Bio

My name is Matthew Davila and I was born in Watertown, NY but raised in Big Spring, TX. I was a former pre-Med student at Mizzou for a little over a year before realizing that I was much more passionate about Computer Science. Before coming to Centriq, I was a Price & Signage Coordinator at DICK’S Sporting Goods and a Driver for Enterprise Rent-A-Car, where I learned valuable skills in the service industry that I look forward to transitioning into the technological field. Using the knowledge and skills gained from Centriq, I am very excited and optimistic to see where my future career leads me.

‘Tis the Season to Job Search

‘Tis the Season to Job Search

December 23, 2019 in IT Career Program / by Alex Carnahan

Nobody is hiring over the holidays, so what’s the point in job searching…right? 

This is a common misconception and it can be very tempting to put your job search on hold over the holidays, but what most people don’t know is that it can actually be one of the best times to job search! Employers hire all year round, including the holiday season. In fact, for some businesses, the slower holiday season can mean even more time for hiring. 

Still not quite convinced to pause the holiday movies, put down the milk and cookies, and submit some applications? View the five reasons below to help get in the job searching spirit!  Read More

Bio

I started on a traditional route to a state university, where I accumulated a small house worth of debt. I decided to join the Army rather than continue to accumulate debt. I enjoyed my time in the Army and it was not an easy decision to separate, although I can’t say I miss all the running. I spent about three years working at a help desk and found that I enjoyed solving technical problems.

What SharePoint is Used for & Why it’s the Center of the O365 Universe

 

We are all creatures of habit. And the biggest business habit is email. A form of technology invented in 1971 is too often the primary tool to communicate and collaborate in today’s business environment. Think about that. We have stretched that outdated technology to work in a way it was not initially intended. We make folders. We make subfolders. We scroll through endless conversations in the all-too-often vain attempt to find attachments. We need a productivity-boosting, headache-ending upgrade.

Enter SharePoint – the center of the O365 universe.
