Michael Brandt

Junior Web Developer, Booj

Do you enjoy your job? Where do you see your career going in the future?
I love my job at booj! Everyday is action packed with plenty of things to do to keep me busy. I see my career staying on the same path as it is now. Everyday I enjoy getting up in the morning and going to work. Not to mention all of the dogs at my office (http://boojers.com/gallery/booj-hounds )

How do you maintain a work-life balance?
It’s actually a lot easier to do this after you graduate. Once I leave the office, I can do whatever my heart desires.

How did your time at Spiders prepare you for this position? Any skills that have helped you in the workplace?
Spiders really taught me how to work in a real production environment. Before Spiders, I never knew what it was like to work on a real project with a real work flow.

What advice do you have for Spiders in regards to securing a job/internship?
Just be yourself and also be confident during the interviewing process. If you sound like you know what you are talking about, chances are, they will believe you.

What general advice do you have for graduating Spiders?
Apply, apply, apply. Pick some different states you are interested in living in and apply. This is the only time you will be able to move wherever you’d like with a pretty good job.

What do you miss the most about Spiders?
Having the ability to work on a side project and Jono talking about what’s on his mind.
