Beth finds a clear career path and job with Being Design!

Coming to Hopeworks, I was unsure of what career path I wanted to take. I was working part time as a home health aid and needed a second job. I came across Hopeworks on a job posting site and reached out. I was called the next day for an interview. Thankfully, I took the interview because Hopeworks introduced me to my current career path in website development! 

Hopeworks introduced me to web development through the training modules in HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and Photoshop. I then was able to work as an intern for Hopeworks Web business and take what I learned and apply it to client projects. During my internship, I was able to help Hopeworks launch multiple websites and assist with the maintenance of many client websites.  The internship has also helped me gain more experience in working remotely. I was able to hold a lead position and help new team members who joined us during the pandemic, all while meeting client deadlines. 

After a long job search during the pandemic, Hopeworks connected me to Being Design, where I now have a professional job! I’m able to continue to grow as a developer and provide website maintenance for their clients. I’m thankful to be able to continue to build my skill set and to learn more everyday.

“Hopeworks has defined a clear career path for me and a still growing skill set in web development. I’m honored to hold the title of an alumna as it shows with hard work, you can move forward and progress.” - Beth Antrilli
