This section focuses on all the opportunities available for instructional designers ranging from business to the military, health care, education and international settings. My husband is a computer programmer. My background is in business and marketing. We have started a business with the intention of providing computer consulting to small to medium sized businesses. This consulting will entail database design, web design, networking and any other computer services the client may need.
I have a bachelor of science degree in business with an emphasis in Marketing. I worked as a Marketing Manager for 7 years. After having my son I became more interested in educating him. Thus, my interest have shifted to education. I currently work as a student advisor for an outreach program at USC. I love helping children reach their goals. I believe all children deserve a good education where they are able to not only learn the basics but, also learning higher-level thinking skills such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation. I believe this will help students become active participants in the learning process as well as, help them secure better careers in the future.
Since my interests now include education. I believe I will also use my Instructional Technology skills in my current position helping students use technology to learn informally. My husband and I also plan to incorporate consulting educational institutions into our computer consulting business.
