Welcome!

The purpose of this visual cv is to represent what I knowledge and skills I have throughout my college career at Purdue University. I feel that in my 4 years at Purdue, I have developed the necessary skills to be a more than capable member of the workforce. I understand that by graduating college and entering the job search, to some, I might be seen as a novice or newcomer. I am willing to prove that I am also a hard worker who has so much more to offer. Just because I will soon be graduated, doesn’t mean I am done learning. I am excited and enthusiastic about what else that there is to learn, whether that is on the job or in life in general. For all of these reasons I have listed, and for what you are about to uncover in my portfolio, I believe you will agree that I would be a valuable addition to any company.
