I recently turned down an offer for a Web Developer position with a very well-known and respected, Chicago-based company. Why, you ask? Well, for one thing, I’ve known people who’ve worked there before and they all ended up leaving after less than a year. The position was also just not a good fit for me, personally, and my instinct told me that my creative talents would be better utilized elsewhere.
But more importantly than that, I’ve taken some time to think about what kind of career I want to have. I want to explore as many exciting career opportunities as possible and I believe that I was destined for great things. Chicago is an amazing and rapidly-changing place to be working as a young web professional these days and ever since I launched this Bleachwave website I’ve had many interesting people contacting me about opportunities of all shapes and sizes.
It is for this reason that I have decided to start my own web design and development company: City Lights Creative.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, this is no longer happening as I have accepted a full-time position with the company of my dreams, Razorfish.
