The Domino Effect

Posted by Ralph Giovenco on Thu, Mar 14, 2013

You've probably done this yourself. Set up a line of dominos - knock one over and they all follow. There are TONS of crazy domino videos on YouTube and elsewhere. In life, the domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when one change causes a similar change nearby.

Two weeks ago, I received an email from an IT hiring manager at a Houston company. They needed PC Technicians to start in ONE WEEK! I sent a MyComputerCareer graduate on an interview the next day, Tuesday. He came to us unemployed and was looking for a way into a computer career. On Thursday, he was hired! Last Monday he started!!! This graduate was so well qualified for the position, and prepared for the interview, the company decided to hire THREE MORE MyComputerCareer students!

MyComputerCareer is more than getting you prepared for a computer certification. We get you prepared for a computer CAREER. It's IT skills, applied knowledge, interview know-how, and the success our graduates have demonstrated in the field.

Hard Work and Passion land Adrian Vincent a new IT Career

Posted by Bill Sallada on Mon, Aug 15, 2011

This update comes to us from Claude Green, the Career Services Director at the Houston MyComputerCareer Campus.  Claude wanted to highlight Adrian Vincent this week because Adrian applied for a position along with other candidates who were more experienced, but he landed the job because he impressed the employer with his hard work and passion for doing the job right.

"This week I wanted to highlight Adrian Vincent.  Adrian was working on a project with Capital One that ended last Friday.  He had been there for a few months supporting a migration.  He called me to tell me the project was ending and he needed to find additional employment quickly.  I sent his resume over to C3 Solutions and Adrian was called in for an aptitude test and then called back two days later for an in-person interview.  The hiring manager told Adrian that he had interviewed candidates with twice as much experience but half the passion.  Adrian convinced the hiring manager to give him a shot.  Adrian told him if after 30 days he couldn’t cut it then they would part ways.  Adrian started work the very next day.  At the end of the day the hiring manager gave Adrian a key to the building and said I liked everything I saw from you today and you asked all the right questions .…so welcome aboard!!!"

Prior to coming to, Adrian had worked in construction for 20 years.  He had aspirations to get into the IT industry, and we were able to help him realize meet those goals at  Adrian is also an aspiring golfer.  Sadly, we were unable to help him with that dream, but at least we helped him get started in the IT industry.
