How my career relates to my degree from RIT/NTID

The coursework I completed gave me the skills I needed to work as an IT specialist. Web development, network security, PC hardware, software, and working with operating systems such as Unix are just some of the courses required in my major. I took advantage of interpreters for meetings and workshops and tutoring services and the faculty was very helpful and available to me. Really, this career is a perfect match to my degree in Information Technology.

Advice: Jobs may be hard to find right now but keep looking. The right job can make for a very successful future.
