How were you first introduced to ServiceNow? What was your first job using the platform?
I was headed down the path of being a .NET Web Developer as that was my first job out of college. Then I started looking for something in that area, until a local recruiter told me about a small company here in Richmond, VA. I was introduced to Techport 13 and ServiceNow back in 2011. While handling small tasks in the base applications back then my major task was to build a custom application for a bank based in the southern United States to handle their consumer and commercial loan process. With a lengthy workflow, many different moving parts, many different teams to process different loan types, and government regulations, that project was one that lasted multiple years.
What other jobs have you had working with ServiceNow?
Content Management System and now the Service Portal
Integrating assessments to be used as employee reviews with portal and platform views
Finding solutions that were easily maintained in the future but OOB ServiceNow functionality didn't have
Diving into Agent Workspace
Integrating outside applications and building process flows to handle what was needed
What are your primary ServiceNow skills?
A little bit of everything else over the years
What are your plans for the future in your career and in the ServiceNow industry?
I want to keep learning in multiple areas so I can continue to be a Swiss Army knife so to speak and most importantly make the people I consult for and work with happy. I know if I do that then the career progression will happen on its own.
