Eitan recently acquired a job as a web developer for Goodale Systems, Inc.; helping to create web applications for healthcare providers across the US.

Eitan began the job hunt relatively late, during the summer after graduating. He joined several job searching websites, updated his LinkedIn profile, revamped his resume and began searching for a job that would allow him to utilize some of the skills he gained at the University of California Santa Cruz. He eventually got in contact with Goodale Systems, Inc. The intimate LA-based company produces web applications for healthcare providers across the US. As a web developer for the company, Eitan's job entails creating fully functional web applications that are tailor made to the requests of Goodale's clients.

Eitan has the following advice for aspiring web developers: In addition to learning HTML, CSS, Javascript, Python, and SQL) focus on building a strong portfolio. Build your own web/mobile application, join a hackathon with a group of like-minded individuals, and put your programming skills to the test. If you can show a potential employer that you can actually build fully functional software based applications you will be ahead of the curve.
