2010

I trended top 1% in the country in sales before leaving Verizon Wireless. I was able to increase sales exponentially through a combination of hard work and unconventional means by thinking outside of the box. Top performers typically exceed the sales quota by 300%, but I did not stop there---I exceeded it by over 900%.

I had an idea for a startup so I found a partner and it became my first startup experience. I channeled all of my passion into it and ended up routinely working 15+ hour days in hopes to turn the idea into reality. Ultimately, I made lots of mistakes and failed to launch the product. The experience itself was not a failure though, as I learned something new for every mistake that was made.

I worked directly with the President of the TJ Media (US branch) to sign a music licensing deal with one of the largest music publishers in the US. There were multiple rounds of negotiation meetings with execs / VPs. After each rejection, we had to make strategic pivots until we eventually succeeded.

I decided that I wanted to become a dev. I wanted to maximize my learning for each hour spent, so I decided to go through a coding bootcamp. But I felt that that wasn't enough. I needed more hours in a day, so I gained an extra 5 hours per day by sleeping 4 hours per day on the Everyman 3 sleep schedule.

Within a 6 month period after entering a coding bootcamp, I was able to learn quickly enough to be able to:

  • Become a fullstack engineer
  • Pass a Node.js Certification exam
  • Compete in 3 hackathons, winning top prizes in all 3
  • Receive 4 job offers from 3 companies

During my initial phone interview with Accenture, I was rejected within the first 3 minutes because their company policy requires all hires to have a college degree---but I did not give up. I stayed persistent by asking the recruiter for all of their requirements and the qualities that they were looking for. Then, I made the best rebuttal that I could. It ended up being a long process but ultimately, Accenture ended up becoming my first job as an engineer.

I had a few months before my start date at Accenture and it ended up being one of my least productive periods in recent memory. I knew that I couldn't risk having that mindset carry over, so I needed to give myself a wake-up call. After learning that the office would be open 24/7, I decided to live out of the office and sleep in my car, so that I would be forced to stay productive and wouldn't have any chance at feeling comfortable.

Working at a startup requires you to wear multiple hats. Being one of the first hires at a growing startup requires you to excel at wearing said hats. At Infuse:

  • The CEO, PM, and I pitched a six-figure deal to a client. We closed it and they became our biggest client to date.
  • I managed a dev team for the entirety of one of our biggest projects. They became one of our best case studies.

(continued)

  • I was the client-facing account manager for one of our projects. They ended up signing on for another contract with us.
  • I was the lead dev for one of our projects. They ended up signing on for another contract with us.

During the holidays at Infuse, we were given an unrealistic deadline from one of our main clients. Although we all knew that we wouldn't be able to make the deadline, I still had to do what I could to contribute as much as possible. I decided to work through my holiday break. The only day I took off was Christmas Day and although we didn't make the deadline, our client was pleased with what we were able to do.

My name is Peter Kim and welcome to my online portfolio!

I focused the concept of this portfolio site into addressing three key areas:

    1. What I've done in the past

    2. What I'm capable of doing as of now

    3. How I've handled situations leading up to now

For #1, you'll see some of my personal projects that I've worked on in the past.

For #2, you'll see the list of technical skills that I currently have (and I'm open to learning more as needed).

For #3, you'll see a timeline with a list of some of my experiences that I've hand-picked (time for some self-boasting!). Some are work-related, others are not.

My goal for this portfolio site is to leave you with a sense of how I would perform in your work environment. Because after all, isn't the goal of the hiring process to ultimately figure out who would be the best performer?

Thanks for reading and I hope that you'll like what you see!

About Me

  • I'm an ENTJ, looking to meet other NT's!
  • I'm obsessed with personal development
  • I take pride in avoiding mistakes from lessons previously learned whether I learned it personally or vicariously
  • My level of respect for someone is directly proportionate to the level of moral standards that they live by
  • I love overcoming challenges, especially ones that require unconventional approaches
  • I am extremely rationally-driven so I don't perform as well in emotionally-driven work environments
