Please tell us about your career path and how you found your way to Fast Enterprises.

Clint Tuttle, a MIS Professor, sent an email about Fast Enterprises when I was still working at my first job out of school as an IT Engineer at Hewlett Packard. I was interested so I read a little about it and then I applied. I got an interview and an offer, accepted it and I am still working for FAST today.

What do you like about working for Fast Enterprises?

I like working on difficult projects and improving my software engineering skills while having a large business impact. I enjoy being able to build my social skills by interacting with clients and gathering business requirements.

The compensation is great. There is an opportunity to become a manger/team lead very early in your career if you have the aptitude to lead others. FASTies also get the opportunity to travel all around the United States and even international locations. Consultants are posted in one location for long enough to experience the culture of the place they are working and get to know people living in the city.

Please share your general career advice?

Don’t limit yourself to a specific company or place when looking for a job. Be more open minded.
