Sure, when you’re looking for someone to hire you have plenty of options. I know, I used to hire people all of the time and took a lot for someone to stand out in the crowd. You know, like writing a blog post on why you should hire me. As I said, there are many reasons, here’s just a few.
1. I’m a full-stack developer with a diverse background
2. I take great selfies
See that picture up there. That’s from Christmas day and I was in Hawii.
Ok, so it was my honeymoon, but still.
3. I’m REALLY motivated
Yea, that’s my house. I recently bought it and, since it’s about 120 years old, it needs A LOT of work. Want to know if I’m going to work hard and show up on time? I gotta make those mortgage payments!!
But seriously, I’m a hard worker and a quick study.
4. Calm under pressure
I work well under pressure. Want proof? I once appeared as a guest on the O’Reilly Factor (sans beard) and had Bill yell at me for about 7 minutes. But, I held my own and have the video to prove it.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, James is a lifelong fan of all of the Philadelphia sports teams, which had brought him nothing but pain and misery for as long as he can remember.
After studying Journalism at The Pennsylvania State University and having a short-lived career as a journalist, James moved to Boston to work for a startup called Brafton. Hired as employee number six, the company grew and James moved to Chicago in 2011 to open Brafton’s Chicago office. By the time James left the company in 2014, Brafton had grown to approximately 400 employees.
Now after studying Web Development at General Assembly, James is ready to take on the new chapter of his life as a full-stack developer.
