Young Joshua majored in a variety of fields, but he settled on one that focused on mechanical engineering. After graduating, he went back to the US in hopes of kick starting his career.
The fresh graduate landed his first job in Utah after a long period of applications, interviews, and rejections. There, Joshua worked as an equipment engineer. However, he did not enjoy the position.
When the company he worked with decided to create a corporate webpage, Fluke took his shot at it. Then, he found his new passion in website and software development.
On his days off from his mechanical engineering work, he ended up getting a part-time developer gig. One day, he quit his job and pursued a programming career. He got hired by startups and established companies.

He tackled health, lifestyle, college, coding tips, and various editing tutorials. Perhaps his most prevalent topic is how to land your dream job. He also launched a website relating to it. It’s called GrindReel.Academy, which has paid and free courses.
Joshua also became known for his blunt criticisms of corporate working environments. Some of his most controversial videos are those claiming that LinkedIn isn’t a trustworthy website. These kinds of videos have helped him gain over 504.000 subscribers.
