◈ At STI Education
◈ Graduated 2011

list bulletAbout my college education: Information Technology deals with what's happening to our technology nowadays, especially when it comes to computers. How does it work, help? What's new about it. Stuff like that. But what I didn't like about it was, that you need to have a knowledge about programming. It was so hard especially the programming language called "java". I liked my chosen course because I have gotten knowledge of what's new in our environment. What's hot and what's not but I didn't like programming.

list bulletMy current job: None. I don't have a job yet

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I haven't got a job yet, but as soon as possible I'm gonna start to look for a job.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Information Technology: yes because I.T's are indemand now a days . . but if you choose to be an I.T you need to have courage of studying . . It is programming and it is your weapon in the future to have a good job and better life :)
