Mr. Fernando Correa found work as a professional designer in the Hull Engineering department at General Dynamics. Correa completed the Interactive Media Certificate Program (IMCP) through Continuing Education in June 2008. He was one of 50 candidates for his job, and when the opportunity came along, he had both his technical skills and his communication/job search skills ready, thanks to the teachers and career counselors at Continuing Education. “The experience of showing your material in class and getting criticized is priceless,” he says. “That experience makes you stronger, and gives you the ability to answer questions with enough detail to be understood.”
Fernando Correa’s original degree was in Drafting and Design Engineering Technology. However, it was not until he combined his engineering background with digital media arts technology that his career took off. Now, he is doing work he loves and is eager to keep learning.
