I am Joe Morales

I am a Front-End Web Developer located in Oklahoma City, OK. I just graduated from The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley with a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems Technology (BAT.CIS). I've been working, however, as a Web master/designer for the past four years on campus. I have worked with 7 different departments and with over 150 faculty/staff members. I am looking to take on more work and to increase my skills as a Web developer.

It has been my good fortune to have Jose Morales employed at the Vackar College of Business & Entrepreneurship. He requires very little direct supervision; however, he does not hesitate to ask for guidance or clarification of instructions when necessary. Additionally, when explaining the status of his projects, or when depending upon others to provide him with information required for his next step in accomplishing a project, Jose is patient.

Jose will enhance your organization with his abilities, knowledge, determination, and demeanor. As with many of our part-time student workers that graduate and transition to the "real world," we will be losing a valuable member of our organization, but to your benefit.

UTRGV

I have personally witnessed his skills in HTML, CSS and SharePoint. He not only possesses deep knowledge in various computer programs but also has a knack in easily learning new technologies. He often goes beyond his job requirements and helps colleagues and instructors with any computer related challenges they may have. Even if he does not have expertise in the area, he solves the problem by studying and looking up the solution on his own.

In my assessment, he should be a valuable addition to any organization he joins.

While under my supervision, he was our web developer in the division of enrollment services for the University of Texas at Brownsville since 2013. Responsibilities in that position required him to redesign our enrollment web pages. He had to work closely with all directors within enrollment services and develop content and images that were created and proposed to directors before posting on the website.

He exercises the highest of ethical standards and professionalism in his work and his personal life.

I recommend him without reservations.
