Paul is an IT Professional with over 8 years of experience currently working as a Network Administrator in contract support of various Federal Agencies in the United States.
Paul began his career by volunteering his computer skills at his local church at the age of 16. He identified a technology problem the church was having and designed a system to fix it . Other IT Professionals at the church encouraged Paul to continue utilizing his skills to gain experience, and emphasized that he should include it on his resume even though his experience wasn't paid. Based solely on the experience he gained volunteering, a large DoD contracting company hired Paul as an intern. As his career progressed, Paul moved on to another Large company to work full time.
Paul constantly pushes himself to increase the depth of his knowledge in the field of Information Technology and expand his skill-set, whether on the job or at home. Paul gratefully notes that he “had the blessing of working alongside highly motivated and talented professionals” who continually inspired and pushed him to take challenges head-on, and to make EVERYTHING you can out of opportunities that arise while on the job. His motto is "Any job is what you make of it. You write your own resume and paycheck by your drive to succeed."
Paul's goal on Udemy is to help YOU get an IT job by providing you a basic skill-set. The fact is that most entry level IT jobs (Help Desk) in the NCR are paying only 10k under the median HOUSE HOLD income from just ONE entry level job and a much higher potential to double or triple the median house hold income throughout one's career. The IT field is viewed as very difficult to enter, but if you have a good skill-set and determination to succeed, you WILL get hired!
