Interview With Andres Robayo – Website Designer For MyCity Social
Here at MyCity Social we have been delighted to welcome Andres Robayo into our team after showing us his work ethic and talents during his internship with us. Here is a blog to learn more about our Orlando webdesign specialist Andres and what he brings to the table.
How Did You End Up at MyCity Social?
I came in for an interview because I saw an ad on the internet. I was looking for an internship. Nickie and Steven interviewed me. They gave me a little test to make sure that I knew how to change things accurately and work with wordpress.
Why An Internship?
I wanted to gain experience in the field. This was not required by full sail. It was important to me because I could learn new things, contribute to a company, gain valuable experience, and get used to what the work would be like in the field of Orlando webdesign.
When I started it was not a guarantee that I would get a job. My main interest was more in obtaining experience. But after a few months, I was offered a part-time position working for the company and here I am
What is your Background?
I am studying website design and development at Full Sail. This is my last year, and I have about 5 months to go. My interest in this field came about in the last few years.
Before getting into this, I was in the field of art conservation. If you go to a museum or a library, these are the people in charge of making sure the art is well kept.
What is Next For You Andres?
Hopefully working with coding. I would like to develop my coding skills further.
What is the Funnest Part About Your Job?
From a design point of view, it is the creative process. I really enjoy the design part as it is more visual. I feel coding is also very creative as you have to come up with different ways to solve the problem, I will say that it is harder.
What is the Hardest or your Least Favorite Part of Your Job?
It can get really tricky when it comes to servers and stuff like that. For example, setting a server (getting it ready to work/configuration).
Describe a Typical Day In The Office
I check my task manager and I check what assignments I have to do for the day. I work on the website tweaks, making changes to our customer’s wishes, making new websites, and work in conjunction with our SEO specialist.
Where Are You From & How Do You Think that Affects You As a Person?
I am from Colombia. I have been living in the USA since 2010. I came because my wife had family here and so we decided to move here and be with them. It has been hard, but at the same time it has been very rewarding.
I think that I had to make a lot of changes to adjust to this culture due to the fact that I come from a very different one. I am very dedicated to my work, and that is something that I think MyCity Social really appreciates.
