In my current role, I assist clients with fulfillment needs as it pertains to services through HBCUConnect. Making sure that the client gets what they need and what they expect is priority. I also conduct tools training to clients who wish to utilize our services to recruit diverse talent. This mainly consists of using our resume database tool as well as posting job and internship opportunities. If it is a service that we provide, I am usually in the loop at some point and time to help facilitate and make sure we execute on everything promised.
Technical Lead | American Direct, Inc.
From April 2003 to June 2005 • 2 year(s)
In this position, I made sure all of our technical capabilities were up to par and in working order. This included computers (software and hardware), printers, phone systems, and surveillance systems. I often assisted the Sales team with creating contracts when a sale was made. I helped handle membership inquiries as well as handled cash and check transactions. I also assisted in the "store" of American Direct in various capacities. I helped develop their client-facing web site using ASP/HTML/Javascript.
Web Application Developer/ Programmer | MCI Worldcom / UUNET
From March 2000 to July 2002 • 2 year(s)
In this role. I was tasked to develop and maintain several java and web applications JAVA, JAVA SERVLETS, JSPs, JAVASCRIPT, and HTML. Various other applications and programs were also developed based on customer and developers needs. Utilized VISUAL SOURCESAFE and VISUAL CAFE programs and apps. Used an ORACLE database as a backend application to store information and documents for all projects all in a UNIX environment. I was also responsible for dministering a WINDOWS 2000 server with help. Activities included starting and stopping processes, rebooting the server, adding applications to the server, adding users for FTP access, etc. I was also the WEBMASTER of our team's intranet site for over a year in which I overlooked all applications and content on the server.
Adjunct Professor | DeVry University

At DeVry, one 3-hour night per week, I lectured college students on the basics of the JAVA programming language on a weekly basis. Subject matter included java applications, Object Oriented Programming (OOP), java GUI with SWING components, java APPLETS, some multimedia (*sound and images*), and file input and output (I/O).
Technical Staff Member/Programmer | Lucent Technologies /Bell Labs

In this role, I debugged existing C programming code in a UNIX environment and then tested it on multiple platforms using Unit Testing procedures. Modified proprietary software for the Year 2000 issue. Created numerous C programs to assist in solving low to high priority bug fixes and Modification Requests (MRs). Programming fixes were documented and bundled up in a package to be sent out to customer sites and installed. I then took a break from being the programmer to being part of Lecent's software deployment team for 9+ months where we installed/upgraded software at various Bell Atlantic sites in the NE US. Major traveling was involved as well as stays at a site for weeks at a time. Provided technical support to Bell Atlantic customer sites during the process of upgrading their switch surveillance systems.

Hello Reggie. I am elated to be a member of HBCU Connect. I am a graduate of the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana School of Architecture with a BS in Architectural Studies and a graduate of ITT Technical Institute with an AAS in Computer-Aided Drafting Technology. Although I didn't attend an HBCU, I intend to support my Black Brothas and Sistas on their journey towards achieving their goals. With that said, I know firsthand the struggles of paying fees and tuition. Even with scholarship assistance at the University of Illinois, there were things that I struggled to pay for. Now, having been in the workforce for several years, I have younger loved-ones who will hopefully be going to college someday, hopefully an HBCU, and I strive to help them avoid the pitfalls I’ve experienced. I’m am so excited to have come across an amazing means of saving for college, where, instead of saving for 15 to 18 years, I can compress my time to save down to 3 to 5 years, with a better yield! Take a look at the attached YouTube video, about 9 mins long, and then share your thoughts. Thank you!

Thank you for visiting my profile. The website presentation ( ) is not directly about paying off student loans. But Take notice of the 2nd testimonial when the single mother talks about sharing this LightYear Wireless concept with her 2 daughters. IT was at that moment I decided to put together a simple spend sheet that any HBCU-CONNCTION student could use to take control of their student debt. MY basic theory using this LightYear Wireless concept was to help you & other students to do this just 1 time/wk. You will learn how to earn weekly income (so that you can just to enjoy the college life) & monthly residual income. It is the residual income that I'm trying to show you in the spread sheet on how to payoff your student loans. Please simple reply so that I can send you a FREE copy of this spend sheet. If you have any questions email me back or call @ 609-815-1958

Thanks for the heads up! I love HBCU bands. I've been a fan of drum and bugle corps competitions but these bands could learn much from HBCU bands.
