Bryce Darling

I work as a programmer for Mindscape at Hanon McKendry. My job revolves around implementing new features and fixing bugs in our webTRAIN Content Management System used by most of our clients. I am responsible for making our applications functional. I do NOT make the pretty pictures or content that goes in them. Aside from building web sites I have also been developing Facebook applications for our clients' social media campaigns. What do I love about my job? I love the time I DO NOT have to spend in the office! Here at Mindscape at Hanon McKendry we work hard and as a reward we get 4 day weekends and the option to work from home on Mondays and Fridays. I got the interview for this job through a reference from a company I previously worked for. During my interview I was asked why I had not found this available position using LinkedIn, so if you're looking for a job I suggest trying to network wherever possible and don't forget the unlimited resources available online.

Abigayle Sloan

On a daily basis at FOX 17, I am responsible for generating story ideas, doing research, setting up interviews, conducting interviews, writing stories, presenting them on air live, and in the studio. I am also responsible for producing content for the web, and promoting my social media pages, like facebook and twitter. Sometimes I even do my own camera work and editing. Every day is different in this industry. One day I'm covering a natural disaster, the next I'm learning how to fly an airplane. Most of the time, I am on a tight deadline, and the position always requires good time management. Sound news judgment and good morals are a must in this business. I'm always out on the road meeting new people, and taking risks in trying new things. I'm hardly at my desk, and there is rarely a dull moment at FOX 17!

Joel A. Mann

I handle a number of clients throughout the country – providing web design, graphics design, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), social media, branding, traditional marketing, media marketing, and other things that fall under these categories. I started Thunderstruck to provide the marketing of the big firms to the companies and entrepreneurs with the small budgets. I regularly design logos, design and created websites, banners, custom layouts for social media, dvd and cd label design, and many other things. I also work on analyzing inbound links and website traffic to improve the search engine placement of different sites and am constantly monitoring and changing the sites as such. It can be a bit demanding, but it's stuff that I love to do, so it doesn't really seem like work.

Terry Rayment

As a designer at DVS, I am able to handle our ever growing client base by assisting with project management and client relations as well as adding another innovative vision to the company's existing skill set.  I most recently worked in the Chicago market as a Director of Photography on commercial and corporate shoots along with training in digital composition / design.

I wanted to work at DVS Creative because of the potential I saw in working with their existing clientele. DVS is a known name, a brand, but DVS Creative is still very much a young company. It's nice to be a part of a growing organization. Plus the people are fantastic, and that is really important anywhere you work.

Anthony Zack

My primary responsibility at Davenport University is to provide web-enabled solutions for students, faculty and staff.  These custom solutions are tailored to the individual client's need and are designed to help foster a successful learning environment.  Many of these projects are developed using the open source web technology, Drupal.  The Drupal framework allows me to focus on a client's functional requirements without sacrificing quality while adhering to best practices.  As a young internet system architect I spend a large portion of my time researching the latest developments in Drupal, social media and web development.  I use these skills to build applications that are both functionally sound and not overly difficult to use.  I have been given a unique opportunity at Davenport University to build applications that keep students connected using integration techniques with social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Flicker.  This allows student to stay in touch with the University whether they are in the classroom or online.

It's great to be back!
