In the summer of 2001, I continued working as a freelance web developer by beginning work on a site for the New York State Chapter, American College of Cardiology. This job was very similar to the one I performed for NYCMS, described below. The site is currently still under development.
In the summer of 2000, I worked as a freelance web developer and created a new web site for the New York County Medical Society. You can follow the link to see my work product. My development activities included evaluating the old web site, creating a requirements document with the NYCMS staff to specify the functionality of the new site, creating a database system and writing software to interface between it and the web, and designing the look and feel of the web site.
Due to the nature of the work, I was able to work mostly out of my home office, making trips into the Manhattan offices of NYCMS every couple weeks to meet with the staff and discuss the progress of the project. This was by far my most enjoyable and fulfilling work experience to date. I maintain a site maintenance relationship with this organization.
In the summer of 1999, I took an internship at Lucent Technologies in Warren, NJ. I worked in the Global Service Provider organization within Lucent's CFO. The group supported the implementation of the "Global Enterprise Solution," Lucent's name for the initiaitive which oversaw the implementation of the company's new ERP system, based around SAP software.
My job activities included designing an internal web site to archive meeting and presentation materials, assisting data entry and extraction efforts to support the SAP implementation, and database programming to support legacy system integration efforts.
In the summer of 1998, I interned at AT&T Corp. in Morristown, NJ. My position was with the Central Billing Party (CBP), a small organization within the International Cable Billing department.
The CBP works on under contract from the many telecommunications companies that share ownership in undersea cable lines, collecting the bills from the cable suppliers and reditributing their fees amongst the owners according to their share of the cables.
My job was to develop an extranet application for the CBP that would allow its many external customers secure access over the web to an internal database of billing information. I had a very positive experience working for the CBP because I was able to work on my own personal project from beginning to end, and because I learned about an interesting yet little-known part of the telecommunications business.
The summer after I graduated high school, I worked as an intern in AT&T's CFO, supporting the Financial Reengineering intiative going on at the time. During my internship, I developed an internal web site to house various presentations, calendars, and meeting notes. I also assisted in Microsoft Access database maintenance and PowerPoint presentation design and maintenance.
During my high schools years, I worked a few summers and weekends at Lucky Star Computers, a small, local retailer of computer systems and components. There, I was a technician, assembling computer systems to order and providing technical support to customers over the phone.
