As the song goes, I’m “just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit” who took that midnight train to Las Vegas. I grew up and was schooled in Michigan, going to elementary school in the suburbs (Our Lady of Good Counsel), high school downtown Detroit (University of Detroit Jesuit) and college on the west side of the state (Western Michigan University) and while I have loved the time spent in Michigan I felt it was time for an adventure, not to mention a job, and expanded my horizons elsewhere.
After pain-staking week after week of not connecting with a job opportunity that matched my level of schooling, I decided to take a step back to look at internships on the college job search site. I was led to an internship offer from Pricefalls.com. After a few days of considering the position (benefits, work to be done, not to mention distance) I decided to go with fate and send in a resume, after all they were located on Dean Martin Dr, a life-time idol of mine.
The next 2 weeks happened faster than I expected as I was emailed a letter of interest, set up a telephone interview time, and then offered the position! I must admit I was somewhat surprised, having stumbled a few times during the interview, but my mother reminded me how much of my own critic I am and that I most likely did great (mothers are the best). I proceeded to reflect on accepting the offer. While you most likely know the conclusion of that reflecting period, I decided to take the position, make the move, and start a position as an intern/consultant in a state in which I knew no one.
That leaves us where I am currently; staying in the Panorama Towers downtown Las Vegas, with a few members of the Pricefalls core team learning more and more of the platform every day and eagerly awaiting my next project and being able to speak up and offer my thoughts on a fully functional and game changing website.
The purpose of this blog is two fold: to 1) update you on lessons learned in the office and on what Pricefalls.com is up to and 2) the plot behind the story of living, working and staying focused in the most distracting city in the world. So, I implore you to come to this blog on a regular basis and check on me, send me comments and words of advice and visit Pricefalls.com!
Until next time buyers, sellers and friends!
