M.A.T.C. (Master's in Technical Communication) -- May 99
I am graduating in May 99, and have received a job offer to work as an
information technology consultant (Management Consulting) for a big 5
I know that a degree is a requirement there, and that the mixture of
computer programming and strong written/oral communication skills that came
with my M.A.T.C. really helped during the interview process, as far as what
they wanted in a candidate.
