Have a great week!
This article on Forbes really caught my eye. As I read, I realized that the tech skills they are talking about aren’t the ones that typically come to mind for college students. Really, mastery of many of the technologies you all take for granted is what is so desired. Do you think putting word or Google Suite on your resume is a waste of space? Think again! Many organizations need people who are comfortable with such technology
