Just Launched: Web Design & Development Grad Sean Casey

 

 

 

In FSBlog’s Just Launched feature, we talk to brand new Full Sail graduates, right out the door from graduation, about what’s next for them as they head out into the workforce. This month’s Just Launched graduate is Sean Casey.

Name: Sean Casey

Degree Program: Web Design & Development

Graduation Date: June 7, 2013

First Job: I’ll be starting full-time Monday [yesterday] as a developer at AssistRX, which is right here in Orlando. They make web applications that help medical professionals streamline and facilitate the process of filling out prescriptions for special medications. I’ll be working on the back end of those web applications as a developer.

How You Got Your Foot in the Door: Back in January, the Career Development office sent me an e-mail for the opportunity to intern with AssistRX. During the original interview, they wanted to offer me a full-time position as a developer. When I told them my schedule wouldn’t allow for it, they offered me the internship knowing that I’d move to the full-time developer position after I graduated.

Before Graduation: [AssistRX] was pretty much the only internship I had. It was about three days a week, working on the web design and front end of their various products. Having an opportunity to work on the front end first before moving to the back end is a great experience, it has helped me see how the entire company works.

Down the Road: In the next year, I’ll probably still be working at AssistRX as a developer and I plan on taking on some freelance work.

Long-Term Goal: Depending on how much freelance work I get, I’d like to eventually work on my own as an independent contractor. I also want to continue working on my final project, Tailored Fitness, which is an application for trainers and gyms.

    Amy Cassell:
    The AssistRX and Career Development links don’t work.
    AssistRX returns an error message.
    Career Development says it’s not available on Mobile.
    As a potential web development student this doesn’t give me a good feeling that Fullsail is up to date w/technology.
    Although you can’t control AssistRX’s page being down, you can control Mobile content being avaialble. 82% of homes/businesses access the internet via Mobile Browser on multiple platforms. One thing that should always be checked is Mobile compatability.
    This was a good article promoting one of your graduates but you failed him and your Web Development program by NOT having good links. This should not happen again in the future but I realize we are humans.

    • Hi Beau – Thank you for your comments. We’ve updated the AssistRX URL and our team is currently looking into the mobile responsiveness issue with our Career Development page.

        Thanks for the update and sorry to be so harsh. My background as a web developer since 1995 does give me some insight. I’m looking to update my skills and learn the new web development and Mobile app development of today.
