Cesar Guerrero graduated in May 2018 as the Digital Technology and Culture (DTC) Outstanding Senior and is now working in Reston, Virginia, as an associate consultant for Oracle, a computer technology corporation that specializes in cloud engineered systems, enterprise software products, and database software and technology.
Cesar helps to implement the company’s customer relationship management and service cloud base systems. He helps customers by planning, designing, and presenting solutions to their issues.
“It’s a challenging opportunity to learn more about cloud products early on in a career that revolves around tech,” said Cesar. He believes the skills he learned through DTC put him at an advantage in his field. He utilizes his storytelling skills when simplifying content for clients. The various pathways provided by the program enabled Cesar to diversify his work through digital tools like Adobe Photoshop and Autodesk Maya.
Throughout his time at WSU, Cesar was involved in a number of extracurriculars including Digital Media Club, Management Information Systems Club, Sigma Lambda Beta, College of Arts and Sciences student ambassadors, and The Crimson Group. Cesar also worked at the Office of Multicultural Student Services and interned as a Facilities Analyst at Boeing, where he focused on UX and UI development.
In addition to his job at Oracle, Cesar does photography and photo manipulation on the side.
Cesar’s advice to current DTC students is to look into all the program’s pathways early on. He also strongly recommends networking. Cesar believes the most valuable opportunity WSU gave him as a whole was the chance to meet incredible people.
