Dominic joined Generation in early summer 2017. After his graduation from the IT program, Fanatics, a global sports licensing company in Jacksonville, hired Dominic as a desktop support technician. Now CompTIA A+, CompTIA Fundamentals, and Cisco-certified, he credits Generation and his mentors and instructors for his success.
“I wanted to surround myself with motivated and driven individuals. I realized that it is okay to be myself when it’s paired with professionalism, goal-setting, and taking proactive action towards my goals.”
“I’ve been passionate about technology since I was 14. My sophomore year of high school, I became certified in systems virtualization. My junior year of high school I acquired an entry-level Cisco networking certification, and my final year before I graduated, I acquired my Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). This landed me a job as a wireless data network engineer, but I also worked an awful fast-food restaurant job while juggling the data network job for about a year. I realized at that point that I needed to get back on track and I saw my opportunity at Generation.”
As an avid skateboarder and photographer, he says “having competition and developing friendships with classmates was my favorite part of the program. Right now, as a desktop support technician, I provide desk-side PC, printer, and systems support for 1500 users. I’m currently studying for my associate’s certification in Microsoft Cloud Platform. My goal eventually is to be a cloud solutions architect.”
