My name is Dick Lewis and I live in Prescott, Arizona. I’m retired after a long and somewhat successful career in Information Technogogy. After retiring I like so many more retirees felt that because I have been so fortunate in life and especially having chose the right career for myself, I should somehow give back. I chose Career Coaching as a way to accomplish this. I believe that it is smart to learn from other peoples experiences. I have created several video presentations on this web site that will help anyone seeking to start a career in IT. In my 60 years in IT I was fortunate to have held several of the many positions in this discipline. Programmer, Analyst, Project Manager, Hardware designer, Software Developer and Program Manager to name a few. In reference to the content of these videos I would recommend the following:
Career Planning: For anyone planning any career. This contains information on resume writing, interview preparation and job searching. I was myself on both sides of the interview table many times giving me a good understanding of the process and what one should or should not do.
My Career: For anyone planning to go into IT. Even if you have not fully made up your mind on doing this, I present what it was like for me including lessons on what worked and what did not work. Again included here are some suggestions regarding how to be successful.
Starting a Business: Having founded two software development business’s I give an IT’s perspective on starting and running a software house. Computer History: This video illustrates the changes I saw during my career in IT in both hardware and software. Good to get an idea of what magnitude and type of changes you may see in your IT career. These videos are of course free and you can replay them or pause them as desired.
