Advanced I.T. Skills

Microsoft office? Child’s play! You’ve got highly developed I.T. skills that’d run rings around the average schmuck.

Parlez-vous francais? Nope, but you’ve got the language of programming nailed. Whether its schooling in Java, C++ or advanced algorithms, your degree has given you a firm foundation in programming.
