ALUMNI HIGHLIGHTS

SEAN HABEL

Game & Interactive Media

Sean is a 2015 Game & Interactive Media graduate who is currently a Backend Application Developer at StickOutSocial (www.stickoutsocial.com.) We asked Sean a few questions and here's what he had to say! 

 

What do you like most about working at StickOutSocial?

What I like most about working at StickOutSocial is definitely the environment. The dynamic of the environment is set up in such a way that you never feel pigeon-held into doing one thing and only one thing. With it being a smaller company, you are not only allowed to grow and learn how to do multiple things, but you are encouraged to. It is fantastic to be surrounded by people who love what they do and who are glad to help you grow.

What piece of advice do you have for TFC candidates currently job searching?

I have a few pieces of advice for students currently in the job search. First off, love what you do. If you do not love what you do, it shows. Nothing is more discouraging to employers than seeing the forced smiles and overwhelming dread of someone who is applying to a job that they don't really want. I understand that some situations require you to take a job that you don't love but if that is not the case then there is absolutely no use in taking a job that you don't want to do. Finding what you love to do regardless if you went to school for it will make your life significantly easier. You are more likely to be pushed to excel in something you love to do and you can always find ways to expand your skills. I personally went to Tribeca for Game Programming, something that I loved to do, and found in my second year that I really liked Web Development as well. Without having learned much in terms of backend development, I applied for an internship which I got and then rapidly built up my skills doing web development.

 

I think many people get stuck mentally thinking that they went to school to learn a very specific skill. Well, here is the way I see it: If you focus on learning a specific skill then you are wasting your time. It is far more important to learn how to learn and that may sound confusing at first, but look deeper into it. Being in an industry that involves technology that is constantly evolving, learning a specific skill for a technology that will be outdated in a year or two is not going to be beneficial; but learning to adapt to new technologies and new environments will be forever beneficial.

 

Lastly, I would say don't get discouraged. Finding a job is not always easy, often it isn't easy at all for most people but that doesn't mean give up, it means you try harder. Some jobs are just not meant for you. Some positions do not match your skill set. And even some companies don't match your personality. It is important to find a company that meshes well with your personal beliefs and will help guide your personal growth. Finding a job is as much of you picking the company as it is the company picking you.

INDUSTRY EVENTS

Join us for "Heading West," a free film and conversation on the history of African Americans on Chicago's West Side. The screening will take place on Friday, December 2, 2016 from 6:30-8:30pm at the BBF Center (1512 S. Pulaski).

Even before Chicago was founded as a city, the West Side of Chicago was home to a thriving community of African Americans. "Heading West" retraces the history of African Americans on Chicago's West Side through captivating archival footage and interviews. It traces the Black West Side experience from the very beginning, through two major migrations of Blacks from the deep south, through the turbulent sixties, up to the promise of the new millennium.

BBF Family Services, the 2016 Great Migration Centennial Commission, the North Lawndale Employment Newtork, Cook County Commission District 2, and Habilitative Systems, Inc. are proud to sponsor screenings of "Heading West" at various venues throughout Chicago.

Following the film, stay for the discussion and share your family's West Side story.

Compassion Adventure

Prevent human trafficking by helping the homeless.

We give out food to dozens, then eat together with a handful and work on helping prevent them from being trafficked. Helping them get jobs, free social services, and friends makes a critical difference in avoiding trafficking.

Come on down and lend a hand!

2PM EVERY SATURDAY

WE MEET AT THE STARBUCKS IN THE JEWEL AT:. 1340 S. CANAL. CHICAGO, canal is between State Street and the Dan Ryan Expressway

  • RSVP AT: compassionttr@gmail.com

  • Due to sensitive situations this is a women only event.

  • Smart phones and portable computers come in handy for accessing help.

  • Plz bring $10-20 to defray food and restoration expenses

  • Some present will be those in need of weekly mentoring.

  • Some could use gift cards, CTA transit cards, money belts, passport pouches, hugs

  • Simply coming, eating together, giving respect in your countenance and words can be of great effect to them.

  • Some present will not be survivors but those vulnerable to being so. Some who are survivors will not be identifying as survivors of human trafficking.

  • There will be some learning, but the focus is on us all giving love, respect and encouragement to those we love so much. The goal is to give love while sharing food and our hearts.

Mindfulness in Motion

You're dreaming big about your ideal life - who you want to be, what you want to do, where you want to go. You have an amazing vision of what that looks like and then a voice pops into your head that says "You're not good/brave/smart/good-looking/dedicated enough to accomplish that." And your dream disappears as quickly as a balloon accidentally released to the sky.

That voice is a liar. You ARE enough. You are AMAZING.

In this class we'll use journaling, visualization, and dancing to quiet that voice so you can be the strong, empowered, amazing person you are meant to be.

Come to clear your mind, move your body, and center your soul. You'll leave feeling refreshed & more self-aware (physically & mentally) - plus you'll gain clarity on how to bring more positive feelings into your week and a plan to move you closer to your desires.

Wear comfortable clothing & bring a journal.

*Teens welcome
