I just graduated from Baylor University in December, 2008 with a Computer Science major and Business minor.
As of January 30th I am also SJCP 6 certified which increased my understanding of Java and further enhanced my knowledge of object oriented programming. Now I am planning to continue expanding my programming knowledge with taking SCWCD exam on February 13th.
In regards to the possible business aspect of the position, I feel well prepared and confident from my business minor that I am sure I would make a great candidate for any programming position that requires production awareness.
I would also be ready to work in a low paid internship position to get a chance to prove to my superiors that I am a valuable addition to the company.
As of right now I am on the OPT which is valid for 12 months with 17 month extension because of my undergrad major.
I am a very dedicated and commited person, which I also proved with being a part of National Champion tennis team at Baylor and I have no doubt that I can prove myself again and utilize teamwork experience in my career as a software developer.
