Divya: What’s your role within OIT?
Pedro: I am the web developer for the entire Department. I'm essentially tasked with making sure that our website not only looks good but is also functional and in compliance with brand and accessibility standards.
Divya: Does anybody work below you?
Pedro: Yes, I currently have one student worker that works for me.
Divya: Are there any projects you’re currently working on?
Pedro: I’ve recently finished creating the Innovation & Technology Summit website. Upcoming projects include creating a landing page for the Learning Management System (LMS) team as well as a redesign of the OIT website.
Divya: What does your student worker do?

Divya: Any plans to expand your team?
Pedro: I would definitely like to expand my team to include one additional student worker who can help out with the more mundane maintenance tasks.
