Application for Internship with Cullen Web Services

  • This internship is 100% online/remote. It is important to me that you communicate well online, since that's how we will be working together if you are chosen for this internship.

    First, I'll tell you a little bit about me and Cullen Web Services. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN in 1989. I landed a job with the American Chemical Society in Columbus, OH right out of APSU. I stayed there for a couple of years and then moved back to TN and worked for General Electric Informations Services in Brentwood. When my children were small, I wanted to stay home with them, so I quit GE to stay home. The web was only getting started when I left GE.

    I played around with 'web development' to keep myself sane while my kids were toddlers, and started my own freelance web development business in 2003. I taught computer classes for homeschoolers, high schoolers, online students and at Hopkinsville Community College. I also, of course, built websites for all types of small businesses.

    In 2008, I took a job at an agency in Nashville, TN, Iostudio,LLC, and learned even more about building small and large-scale websites for clients such as Daily's Convenient stores, Roy Orbison, the National Guard and many others. I still hung onto my freelance business on the side and decided to hit it full time again in 2010.

    I now serve many clients with hosting, domains, security, maintenance and development. Many of my clients use WordPress, but some development is in Laravel, PHP/MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, and HTML/CSS.

    I enjoy the freedom of working from anywhere there is internet since I love to travel. I now live in an RV and travel the US while programming and developing websites on the road.

    I have several other contractors whom I work with on a regular basis. Most of them started as interns with me. If you are chosen for this internship, you may very well be working with some of these contractors on the projects they are responsible for.
  • Please rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 for each of the following, with 1 being, "I've never heard of it", 5 being, "I've used it once maybe", and 10 being, "I'm an expert!".

  • This internship is to help you learn. It is up to you to make the most of it. You will only get out of it what you put into it. The more you put into it, the more you will learn. I want to help you learn, but I won't force you to learn it. I don't have time to hold your hand and push you to do the work. The more you work and the more you do, then the more I will give you and the more you will learn.

    If you are working for college credit, I can only give you a 'Satisfactory' or 'Unsatisfactory' grade. So, it's really up to you as to how much you will learn. You will be responsible for filling out what you've done on your evaluation, so you will want to keep good notes and do the work so that you have something to report.

    I've had many interns over the years. I've enjoyed working with all of them and even offered contract jobs to some of them when the internship was over. I continue to be a reference for some of the interns. My advice is to make the most of this and learn as much as you possibly can. But, in the end, it's really all up to you. Since this is a remote internship, I can only help you as much as you let me.
