How my career relates to my degree from RIT/NTID

I used what I had learned to successfully complete a full range of assignments. The co-op gave me insights into the importance of understanding organizational management and corporate culture and helped me learn more about the development of workplace skills. I also was able to apply my considerable knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite. I am a very motivated person and student, and that really helps on the job.
