Link Details

Two years ago, I was looking for part-time work. I was especially interested in working at a start-up but I didn’t really have perfect credentials for it. First off, I lived in Dallas and couldn’t move (my dad was sick). Second, I could only work part-time because I had to help at home. Third, I didn’t know how to program and had only had a couple of other jobs before, a few years in retail and waiting tables (neither of which are big selling points to the tech world). I knew my chances of getting hired at a hot start-up were slim to none.
