John K., Website Desginer/Developer

Hello, I’m John Kanost and I like to make things look NICE.  undefined

I’ve been making things look like nice on the web since 2003, and for Prelude Services and our clients since 2011. When I interviewed with Prelude, first over the phone and later in person, I was impressed with the thoroughness of the questions I was asked and the level of skill and knowledge that was demonstrated and expected that I should have. Prelude hires people who know what they’re doing, and I see that in the interactions I have every day with the people I work with here.

Having worked for large corporations in the past, I can say I enjoy much more the culture here at Prelude. Our smaller size means there are no unknown faces here; you’ll have a chance to work with and get to know almost everyone at some point. It also means that growth is encouraged; I’ve learned a lot since I came to Prelude and am still learning new things all the time!


Wendy E., Applications Analyst 

undefinedI was instantly drawn to Prelude Services by the diversity in the positions they utilized within their organization. When I first came across the section Positions We Utilize on their website, I instantly realized Prelude Services was growing company, and I knew that I wanted to be part of the Prelude Services organization. I quickly applied and accepted a job offer as Support Analyst in the Helpdesk.

A Place to Grow

One of the great things about a growing organization is finding that there are opportunities for personal growth and advancement. You get to discover the parts of your job that you enjoy, and find a career path that is right for you. After working on the Helpdesk for three years supporting end users, I knew my calling was application support, and accepted a position as an Application Analyst.

As an Application Analyst, I assist in implementing, upgrading, and supporting applications relating to patient care. Each day brings new and exciting challenges. Why are these challenges exciting? I am constantly learning about new processes, procedures, and new applications. I get to work directly with our clients, building relationships with our users. I get to discover each day how our clients are using their applications, and help them find the best solutions to the issues they are seeing.

There’s a wonderful feeling you get when you hear someone exclaim “You fixed it!”.

My advice to people who want to work here?

Our Human Resources department is wonderful about following up with applicants. Be prepared if you get an interview to be positive, friendly and sincere. Remember, a smile goes a long way!

    I have been working at Prelude Services full-time


    Benefits are very good for the size of the company. PTO is more than enough. Pay is a little under market but other things balance it out.


    You can work very long hours depending on the situation. Not big enough to have a lot of backup support.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Prelude Services in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty standard. I applied for the position through an online posting (HR website) and was contacted the same week for a phone interview from the current HR Manager at Prelude. After the phone interview, we scheduled a face to face interview with the Manager of Administration and Training and the President/CEO the same week. I was offered the position the same day I interviewed. The culture at Prelude was very professional and conservative.
