Here is a happy email from recent DCA grad Justin Curtis, who just so happens to know about a web design job opening...
Karen, you may recall that I completed the DCA certificate and had my portfolio review last Fall. I'm just writing to let you know what I've been doing since then and to let you know of a potential job opportunity that may be good for a DCA student or grad interested in web design.
After my portfolio review, I landed a job with a company called RealPractice. The company provides a number of services to small law firms and solo practicing attorneys, including practice management tools, online marketing services, and web design. I'm officially on the marketing team, but my job functions primarily entail building web sites for our clients. The company is also looking to expand offering their online marketing services to other types of professionals/businesses.
We have a need to fill another position similar to mine and you can find the job posting posted at our corporate website here. (It is the job posting entitled "Marketing Web Team Intern"). To clarify, this is a PAID position and is CONTRACT-TO-HIRE. (I don't think it actually states that in the posting). Initially, it will entail up to 35 hours a week of work on-site, with the potential to be hired on full-time. This is an opening that would be ideal for someone who wants to pursue a career in web design.
The office is located at 4 Hutton Centre Drive #680, Santa Ana, CA. It is right next door to South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, where the 405 and the 55 freeways meet.
I hope all is well with you and Scott. If you need any further information from me about this job opening, please let me know. If you think it is appropriate, it would be wonderful if you could help me get the word out about this job opportunity.
