Q2. What are the things that you are passionate about? What are the things that you love to do?

Q3. Why do you want to pursue the career of being a developer/coder?

Q6. How do you vertically center-align an element in CSS/HTML?
A6. I usually use “padding” property but the easiest way is to use a CSS selector property called “vertical-align” with a value of “middle”. But there are a lot of factors that can affect the alignment like the display of an element or the parent of an element.
Q7. If you have site that looks like this: http://demo.woothemes.com/?name=canvas, how confident are you to say that you can make it look like this: http://www.ezistrategicplan.com.au on WordPress without using Dreamweaver or any other tools?
A7. Honestly, I have never used Dreamweaver but without using other tools like a photoshop for the photos or utilizing slider plugins it may be difficult but the design and the structure it can be done using plain CSS. The slider is manageable but it will take time if we will not use plugins for it.
Q8. Given that it is 40hrs per week, steady income with paid leave entitlements. What do you think is a fair weekly salary for this job (in Pesos)?
A8. 30 to 40 thousand pesos is a pretty good salary for this job but any salary you will give to me is ok as long as I have a good work to be proud of and good workmates that will help me grow and be productive.
