Advancements in technology are always happening and in fact with certain things such as operating systems, video cards, graphic cards, motherboards etc. are advancing every six months to help improve the ever growing world of technology that some people need or want. I would love to be a part of that in an analytical kind of way. I would do the research that is necessary to come up with ideas for companies to help upgrade their computers and any technology devices they use for their business. Even if it were to help with organization, faster output for reports or forms, and more business. I could use my skills such as programming, website designing, researching, training, networking, and putting things together (i.e. computers, printers, fax machines, programs, and websites). Therefore, what I would be making a living on is working as a Computer Systems Analyst.

My goals are already in progress by already received my Associates in Information Systems Specialist at Trident Technical College in North Charleston, South Carolina and attending Southern New Hampshire University in the program called Computer Information Technology of Science. However, my other goals are to volunteer at some local businesses that deal with computers as in putting them together. Also, to volunteer at my previous school in their IT department. Those goals are to get some hands on training as well as experience in what I would like to do for a living. My passion are computers and technology because ever since I was six years of age I have been working or playing on computers. I have also in the past in my younger days put computers together without previous knowledge on how to do so as well as an instruction manual. I can do that with just about anything. I am a very fast learner and am quite organized.
