with a group of people who care and want to teach you. I love our clients and atmosphere and I am fortunate to say that I am at my dream job. Not many people in life have the opportunity to say that.
I’m blessed enough to say that on my first REAL job. So thanks to Schipul for letting me experience this.
