||Name, Title, Company:
Quelina M. Jordan, President, Centralian Consulting
BS Mathematics - Central State University (OH), MBA Management of Global Information
Technology - American University (DC)
What you do:
Centralian Consulting Services is a minority-owned, female-owned business and is a
relaxing, expressive blend of technology and cultural responsibility, set forth to aid the
local, national, and global community in the adoption of information technology.
Based in Washington, DC, we welcome challenging
opportunities to apply fresh new ideas in our immediate region and throughout the globe.
While our primary focus is to provide web design, hosting
and maintenance services to not-for-profit organizations and small businesses, we also
work with larger firms and federal agencies on a variety of short- and long-term projects.
The path you took to get there:
Hanging out with the computer science majors on newsgroups and in talk sessions during
undergraduate planted the seed. Followed by a short stint with the Department of Energy
practicing information management and learning HTML on my own, then embracing my passion
for the unity fostered by the Internet, I started Centralian on a wing and prayer!
Build your reputation as a professional first-- it doesn't have to be webcentric, just
have integrity--then find out what you really like about the 'Net and go for it
with all that you've got! For example, I like learning new things by being a
"freelance" webmaster. Know that there will be downturns, but remember that the
students in Timbuktu didn't learn everything in just one night.
