How did your degree program at Haywood Community College prepare you for your current job?
I knew only the basics about computers when I started the Information Technology program at HCC. The programming, database, and web development courses gave me the skills to function successfully in the business world as a web developer. In addition, HCC gave me the foundation to learn new skills as I needed to acquire them.

Your work experience:
Previous to my employment I did not have much training in the technology field. Due to the classes that I took, I had an advantage when looking for jobs. Employers always like to hear about
what you learned in college so they can find ways to use it in their business.
How did your degree program at Haywood Community College prepare you for your current job?
It provided me with the general knowledge that jobs are currently looking for. Because of my degree at Haywood I was able to find a job in my field in less than a year after graduating.
