Background From the beginning of my schooling, I had strong quantitative skills and therefore matriculated to the leading language at the American University in Cairo. I found that I had a talent for languages, especially English, and that there were more and better paying opportunities for me in the field of journalism and translation. Although I have not worked recently in the computer field, I am ready to take an entry-level position and am confident that I will be quickly up to speed and a productive employer and administrator.
Objective Secure an entry-level position.
