I am graduating from Athens Technical College in Athens, GA in a week with an Associates Degree in Computer Programming and am currently looking for employment. I am looking for an entry-level/Jr. Java programming position. I am a SCJP for the Java 2 Platform. I am willing to relocate to any part of the US, preferably to the West. Entry-level programming jobs seem to be scarce in my area of the country. I am a hard worker and a fast learner and am desirous to continue on with my Java education as well as to obtain my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. I am a 4.0 student with a strong will to succeed. If given the opportunity, I am sure that I would be a great addition to anyone's staff. The problem is getting the opportunity... I am posting my resume along with this message. BRIAN A.
