All posts by Adam Duthie

My name is Adam Duthie, and I am taking a leap of faith in changing my career path. Back in 2003 I graduated from Clackamas Community College with an associate’s degree in Networking. Unfortunately this was very bad timing for this minor degree that I had just received because of the events that happened on September 11, 2011. This hurt the .com industry severely and I had to decide to do further schooling or join the workforce. I went back to work because I needed money to survive and got a job at Circuit City. At Circuit City I quickly became an assistant manager. I really thought I had found my career until Circuit City declared bankruptcy and closed their doors. After Circuit City closed their doors I ventured into the wireless industry and started working for T-Mobile. I developed severe anxiety which led me to a big life decision. I needed to do something I love and have a passion for which is web site design and development. Presently I am enrolled at Clark College and I am pursuing a degree in web site design and development.
