"My passion for telecommunications comes from a love of computers. I've worked with computers, building them and deconstructing them, since my teenage years. After I finished school, I went to college and completed a degree in computer science. Since graduating, I've worked as a Telecommunications Specialist. I love this work as it's full of challenges and problems to solve. It provides me with the opportunity to learn something new every day."
"I recently graduated with my diploma in Telecommunications Technology, with a focus on computer applications. I completed a 3-month internship this summer with (Company ABC), and I am now looking for my first true employment opportunity in the telecommunications industry. I am excited about this potential role with Level 3 Communications because it will offer me the chance to grow my career with a well-respected organization."
