Jamaica Ramos Cañeda – Programmer
Hi, I’m Jamaica! I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology in June 2018.
As a fresh graduate I do not have that much work experience that I can share, but I can tell you about my experiences during my internship days…
I interned for three companies, the first one I only worked there for a day. Yes, just a day! I quit because even though I enjoyed the task (I was a Q.A Tester intern) I did not like the environment.
My second internship lasted for a week. Just like with the first one, I did enjoy my tasks (I was a video editor, a transcriptionist, and Front-end WordPress developer), but the place was too far away and the workplace was too stressful. So I decided to look for another one and became an IT intern for a month in a hospital. We were tasked to help in the development of their new website. We did manual testing, data entry jobs and we assisted and supported the issues of their previous website.
Right after graduation, I tried to apply to different companies but repeatedly failed because I did not have enough skills and experience. I decided to stop applying for a job for about a year. What I did instead was to continue volunteering. I am a Youth Leader in our church. I have been teaching and discipling 7 youth girls in our group for more than 3 years now. I am also a Life Class teacher and a Youth leader in one of our campus ministries.
I know technically speaking I don’t have that much experience, but I want to start my career as a Virtual Assistant. Maybe I don’t have any experience yet in this field, but I am willing to invest my time in learning new skills.
